NHRA GROUP 2 CHAM­PI­ONSHIP MOVED TO CHRR

Hot Rod Deluxe - - Roddin’ @ Random -

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.
