1/4 Mile Racing


Chrysler has rented the complete Fairplex Auto Club Raceway site which gives us access to the 1/4 mile drag strip.  NHRA will be running the racing event for us.  

UPDATED 3/3/2018:  We apologize for the delay in providing the details regarding signing up for the racing portion of the event.  The NHRA has still not provided us their written rules/regulations for this event, so we are presenting here the summarized rules as provided to us by Anthony @ LX and Beyond Nationals (another NHRA sanctioned track event - Thank you Anthony).  We do hope to update these rules with anything additional that the NHRA requires on Monday or Tuesday (3/5 or 3/6).
