Do You Want To Drive A 

Jr. Dragster or in the NHRA Jr. Street Class??


If you haven't seen a Jr. Dragster, then you haven't seen the future of NHRA Drag Racing ...

You can belong to the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League as either a non-driving MEMBER or a driver/PARTICIPANT. You don't have to race to be part of the scene.  The NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League offers kids ages 5-17 a chance to race half-scale dragsters in a controlled environment at many of NHRA's 130 member tracks throughout the United States and in Canada long before they can obtain a state driver's license. Membership in the Jr. Drag Racing League is required for competition.  


The cars that Jr. Drag Racing League competitors race are called Jr. Dragsters, and are half-scale versions of Top Fuel dragsters. Using a five-horsepower, single-cylinder engine, a Jr. Dragster can go as fast as 85 mph and as quick as 7.90 seconds in an eighth-mile, though younger age groups are restricted to slower times/speeds.   Many of NHRA's member tracks offer weekly Jr. Drag Racing League programs where kids can race to earn points toward track championships in their age group. The points leaders in each class are then chosen to represent their track at the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing Western or Eastern Conference Finals depending on the location of the track.

NHRA’S NEWEST YOUTH RACING SEGMENT...JR. STREET

NHRA introduced their new youth racing program for 13-16 year olds 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.

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.
