For Immediate Release 

(Tuesday, December 10, 2019) Irwindale, CA – Irwindale Dragstrip is pleased to announce that Junior Dragsters will return in 2020. The division, which has produced NHRA champions such as J.R. Todd and Erica Enders, is a high priority for Irwindale Dragstrip in 2020. “The Junior Dragster division is instrumental to this race track as we seek to help develop the next generation of drag racer.” says I.D. President Tim Huddleston.

The 2019 season saw three drivers rise to the top, as Morgan Buchanan (13-17 Div.), Sean Kelly (10-12 Div.), and Christian Lapierre (6-9 Div.) took home championships at Irwindale Dragstrip. 2020 will see the same three age-based divisions competing for championships at Irwindale Dragstrip. The four race series will feature a “Best 3 out of 4” format, where competitors will see their final points compromised of their best 3 finishes. The format is used widely across the country as it allows for a flexible, yet highly competitive, championship series. The 2020 I.D. Jr. Dragster Series will officially compete on Sundays, but with an added twist in play for Saturdays. Teams will have the opportunity to compete in a “Saturday Gambler” the day before points events. “We hope this will serve as both an opportunity to increase track time, and as a fun addition to our Saturday Drags program” says Huddleston.

First up for Irwindale Dragstrip and Jr. Drags will be the 2020 Pacific Division Jr. Championship Series Event on January 18-19, 2020. The Irwindale Dragstrip Jr. Dragster Series schedule will be as follows:

-April 4-5

-June 6-7

-July 11-12

-August 1-2
