Following last weekend's NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series season opener at Division 2's Orlando FL's Speed World Dragway, the 2024 sportsman season kicks into high gear with a pair of events. Leading off is the Division 7 - West Region race at Phoenix's (Chandler, AZ) Firebird Motorsports Park, starting on Thursday, with two back-to-back divisional races, and a regional event sandwiched between them. That event followed by the Division 4 - Central Region race at Belle Rose, LA's No Problem Raceway.
The regional events will be the first chance for the Top Alcohol cars to work on their combinations before the national event opener at Gainesville Raceway's venerable Amalie Motor Oil Gatornationals, celebrating it's 55th year on the NHRA schedule. Before that event, the "Baby Gators" will happen on the weekend before the BIG Gators. All in all, it's three consecutive weekends of serious drag racing action to kick off the 2024 Mission Foods Drag Racing Series season.
After a one week break, the 21-event NHRA national event tour continues on the West Coast with the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals, the 63rd iteration of that (formerly) traditionally season-opening race. With the realignment of the NHRA schedule this year, it's now second on the calendar, after being third last year, but now first in the western part of the country. As always, we hope to have our intrepid photo ace, BIG Bob Snyder, on hand to capture all the action from the In-N-Out Burger Pomona Dragstrip.
