2019 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series Dates Announced

GLENDORA, Calif. --

The schedule for the 2019 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series was announced by series officials and will feature thrilling races across the country including the NHRA Motorsports Museum's Hot Rod Reunions. The entertaining series features intense racing action and is highlighted by the nitro burning Nostalgia Top Fuel Dragsters and Nostalgia Funny Cars.

The season roars to life at the 61st annual Good Vibrations March Meet, March 7-10 at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, Calif. The series will also make their annual visits to Sacramento Raceway, Firebird Raceway, Wild Horse Pass, Osage Tulsa Raceway, and both Top Fuel and Funny Car will be at the new event at Spokane County Raceway.

The series will be highlighted at two Hot Rod Reunions that are produced by the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum presented by Automobile Club of Southern California. The 17th annual Holley National Hot Rod Reunion presented by AAA Insurance at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Ky., is the first on the schedule slated for June 13-15 with Top Fuel and Funny Car competing for points in the series.

The 28th annual California Hot Rod Reunion presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California will conclude the series October 25-27 at Auto Club Famoso Raceway which will decide the championships in all the categories.

"We were thrilled to have the first season ending championship for all Heritage Series Classes in Bakersfield this year," said Larry Fisher, executive director of the Wally Parks Motorsports Museum. "We are looking forward to an exciting championship battle at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in 2019."

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.
