The NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series schedule has received a major makeover. Two brand new venues have been added to the series and an extra event promises to provide fans with plenty of great excitement. These are just two of the highlights that are bound to make the 2009 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series a massive success.
The exciting NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series was developed by the NHRA in 2007 as part of efforts to preserve the NHRA’s rich racing history and tradition. It also provided drivers with a penchant for nostalgia drag racing with a new opportunity to test their golden oldies against other antique vehicles. While it is still relatively new, it seems that it continues to grow steadily in popularity. The 2009 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series will now feature as many as eight points-earning events as well as four non-points affiliate events. By the end of the year as many as fourteen points champions will be crowned – one in each category. The prize for this massive accomplishment will be a cash award, a gold Wally trophy and a champion’s jacket and hat. The NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series is certainly worth participating in and you can be sure that the competition will be stiffer than ever in 2009.
Peter Clifford, who acts as the NHRA executive vice president as well as the general manager, said: “We are looking forward to another exciting season of the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series. We have made an adjustment to our class structure this year and added two new venues. These changes should increase the popularity of a series that was well-received by fans, competitors and track operators alike in its inaugural season.” Fans can look forward to the season kicking off on March 7-9 at the track in Bakersfield, California. From there the series will travel to, among other places, the Firebird Raceway in Boise (Idaho), the Auto Club Dragway in Fontana (California) and The Strip at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway before the series concludes back where it started with the California Hot Rod Reunion on October 16-18. Make sure that you don’t miss out on this year’s Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series!
