Wally Parks Team Roster Registration: (no track eligibility)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. But we want all Summit Jr Drag Racing League members to have the whole experience of attending the conference finals events and being a part of the team atmosphere.

  • 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.
