The Southwest Heritage Racing Association will debut in 2013 at North Star Dragway in Denton, Texas. The S.H.R.A. will host three events in it's inaugural season to introduce the series with intentions of continuing into 2014 with a six to eight race points series with a year end points fund for all classes.

The S.H.R.A. is an organization of drag racing enthusiasts dedicated to preserving the longevity of nostalgia style drag racing in the Southwest. The S.H.R.A. Racing Series includes nostalgia style racing machines with modern safety equipment and specifications. The series includes everything from blown and injected front engine dragsters and altereds to pre-1979 door car and gasser racing. Three index classes and two bracket classes will be in action at every event and the series is proud to also include the junior dragster classes, as we aim to expose the next generation of drag racers to the old school approach to hot rodding.

"We see the success of this approach to nostalgia racing in other areas, yet there is nothing like that here in the Southwest. This approach appeals to the masses and economically makes sense to both a racer and a track owner. With the executive committee that has been put in place, I believe the S.H.R.A. Series is in great hands and will prove to be the future of grass roots nostalgia style drag racing in this area. We are proud to be involved and look forward to kick-starting this series at North Star Dragway," said NSD owner Gene Nicodemus.

April 6 - S.H.R.A. Spring Nationals - North Star Dragway
July 6th - S.H.R.A. Summer Nationals - North Star Dragway

In 2013, the S.H.R.A. will race in conjunction with the Painless Performance Outlaw Fuel Altered Association on three dates at North Star Dragway: April 6th, July 6th and October 5th. With a wide range of classes and simplified rules system, the S.H.R.A. aims to provide both participants and spectators with an entertaining venue to keep the old school traditional style of drag racing alive! The S.H.R.A. series is currently seeking marketing partners. We look forward to seeing you at the strip! For more information, visit us online at
