The Southwest Heritage Racing Association is starting a new concept in the promotion of nostalgia drag racing in the southwest and the Texas Blown Fuel Association is in full support of this new concept. So much so, TBFA has asked SHRA to begin the operation of its events in the 2013 racing season. Following suit, the Outlaw Junior Fuel Association set to debut in 2013 has also joined the SHRA series. The TBFA and OJFA programs fits directly into what the SHRA is hosting with their Nostalgia Eliminator classes and the series' becoming one entity will prove a progressive step forward.

"In the advancement of the Texas Blown Fuel Association and the belief it will strengthen the nostalgia drag racing scene in this region, we feel this is a step to take our effort to the next level. We highly anticipate the 2013 season and look forward to bigger and better things in the future with the Southwest Heritage Racing Association," said TBFA President Rick Grindstaff. The same can be said from OJFA President Rick Huckabee.

What originally was to be a three race debut season for the SHRA has now developed into a six race Nostalgia Eliminator series, with stops at North Star Dragway, Texas Motorplex, Little River Dragway and Ardmore Dragway. The Spring, Summer and Fall Nationals will be held at North Star Dragway in Denton, Texas and feature the full SHRA series including bracket classes and junior dragsters. The SHRA Nostalgia Eliminator I, II, III classes will showcase their talents at the Texas Motorplex's "Old School Showdown" on April 20th in conjunction with the NHRA Division 4 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event. The same Nostalgia Eliminator classes will also be featured June 1st at Little River Raceway in Temple, Texas and included in the line-up for the 2013 Ardmore Hot Rod Reunion in Ardmore, Oklahoma on August 31st.

2013 SHRA Schedule: 

April 6 - North Star Dragway - Denton, TX
*April 20 - Texas Motorplex - Ennis, TX
*June 1 - Little River Dragway - Temple, TX
July 6 - North Star Dragway - Denton, TX
*August 31 - Ardmore Dragway - Ardmore, OK

Working together with like goals in mind, the SHRA can now carry a firm support group forward and is in high anticipation of what the future will hold. The nostalgia eliminator classes will allow blown, injected and carbureted front engine dragsters, altered and funny cars to compete at a performance level of their choice in an economic fashion, that in turn produces stronger car counts and more entertainment for the nostalgia drag racing fans of the southwest. With a six race program confirmed, the SHRA series is dedicated to bringing the best in old school drag racing entertainment to the participating tracks in 2013, we'll see you at the drags!
