The Championship was organised in order to generate funds for charity, with the main benefactor of the project being the Air Force Seva Vanitha Fund; a government charity organisation.

The DRASL was in partnership with the Ceylon Motor Sports Club, the oldest motorsport club in Sri Lanka, which was founded in 1934. The Drag Racing Association of Sri Lanka was established in November 2017, by five individuals who are truly passionate about drag racing. The club was initiated to bridge the gap between drag racing enthusiasts and professional racing organisers.
