Hawaya Racing Products is proud to announce that they will once again provide sponsorship money for the Pro Fuel Harley class in 2019. Hawaya Racing has provided sponsorship for the Pro Fuelers in the Man Cup every year since inception other than in 2018 when OCR was the title sponsor. With this new sponsorship package some things will change for the better. For one, we will have a purse increase over the previous years, second, all bikes entered that make a qualifying run will race (up to 16 bikes), #1 qualifying money to the #1 qualifier at each event and a specially designed Championship jacket to be awarded to the 2019 National Champion.

“We are very excited to be able once again to Sponsor the Manufacturers Cup Races for 2019, says Johnny Vickers, president of Hawaya Racing, Inc. In recent past years we have had to reduce our sponsorship due to the down turn in the economy. Now that the economy is greatly improved, we have once again reached out to corporate America for funding for the Pro Fuel class in the Manufacturers Cup events for 2019, and they have not disappointed us. The Pro Fuelers being the only other full time Nitro class to the Top Fuel bikes, have been a big hit with the spectators at these events and exposed people from all over the world to this great class of side by side, wheels up Nitro Harleys.”

HRP along with the Man Cup management will announce the payout schedule in the next few days, but in a nutshell, up to 8 bikes is $1200.00 to win guaranteed. With 16 bikes, $2000.00 to win. Entry fees will remain the same for 2019 as was 2018.

As in previous Manufacturers Cup races, the Pro Fuel class will consist of a qualified 8 - 16 bike field and will run under typical AHDRA Pro Fuel class rules.

We would like to give a big thanks to Sam White Racing and Jay Regan, both of who were instrumental in helping us secure this sponsorship package for 2019.

Magic Dry Top Fuel Harley rider Rickey House sets sights on 2019 world championship

HOUSTON (Feb. 5) -- Rickey House has been a multi-time national event winner and solid title contender in the two years since the Mickey Thompson Tires Top Fuel Harley Drag Racing Series has competed on the NHRA stage. This season he wants to add "world champion" to his list of accomplishments.

That quest begins in earnest this weekend at the 59th annual Lucas Oil Winternationals in Pomona, Calif., the first of 10 events on the Top Fuel Harley schedule.

Matched up against the best in the sport, House has bravely fought against his adversaries, and with the continued support of Tommy Thompson -- this year through the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent brand -- he shows no signs of slowing down. And even though he's a small operation out of his own motorcycle repair shop in Humble, Texas, he routinely shows the ability to run with the top bikes.

"We stopped by Phoenix to test on the way out here to Pomona," House said. "I really just wanted to make sure we'd put the bike together properly and that the engine was ready. I told myself if we ran a 6.35 or quicker I wouldn't make but one pass. Right out of the trailer we ran a 6.338 at 221 mph, and we stumbled a bit during that one, so I loaded it back up and headed out.

"I just decided not to push my luck. That motor has to make it seven more runs so I don't want to wear it out yet. I'm pretty satisfied with what we did. We were going to run that motor once and then change it out and test the other one but I decided not to after it tried to drizzle a couple of times. I didn't want to get everything switched out and then watch it rain."

Since he assembled both of his powerplants exactly the same way, House feels confident he'll be ready to go this weekend in Pomona and two weeks later when the NHRA tour returns to Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park for the 35th annual Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Arizona Nationals.

"That'll be a huge race because Magic Dry is the title sponsor," House said. "We want to win them all but winning that one would be extra special. Hopefully the weather will be a little bit different. I don't care for the rain and high winds we had last weekend.

"I always run pretty well in Phoenix but for some reason I go to Pomona and struggle. I got lucky and made it to the finals in Pomona last year but I feel like I've got to change something up to repeat that this weekend. I'll be working on a tune-up this week. We'll look at the track prep and the weather and go from there.

"We only race 10 times so every event is big. If we want to be champions, we need to be ready every time."

Top Fuel Harley qualifying for the Lucas Oil Winternationals is set for 2:15 p.m., Friday, and 11:30 a.m. and 3:15 p.m., Saturday. Eliminations begin at 1 p.m., Sunday.
