Four new Member Tracks join NHRA family
The National Hot Rod Association has signed membership agreements with four drag racing facilities, it was announced June 6. The tracks, in NHRA's Southeast, South Central, and West Central Divisions, will join the ranks of NHRA's other 130-plus member tracks.
The new facilities joining NHRA's member track program are U.S. 43 Raceway Park in Ethridge, Tenn., located about 60 miles southeast of Nashville, Tenn.; and Grove Creek Raceway, in Grove City, Minn., approximately 75 miles west of Minneapolis. The other two tracks are in Texas: Denton Dragway, 30 miles north of Dallas, and Navasota Raceway, 60 miles northwest of Houston.
"NHRA is always happy to welcome new member tracks," said NHRA President Tom Compton, "It's another sign that NHRA drag racing continues to expand across the country. We look forward to working with these tracks to bring NHRA racing to their racers and fans."
All four facilities feature eighth-mile drag strips. Each track will participate in NHRA's Summit Racing Series, and U.S. 43 Dragway, Grove Creek Raceway and Denton Dragway will also host the NHRA Castrol GTX Jr. Drag Racing League. The NHRA Summit Racing Series offers racers of all skill levels and budgets an opportunity to run for a national championship, while the NHRA Castrol GTX Jr. Drag Racing League allows kids the opportunity to experience the thrill of drag racing in half-scale dragsters.
