JR DRAGSTER SERIES

What is JDRL (Jr Drag Racing League)?

The NHRA Jr Drag Racing League offers kids ages 5-17 a chance to race half-scale dragsters in a controlled environment. If you haven't seen a Jr Dragster, then you haven't seen the future of NHRA drag racing.

The Western event features racers from all tracks in Divisions 4, 5, 6 and 7. The Eastern event features racers from all tracks in Divisions 1, 2 and 3. Each NHRA member track may send an unlimited number of teams of 10 racers to the event. The event awards a Wally and prize money to the winner in each of the eight age categories -- 6-9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16-17 -- and a Wally to each member of the winning team.

A special-event program for NHRA Member Tracks and their E.T. bracket racers. With member tracks across the country as well as in Canada and Puerto Rico, the program will recognize and award grassroots racers with a unique, specially designed NHRA State Championships Wally plaque.

Much like state high school athletic associations that conduct state championships in school sporting events, NHRA will designate and recognize one rotating annual event per state that boasts NHRA member tracks as the official NHRA Drag Racing State Championships.

E.T. bracket categories that are part of the NHRA Summit Racing Series and a Jr. Dragster class contested in the state and NHRA geographic division will receive official NHRA State Championships designation.
