GLENDORA, Calif. --
The NHRA Jr. Drag Racing Western Conference Finals will visit Oklahoma's Osage Tulsa Raceway Park for the first time, June 23-25, while the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing Eastern Conference Finals will return to Eastern Tennessee's famed Thunder Valley, July 21-23.
"The future stars of NHRA Drag Racing are showcased at these two events and we are pleased to have these two exceptional facilities as host tracks," said Eric Lotz, director of field marketing, NHRA. "Both are rich in drag racing history and are excited to be a part of the NHRA Summit Jr. Drag Racing League."
In 2016, both tracks will also be hosting activities and events throughout each of their respective events earlier in the week leading up to the Conference Finals.
Bristol Dragway has played host to the Eastern Conference Finals since 2004 and Osage Tulsa Raceway Park acquired the Western Conference Finals from Utah's Rocky Mountain Raceways, which hosted the event the last two seasons.
Osage Tulsa Raceway Park owners Todd Martin and Keith Haney are highly optimistic about growing this event and have already reached out to the City of Tulsa and the surrounding communities. "To have the opportunity to host such an event is an honor and we are looking forward showing the fans in the Tulsa area what the future of Drag Racing looks like," said Martin.
Created in 1992, the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League allows kids between the ages of 5 and 17 to experience the thrill of motorsports competition in a controlled environment at tracks in each of NHRA's seven geographic divisions. The NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League creates family involvement in drag racing at an affordable level. Many of the league's former participants have gone on to compete in other NHRA classes. Top Fuel racer Shawn Langdon (the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Series Top Fuel world champion and a two-time Super Comp national champion in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series) and two-time and defending NHRA Pro Stock world champion Erica Enders, are among the league's most accomplished graduates.
