ATTENTION ALL JUNIOR DRAGSTER RACERS
We have adjusted our Junior points race schedule at Eddyville Raceway Park so as to not conflict with the announcement of the dates for the Junior Dragster Western Conference Finals in Denver, CO and the Division 5 Junior Dragster event at Mid America Motorplex in Pacific Junction Iowa. The Jr class will not be run at ERP on June 29 (WCF) or on July 27 (Div.5 race). I would highly encourage our Junior racers to support these events. The experience of the Nationals in Denver is something all Junior racers should have. I would recommend working together with other Junior Dragster racers to make attending the Nationals as affordable as possible by combining race cars into several trailers rather than all racers hauling their own.
We are also still looking for some feedback on ideas you might have for changes to our Junior Dragster program to help build participation at ERP. I believe the announcement from NHRA about the new Junior engine is a step in the right direction but more things can be done. Please call me (Gerald) at 641-780-3534 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also want to thank TrickTools.com for again sponsoring the class and to Laffoon and Company for their continued support of the class with the Reaction Time contest and more.
ERP will have a special Junior event on June 15 and 16, and will be called the Junior Dragster Hawkeye Nationals. This will be a race that will include big cars and our Street Bike series. On Saturday we will have 4-age groups with the winners of each class winning a NHRA Jr Dragster Challenge Wally. We will have a run off of the 4-age group winners for a very special award TBA. Saturday we will also have a pit vehicle race at the end of the day. On Sunday we will have a bracket class and 3 index classes. Then on October 4,5,& 6 the annual Junior Dragster Halloween Nationals return to Eddyville for 3 days of Junior only racing.
