NHRA announces yet another revised schedule to finish 2020 season

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The NHRA announced another revised schedule to complete the 2020 season. The drag racing governing body plans to finish the season with six more races.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the sport has been devastated with many races being removed to the school. However, after nearly five months on the sidelines, the sport came back in July.

Now, the sport will continue through the end of October, barring anymore chances due to the virus.

“We are grateful to the loyal NHRA fans, who have stuck with us during these trying times,” NHRA President Glen Cromwell said. “NHRA plans to hold these next six national events to conclude the 2020 season. Thank you to our fans, racers, and partners for your continued support and cooperation.”

The remaining events are as follows:

  • Denso Spark Plugs NHRA U.S. Nationals, Indianapolis (Sept. 3-6)
  • Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, Gainesville, Florida (Sept. 25-27)
  • Mopar Express Lane NHRA Midwest Nationals presented by Pennzoil, St. Louis (Oct. 2-4)
  • AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, Dallas (Oct. 14-18)
  • Mopar Express Lane NHRA SpringNationals presented by Pennzoil, Houston (Oct. 23-25)
  • Dodge NHRA Finals presented by Pennzoil, Las Vegas (Oct. 30-Nov. 1)

With this announcement, the NHRA also said that previously “postponed” events have now been canceled. They will not take place until the 2021 season now.

Those are the following:

  • Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil, Denver
  • Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals, Brainerd
  • Menards NHRA Heartland Nationals presented by Minties, Topeka

Due to scheduling conflicts, the NHRA also had to cancel additional races. For months, the Fairgrounds, where Pomona is located, announced that no events would take place through January 1, 2021.

Those are as follows:

  • NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, Charlotte
  • NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, Bristol
  • Auto Club NHRA Finals, Pomona
