The 16-race NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock Motorcycle schedule kicks off Thursday through Sunday, March 13th through 16th as part of the 2014 Amalie Motor Oil NHRA GatorNationals at Auto Plus Raceway at Gainesville in Florida

Defending PSM champ Matt Smith will be back with his Buell after capturing four wins in eight final-round appearances on his way to the title. Wife Angie, who finished 13th in points last season, will also be back with the team, as will John Hall, who won two Wallys in 2013. The racing Smith family also includes father Rickie, who was last season’s NHRA Pro Mod Series champ, marking the first time in NHRA history that a father and son captured titles in the same season.

Another family heavily involved in the NHRA is the Arana family, with father Hector leading sons Hector Jr. and Adam. They’ll be joined in the category by Harley riders Eddie Krawiec and Andrew Hines, Michael Ray and rookie Chaz Kennedy, who is likely to be a contender for the Automobile Club of Southern California Road to the Future Award.
