It's been more than 25 years since the North American Amateur Drivers Association has competed against their Hungarian counterparts but on Friday, Sept 1 and Saturday Sept. 2 a five-man harness racing NAADA team will renew the challenge at Kincsem Park in Budapest.

The participating members of NAADA team traveling to Hungary for the International Friendship Competition next weekend include, NAADA president, Joe Faraldo, NAADA vice president, Alan Schwartz, along with Peter Kleinhans, Paul Minore and Bob Davis.

"This will be our third overseas International Friendship Competition since the late spring," noted president, Faraldo. "Earlier this year we raced against our counterparts from France and from Italy and as usual we were treated like Royalty. We're now making plans to offer the French, the Italians, and the Hungarians a chance to come to America and let us entertain them and race against us on our dirt."

As usual, winning is secondary in International competitions. According to Faraldo "Winning or losing is incidental in these international driving competitions.. It's all about sharing the comradery we've fostered over the years and we, and they, look forward to these annual races in each of our countries."

Below is the itinerary for the upcoming NAADA vs Hungary Friendship Competition.
