NRHA NEWS – EAC Schedule Changes Due to Large Entries


Oklahoma City, OK – July 7, 2009 – The NRHA European Affiliate Championship (EAC) competition runs July 10 – 12 in Svedala, Sweden. Due to entries nearly doubling in the event, the show schedule has been modified. The changes will provide exhibitors and judges with much shorter days than under the original schedule. See below for changes.

In addition to the EAC, the Summer Slide Show is held consecutively and features a full slate of NRHA ancillary classes. So whether competitors qualify for the Championship or are looking for an NRHA-approved show with substantial payouts, there is a place for everyone to play.

NRHA Corporate Partners wholeheartedly support this competition. Champions were awarded a package that included saddles from Pard’s Western Shop; handmade Rios of Mercedes/Anderson Bean Boots, and Classic Equine products. The Champions will be the envy of many with a variety of NRHA trophies such as Lawson and Morrison bronze trophies, pewter trophies and plaques.
