NHRA GROUP 2 CHAMPIONSHIP MOVED TO CHRR
The California Hot Rod Reunion has been the championship race for NHRA’S Hot Rod Heritage Series Group 1 racers, but this year’s event (scheduled for Oct. 19-21) will decide the championship for the Group 2 competitors as well.
“We are very excited that the addition of Group 2 will make the CHRR a true championship event to close out the season for all who compete in the Hot Rod Heritage Series,” said Larry Fisher, executive director of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. “It’s an opportunity for champions in all classes to secure their titles in front of the many thousands of enthusiastic fans of nostalgia drag racing who gather for the California Hot Rod Reunion each year.”
Group 2, which includes Nostalgia Eliminator 1, NE 2, and NE 3; Gas classes A through D; and Hot Rod, will race at five events during the 2018 season, beginning at the March Meet at Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield. The group makes two stops at Sacramento Raceway in April and June separated by a trip to Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Phoenix in May. Check out nhramuseum.org for more info.
