The McKinney Motorsports team rolled into Valdosta’s South Georgia Motorsports Park with a third straight Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) championship for rider Eric McKinney already notched on their trailer wall. They left with a Pro Mod win for rider/tuner Ashley Owens and both ends of the Manufacturers Cup record, with McKinney laying down the Man Cup’s first 3 second pass.

It was a great way to cap off a hard-fought season for the Hamersville, Ohio based team that now has six Pro Extreme Motorcycle (PXM) championships—three PDRA, two ADRL, and one AMA/Dragbike.

See the speed, hear the noise, and smell the tire smoke and race fuel as Eric and Ashley rip up the SGMP eighth mile in this video.
