GLENDORA, Calif. -- Anticipating a move by the National Football League (NFL) later this week to change the date of this year's Super Bowl to the first week in February, the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) has announced it will move the Winternationals to Feb. 7-10, 2002.

"This move expedites our original plans to move the date to the second week in February in 2004," said Tom Compton, president, NHRA, citing the NFL's announcement earlier this year to move the Super Bowl, beginning in 2004, to the first week in February.

"We were aware that the NFL would change, in 2004, the date of the Super Bowl to the first week in February," Compton added. "At that time we would be forced to change the date of the Winternationals to the second week in February. With the temporary move by the NFL to the first week in February in 2002, it made sense to make our change beginning next year."

The Winternationals has become a long-standing tradition in Southern California, marking the opening of the NHRA Drag Racing season. This year's race marks the 42nd return to the fabled Pomona Dragway at the Los Angeles County Fairplex. Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased by calling (800) 884-6472.

Headquartered in Glendora, Calif., the NHRA is the primary sanctioning body for the sport of drag racing in the United States. It presents 24 national events through its NHRA Winston Drag Racing Series. The NHRA has more than 80,000 members nationwide and more than 140 member tracks. The NHRA-sanctioned sportsman and bracket racing series' provide competition opportunities for drivers of all levels. The NHRA develops the stars of tomorrow by offering the NHRA Federal-Mogul Drag Racing Series, NHRA Summit Import Drag Racing Series, NHRA Summit Racing Series and the NHRA Street Legal Program. The NHRA also offers the NHRA Castrol GTX Jr. Drag Racing League for youths ages 8 to 17.
