2021 Conference Finals Participant Guidelines Announced
March 18, 2021

NHRA officials announced today revised participation guidelines for NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League competitors attending the Western Conference Finals on June 21-25 at Osage Tulsa Raceway Park and Eastern Conference Finals on July 15-17 at Bristol Dragway.


  • All active licensed NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Members are eligible to participate
  • Racers may participate in one or both conference finals events


  • Only NHRA Member Tracks from Divisions 1, 2, and 3 are eligible to submit TRACK TEAM rosters for the Eastern Conference Finals.
  • Only NHRA Member Tracks from Divisions 4, 5, 6, and 7 are eligible to submit TRACK TEAM rosters for the Western Conference Finals.
  • To be eligible for a TRACK TEAM roster, a competitor must have participated in a minimum of two Summit Jr. Drag Racing League Series events at that member track since A) the completion of the 2020 Conference Finals events and B) before the opening day of the 2021 Conference Finals event. Tracks found to violate this requirement may lose all points earned for all track teams submitted and may be subject to additional penalties.


While we always celebrate winning the Conference Finals events and representing your home track, attending the events is also about building friendships and relationships with fellow Summit Jr. Drag Racing League families from all across the country and, in some cases, around the world. While the COVID-19 pandemic has altered the racing schedules for many NHRA Member Tracks, we want all Summit Jr. Drag Racing League members to have the full experience of attending the Conference Finals events and being a part of the team atmosphere.

  • For 2021, Jr. Drag Racing League licensed competitors will still be eligible to participate in the Conference Finals events without being on a TRACK TEAM championship roster.
  • Competitors that did not qualify to be on an NHRA Member Track team roster will not be eligible to win the TRACK TEAM championship and trophies related to the team championship.
  • These competitors will be placed on a non-points earning team with team code “WP” for “Wally Parks” and encouraged to participate in all other team-related activities during the week.
