NHRA Summit Racing Drag Racing League Frequently Asked Questions
Page 1
1. Can we combine the Youth category (6 and 7 year olds) with other age groups?
Yes, we recognize you may not have a large turnout of the other age groups and by combining the Youth category will assist in running the event, prizes, etc..
2. Is the Youth category able to participate in the 2014 Jr. Conference Finals?
No, however we are exploring the idea of adding the Youth category to the 2015 Jr. Conference Finals.
3. Can a competitor in the Trainee (5 year olds) and Youth category use any engine?
No, we have limited the engine for the Novice and Youth category to the Briggs and Stratton 206 (p/n: 124332 8201 01)
4. Is the license application applicable to only Novice and Youth categories?
No, the license application is applicable to all new competitors entering the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League.
5. How will our tech officials determine if the participant is using the correct slide valve?
Each slide valve is anodized. The approved slide valve for the Novice category is red (p/n: 555733) and the approved slide valve for the Youth category is blue (p/n: 555733).
6. Do the parents need to present anything to the track officials prior to making test runs?
Yes, the parent must present to the track official notarized waiver which is included in the application. Application can be downloaded from NHRARacer.com and the application must be printed in color. Link to application.
7. Who can sign off the test passes?
An adult with a current NHRA Competition license or qualified track official (for example starter, race director, tech official).
8. Do existing Jr. Participants need to go through the license application process?
Jr. participants with a current NHRA Jr. Competition license will not be required to go through the new application process. However; if you feel a participant would benefit from the new application process, this we would support your decision.
9. What is the reason for the license application process?
The NHRA wants to ensure the participant is given every opportunity to put their best foot forward when entering the sport. The application provides a cockpit orientation, basic driving test and track orientation to help overcome any concerns the participant may have about their first test pass. In addition, the NHRA considers this time an investment into the future of our sport. Without the process the participant may not overcome their fear and we all could lose a potential participant for the future.
10. Where do we send completed applications for processing?
NHRA; 2035 Financial Way, Glendora, CA; 91741; ATTN: NFO Dept
