Street to Compete at the Mid-West Drag Racing Series
Throwdown in Tulsa
TULSA, OKLAHOMA (April 26, 2022) The exciting Pro Street
class has competed at Throwdown in different variations
for years. However, in 2022, the class becomes part of the
MWDRS at both Throwdowns with the possibility of being
added to others in 2022 and 2023.
Dave Pierce of Tulsa’s iconic Dave’s Claremore RV had a
vision and desire to compete again himself after stepping
out of the seat of the family-owned and campaigned Purple
Gorilla Nitrous Pro Mod several years ago. The Pro Street
class has seen the track in Tulsa for years, with a few
“I really wanted to revive the class and make it
competitive and give us something to build on. The radial

Jason Line Pro Stock car, are perfect for this class which
aims to resurrect some of the cars people have in their
After conversations with other racers and series Founder
Keith Haney, it all came together quickly this spring.
“We love Pro Street here in Tulsa. This is a great chance
to get some racers who maybe stepped away back in the
game. There are so many ex-Pro Stock cars around that need
to get back on track”, states Haney.
“I spoke to quite a few of the local Tulsa and OKC racers
and the class evolved with rules. The goal was to keep it
under control and not let it get out of hand money-wise.
The best way to do this was to base it off a 4.20 index
with a Pro Tree and no Handicapped start”, says Pierce.
Thanks to sponsorship help from Dave’s Claremore RV,
racers will compete for a $4400 purse (8-car field) or
$5800 purse (16-car field) at both Throwdowns.
