GLENDORA, Calif. - NHRA announced today that Sebring International Raceway will become a new member track. Sebring will join Division 2, the Southeast division of NHRA member tracks.

Sebring International Raceway, located in Sebring, Florida, is one of the oldest continuously operating racetracks in the United States, having held its first race in 1950. The track partially sits on Hendricks Army Airfield, which was used as a training base for B-17 pilots during World War ll.

"We have worked hard to create a fun and friendly environment that allows competitors to feel like family when visiting Sebring International Raceway," said Elizabeth Worley, Marketing Coordinator and Drag Racing Series Manager at Sebring International Raceway. "We strongly believe that having the backing of NHRA will allow us to continue to grow the program we have built. We look forward to the future of drag racing and competition at our track.

The track currently hosts Big Tire and Small Tire race events that take place on the front stretch of the famed track, best known for the Twelve Hours of Sebring. All future drag racing events will now be sanctioned by NHRA, the primary sanctioning body for drag racing in the United States.

"We are thrilled to welcome another track into the NHRA member track family," said Rich Schaefer, Division 2 Director. "Sebring International Raceway has such a rich motorsports history and they could not be a more perfect addition to the Division 2 track lineup."

The 2020 Air & Electric Services Sebring Drag Racing schedule will include 12 events, most of which will take place on Thursday nights. There will also be two high-prize-money weekends, the Sebring Battle at the Bridge and the Sebring Summer Showdown.

The complete 2020 schedule will be announced in the near future, with the first night of the season scheduled to kick off on April 16.
