GLENDORA, Calif. --

NHRA officials announced the 2015 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series schedule, headlined by the Nostalgia Top Fuel and Nostalgia Funny Car categories.

Entering its eighth season, the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series features Nostalgia Funny Cars and Dragsters and has become a fan-favorite among drag racing enthusiasts across the country with classes for front engine dragsters, altereds and gassers.

The famed March Meet kicks off the season March 5-8 at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, Calif., followed by The Nostalgia Reunion at Sacramento (Calif.) Raceway, in early April. The first of two stops at Firebird Raceway in Boise, Idaho, the NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor, will follow.

The series benefits the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum presented by Automobile Club of Southern California through a trio of Hot Rod Reunions that are produced by the Museum. The Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Ky., is the first on the schedule slated for June 18-20 and will be followed by the New England Hot Rod Reunion, at Epping, N.H., Aug. 28-30. The popular California Hot Rod Reunion presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California will conclude the series, Oct. 23-25 at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield.

"The NHRA Motorsports Museum is proud once again to have our three Hot Rod Reunions be a part of the NHRA Heritage Series," said Larry Fisher, executive director of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. "The Hot Rod Reunions and the Heritage Series are just one of the ways that the NHRA Motorsports Museum and NHRA work with you to preserve and celebrate the story of American Hot Rodding. By being a part of the Reunions, racers and spectators alike help us share this uniquely American story with future generations."

The series returns to Rocky Mountain Raceways in early June with a Funny Car only event at Mission Raceway Park in July for its third year on the schedule before the series heads back to Firebird for its Nightfire Nationals event that features both the Top Fuel and Funny Car categories in August.

The NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series consists of two nitro categories -- Nostalgia Top Fuel dragster and Nostalgia Funny Car -- and two groups of additional classes. Group 1 includes A/Fuel, Jr. Fuel, and 7.0 Eliminator, and Group 2 includes Nostalgia Eliminator I, Nostalgia Eliminator II, Nostalgia Eliminator III, A/Gas, B/Gas, C/Gas, D/Gas, and Hot Rod eliminator. Racers in each class will run a combination of events at which they will score points toward the championships.

The NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series was developed in 2008 to help preserve NHRA's rich history and tradition while providing racing opportunities for those enthusiasts who enjoy nostalgia drag racing competition.
