PNSCA Racers attend Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School

Earlier this spring, Chuck Linne and his sister, Debra Johnson, traveled to Las Vegas Motor Speedway to attend Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School. Chuck was there to take the classroom-only class and give Debra moral support. Ed Hauter also attended.

Frank does a great job of giving you the mental and physical ingredients that are critical to winning rounds. I think Chuck will agree that going through Frank’s class is a great tune-up for any Super comp racer.

Debra, who lives in Michigan, took the full Super Comp Licensing class. She had attended a PNSCA race in Bremerton and got hooked on drag racing last year. Before attending the school, Debra’s only racing experience was backing Chuck’s dragster into his trailer. She had never have been down a race track prior to strapping into one of Franks unique student friendly dragsters!

Debra plans to purchase her own dragster this year and have Chuck maintain and transport it to the track. She plans to fly in from Michigan and will be a “lock” for the long distance award at the PNSCA events she attends this year — if we had one. Debra plans to complete her license prior to the first PNSCA race at Bremerton driving Greg Linne’s car that she hopes to purchase.

Some of our other PNSCA racers Greg and Darla Pessemier also plan to attend Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School (classroom-only) in Las Vegas in June.
