The High-Performance Choice For Speed Events

Designed for use in barrel racing, roping, and general rodeo events, the ABI Speedmaster allows faster run times and helps protect both horse and rider from injury. Offering ultimate control, The ABI Speedmaster is the only speed events arena drag that features independent hydraulically-controlled loosening, leveling, and adjustable grooming components!

Ground-Engaging Components




Min Tractor H.P.


Limited Warranty


The Speedmaster features independent ground-engaging components arrayed and designed expressly for speed events. The hydraulic leveling blade allows users to expertly re-level footing from the seat of the tractor and the hydraulic rippers quickly and powerfully pulverize compacted areas. The PTO Water System allows operators to knock down dust along high-traffic areas without using a second piece of equipment. The Grooming Rods re-integrate the freshly groomed footing and create an even and consistent depth. The Rolling Basket and Finish Rake are the perfect 1-2 punch for knocking out any remaining surface inconsistencies and creating a picture-perfect finish. The result? Quick, professional arena grooming that inspires confidence in every competitor.


Independent Ground Engaging Components

For ultimate control, all of the ground engaging components are independently adjustable, enabling you to get the perfect footing, base and finish for any discipline.

Water System Features

PTO Water System

The ABI SpeedMaster features a watering system that maintains footing moisture levels and knocks down dust created by the drag during operation. This 110 gallon system uses a powerful PTO pump and brass flood nozzles, which are adjustable, making it easy to apply water for specific applications, such as the barrel pattern. Event facilities that drag frequently during events will appreciate this system’s ability to apply more water more quickly than competitors. The SpeedMaster’s PTO water system allows you to continually add water between runs, maintaining footing shear strength and stability, and controlling dust throughout the facility for horses, competitors and spectators alike. For additional water application needs, ABI offers a variety of water trailers perfect for any arena!


Hydraulic Rippers

The ABI SpeedMaster features several independently controlled ground engaging components allowing for 5 points of control over the arena footing material. The double row of offset hydraulic rippers provides variable loosening action ideal for speed events. To enhance material flow and reduce large dirt clods, ABI’s exclusive double row of offset ripping teeth have more shanks per foot for increased consistency. With hydraulic control from the seat of the tractor, the operator is empowered to precisely control footing conditions with ease. Each shank has replaceable bolt on tips, for easy and affordable maintenance.

Features - Leveling Blade

Leveling Blade

The ABI SpeedMaster brings significant advancement in performance drag design with the game changing hydraulic leveling blade! This innovative feature is exclusive to ABI! The SpeedMaster’s leveling blade moves independently from the frame so the operator can level an arena without lifting the 3 point connection and disengaging the drag’s other components. This precision hydraulic control is crucial for properly preparing footing for speed events!

Features - Grooming Rods

Grooming Rods

The ABI SpeedMaster features custom made rods designed specifically for grooming horse arenas. These two offset rows of replaceable grooming rods condition every inch of the footing to ensure ridge free consistency. The one inch diameter rods may be adjusted to properly condition the footing material after it has been loosened by scarifiers and leveled by the blade.The rods are strategically spaced and set at the ideal angle to allow for exceptional material flow and grooming results.

Features - Rolling Basket

Rolling Basket

The rolling basket on the ABI SpeedMaster does much more than simply leave behind a rolled surface. This uniquely designed basket functions to control the drag’s operating depth and helps to prevent the drag from following tractor undulations. It pulverizes footing clods with ease as it packs the loosened material creating a stable footing ideal for speed events. The innovative rolling basket leaves behind a small top coat of loosened footing material to provide proper cushion and grip in the footing profile.

Speedmaster - Finish Rake

Finish Rake

The finish rake is the final ground contact point and creates the ABI SpeedMaster’s signature finish. This rake is adjustable and can be locked down or allowed to float. This customization enables the SpeedMaster to create the perfect finish in nearly any footing material composition or moisture conditions. The rake is constructed of 1/2″ thick laser cut steel that is replaceable in one foot sections and is split in the middle for easier handling and consistent ground contact.

  1. Boyd Polhamus (store manager)

    This thing is going to last a while. You couldnt wear it out. And then I actually watched Ron Stephenson, whos the ground guy in Fort Madison, work the ground with this tool. And it was one of the most amazing pieces of equipment Ive ever seen in my life.

  2. Dan Wall (General Manager, The Lazy E Arena) (store manager)

    At the Lazy E Arena, were known for our world-class speed and timed events, and we need to ensure our competitors that the playing field is level. We trust the ABI Speedmaster, ABI DragMaster Elite & TR3-E Trevor Brazile Edition drags to quickly and consistently create the best possible footing conditions for each and every competitor at the Lazy E.

  3. Randy Spraggins (Owner of Special-T-Track) (store manager)

    There is quite a bit of pressure, setting up the footing for major events like NFR, The American, Professional Bull Riders Tour, and Helldorado Days. We rely heavily on our equipment to get the job done right to produce the footing that these athletes require to perform in these fast paced events. Ive been installing the ground for major events for several years and when it comes to the ABI Speedmaster, nothing is more reliable. Leveling, watering, ripping, and resetting the surface can all be done within a pass or two. That is all we have time for in between runs. The ABI Speedmaster manages all of that with ease and that is why we take it everywhere we go.
