GLENDORA, CA – September 4, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – For the first time in four seasons, the NHRA will host a specialty race amongst the stars of the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series nitro categories. Fans will be treated to two NHRA Allstar Shootout events in 2022, at the AMALIE Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, March 10-13, and the prestigious Dodge//SRT NHRA U.S. Nationals, Aug. 31 – Sept. 5.
The NHRA Allstar Shootout events will feature competition amongst the top eight NHRA Top Fuel and Funny Car drivers in the world. The shootout will utilize a call out format with the No. 1 seed getting their first choice of opponent. This unique format will deliver thrilling racing action from the stars of the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.
The first shootout of the season will be the Top Fuel NHRA Allstar Shootout at the 53rd annual AMALIE Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, in Gainesville on Saturday, March 12. The eight-car field will be set based on a combination of season end and qualifying points at the 2022 Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals and NHRA Arizona Nationals.
The Funny Car class will have their Funny Car NHRA Allstar Shootout at the 68th Dodge//SRT NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis on Sunday, Sept. 4. Drivers will gain points towards the shootout from the 2021 Dodge//SRT NHRA U.S. Nationals until the event before the 2022 Indianapolis event.
“We are so thrilled for these two shootout events,” said NHRA President, Glen Cromwell. “Our drivers are intense competitors, and these two races will add some extra excitement to our already thrilling NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.”
