RALEIGH, N.C. - Motorcycle racing legend and Top 100 dealer Ray Price has been inducted into the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame at a ceremony held in Henderson, N.C., by the Vance County Tourism Department.

Ray and his wife Jean attended the 12th annual event, which was held Oct. 20 at the Vance-Granville Community College Civic Center. The East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame weekend has grown into one of the nation’s largest gatherings for drag racing cars, muscle cars, street rods and motorcycles.

“I’m honored to be inducted into the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame and join so many drag racing legends,” said Ray Price, founder of Ray Price Harley-Davidson and Ray Price Triumph in Raleigh, and Ray Price Triumph/Ducati of Fayetteville.

The East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame and the Vance County Tourism Department promote the impact of hot rodding and drag racing, which has become a major motorsports industry with an estimated $1 billion impact on the nation’s economy.

Price also has been inducted into the American Motorcycle Association Hall of Fame, the Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame, the National Motorcycle Museum, and the N.C. Drag Racing Hall of Fame.
