The X-treme Drag Racing League (X-DRL) is opening pre-registration for the Pro Junior Dragster class this week-end for the X-DRL’s upcoming debut season in 2013.
The inaugural campaign for the eighth-mile sanctioning body begins on April 6-7 with the X-DRL Spring Nationals at Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park, and includes nine races at many of the nation’s top tracks.
Pre-registration for Pro Junior Dragster for the 2013 X-DRL season will begin at 10 a.m. EST on Jan. 26. The non-refundable entry fee is $250 per driver, per event, and must be pre-paid by check or credit card. Registration will not be confirmed until payment is received and cleared. A special offer is available to PJD teams signing-up for the entire 2013 X-DRL tour, including a free X-DRL t-shirt and a free 2013 X-DRL membership.
The X-DRL will accept 20 cars per event and will qualify a field of 16 cars based on closest to a 7.90 index without breaking-out. In addition, the X-DRL will closely follow a waiting list. In the event one of the initial 20 spots becomes available or vacated, the waiting list will be referred to in order to fill that spot.
The following is how the pre-registration process will work for PJD:
• Jan 26, at 10 a.m. (Eastern): Competitors who wish to race all nine events in the 2013 X-DRL tour should call Trevor Wilson, PJD Advisor, at (269) 719-0041.
• Jan 27, at 10 a.m. (Eastern): Competitors who wish to race a select number of events per their desire and choosing should call Trevor Wilson, PJD Advisor, at (269) 719-0041.
PJD registration will remain open the entire season and teams are required to call in advance to enter an event.
“The future of Junior Dragster competition on a professional level is the X-treme Drag Racing League,” X-DRL PJD Advisor Trevor Wilson said. “The X-DRL is thrilled to host an atmosphere that is both fun and safe for the nation’s top PJD teams.
Pro Junior Dragsters are scaled-down, rear-engine race cars piloted by drivers 13 to 18-years old and compete over the X-DRL’s standard eighth-mile race distance. In 2013, PJD will race under a 7.90 heads-up index on a .500 pro tee.
“The Pro Jr. Dragster’s are very important to X-DRL. These teams represent the future of our sport. We love watching our competitors grow as drivers and make the step-up to competing in one of our other professional classes.”
