Summit Racing NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League FAQs

POSTED ON July 2nd  - POSTED IN Drag Strip, News

Can we combine the Youth category (6 and 7 year olds) with other age groups?

Yes, we recognize you may not have a large turnout of the other age groups and by combining the Youth category will assist in running the event, prizes, etc..

Is the Youth category able to participate in the 2014 Jr. Conference Finals?

No, however we are exploring the idea of adding the Youth category to the 2015 Jr. Conference Finals.

Can a competitor in the Trainee (5 year olds) and Youth category use any engine?

No, we have limited the engine for the Novice and Youth category to the Briggs and Stratton 206 (p/n: 124332 8201 01)

Is the license application applicable to only Novice and Youth categories?

No, the license application is applicable to all new competitors entering the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League.

How will our tech officials determine if the participant is using the correct slide valve?

Each slide valve is anodized. The approved slide valve for the Novice category is red (p/n: 555733) and the approved slide valve for the Youth category is blue (p/n: 555733).

Do the parents need to present anything to the track officials prior to making test runs?

Yes, the parent must present to the track official notarized waiver which is included in the application. Application can be downloaded from NHRARacer.com and the application must be printed in color. Link to application.

Who can sign off the test passes?

An adult with a current NHRA Competition license or qualified track official (for example starter, race director, tech official).

Do existing Jr. Participants need to go through the license application process?

Jr. participants with a current NHRA Jr. Competition license will not be required to go through the new application process. However; if you feel a participant would benefit from the new application process, this we would support your decision.

What is the reason for the license application process?

The NHRA wants to ensure the participant is given every opportunity to put their best foot forward when entering the sport. The application provides a cockpit orientation, basic driving test and track orientation to help overcome any concerns the participant may have about their first test pass. In addition, the NHRA considers this time an investment into the future of our sport. Without the process the participant may not overcome their fear and we all could lose a potential participant for the future.

Where do we send completed applications for processing?

NHRA; 2035 Financial Way, Glendora, CA; 91741; ATTN: NFO Dept

If I have questions who should I contact?

Please feel free to contact your respective Division Director, Eric Lotz, Brett Lyons or Josh Peterson

If the participant’s parents have a question who should I direct them to?

Hopefully this quick reference guide will help you address many of the questions you might receive, if not please feel free to direct them to your respective Division Director, Eric Lotz, Brett Lyon or Josh Peterson.

Where can I get the latest updates about the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League?

The NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League website and facebook page are the best sources of information about the series. In addition we encourage you visit www.NHRARacer.com periodically for any updates to competition procedures and rules.

The Briggs and Stratton website has a link to a dealer locator: http://www.briggsandstratton.com/engines-racing/support/dealerlocator. If anyone is having difficulties or has engine questions feel free to contact Briggs and Stratton directly at BriggsRacing@basco.com.

Can a participant use the Briggs and Stratton motor in other age groups?

Yes, during preliminary testing we have found by removing the slide valve the performance of the Briggs and Stratton 206 engine the engine will be competitive in the Novice category.

The application calls for six test passes; can we require them to do more if deemed necessary?

Yes, if you feel the participant will benefit from additional test passes you have the ability to require additional test passes.

NHRA Jr. Street

POSTED ON July 2nd  - POSTED IN Drag Strip, News

As many of you are aware, NHRA announced in March a new racing program for 13-16 year-olds 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 a couple weeks and several hundred votes later, Jr. Members and their families showed very strong support for Jr. Street.

Check out below the NHRA Jr. Street page which includes Rules and Application.
