Jr. Street and Jr. Drag Racing

Share

 

During the 2015 season we will be running Jr Street and Jr Drag Racing just about every other Saturday Starting April 18. Gates will open at 12noon, and Jr programs have the track from 1-3pm. 1-2pm will be an open time shot "Happy Hour", at 2pm we will run a qualifying round, and then we will call 1st round of eliminations. We will start calling adult race classes to the staging lanes to start around 3pm. This should give parents with children involved with Jr Street or JDRL time to race as well. Gift cards will be awarded to Winner and Runner-up in each class. 

 

NHRA’S YOUTH HELP NAME NEWEST YOUTH PROGRAM

NHRA recently introduced their new youth racing program for 13-16 year olds (14-16 in NJ) that will give teenage boys and girls the opportunity to race against their peers in full-bodied street vehicles with an adult co-driver as their teammate that combines racing and car safety
Through the NHRA JDRL Facebook page, an online poll was introduced to select a fitting name for the program. After several weeks and hundreds of votes, one name stood out above the rest, NHRA Jr. Street.

This is an inexpensive program to help meet the demand for teenagers wanting to drive fast but, best of all, it’s a way for families to use drag racing as a learning tool and a conduit for family bonding,” said Josh Peterson, NHRA vice president of racing administration.

Competitors in the NHRA Jr. Street program will go through an orientation/licensing procedure on an eighth-mile dragstrip in their vehicles, which must meet program requirements. Approved vehicles must be registered, insured, street-legal vehicles with mufflers and street tires and limited to 9 seconds and slower. 
NHRA Jr. Street is the latest program in NHRA’s youth racing segment that also includes the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League, NHRA Youth and Education Services, NHRA Drags: Street Legal Style presented by AAA and the NHRA Summit Racing Series.
