GLENDORA, Calif. --
The NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway, scheduled for Aug.
28-30, has been canceled due the current COVID-19 pandemic. NHRA made this difficult decision after
exhaustive deliberation with track representatives, health officials and government authorities.
NHRA and Atlanta Dragway came to this conclusion after carefully weighing the significance of the
40th anniversary of the NHRA Southern Nationals. The anniversary of the historic race will be
celebrated in 2021.
"It is with great regret that we announce the cancellation of the NHRA Southern Nationals at
Atlanta Dragway," said Kasey Coler, vice president of track management and operations. This tough
decision was made following numerous discussions with our stakeholders regarding the ability to
host and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the race. Unfortunately, under the current
circumstances, we would not be able to provide the event a proper platform to honor and celebrate
this historic anniversary."
Event ticket holders will receive more information from NHRA via email soon and are encouraged to
