NHRA Postpones Season for at Least 30 Days
NHRA PRESS RELEASE ON THE CORONAVIRUS….
At this time we are suspending all NHRA drag racing for thirty days in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
This suspension includes events at all NHRA-owned tracks and any NHRA-sanctioned events such as the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series and the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, as well as National opens, Super Quicks and the Hot Rod Heritage Series. As to National Events, we intend at this time to resume the original schedule on April 17-19 in Houston, and continue thereafter, subject to developments in the interim. The spring Las Vegas event is postponed with new dates TBD.
Please monitor NHRARacer.com for information regarding any event affected during the suspension as it relates to rescheduling, registration and credentials.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely, to listen to experts, and to be transparent as to when we believe we will be able to resume racing.
We made this decision with heavy hearts as we see the effects this pandemic is having on the world, the country and our NHRA family. We believe this is the right decision since social distancing and reducing gatherings of people has been recommended as one of the most effective ways to protect everyone in the long run.
We are all in this complicated, uncertain and rapidly changing situation together, and we encourage everyone to look out for each other. Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones. We encourage you to consult www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html for information and updates.
We look forward to the time when we all come together again in person to celebrate the most extreme sport on the planet. Though we will have to be physically apart we encourage you to stay connected with the community through NHRA.com, and all of our social channels, on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. NHRA.TV and National DRAGSTER will continue to deliver drag racing content for you.
