The race-within-a-race program for NHRA's Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series competitors is the NHRA JEGS Allstars.
The best racers in ten categories from each of NHRA's seven geographic regions compete for team and individual honors and a share of the $124,000 purse. Racers accumulate points for the event at NHRA Lucas Oil divisional races prior to the competition.
The winning team splits $20,000. The winners in Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car each earn $7,000; in Comp and Super Stock, $6,000 each; Top Sportsman and Top Dragster, $5000 each; and in Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, and Super Street, $4,500 each.
Runners-up in all categories receive $2,000. A travel fund of $25,000 is included in the purse.
The long-term partnership includes the continuation of the longtime JEGS Allstars and JEGS SPORTSnationals, two popular events for racers on the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series circuit. It was also announced that the JEGS Allstars will move to the famed Texas Motorplex for the first time as part of the track’s Stampede for Speed and the Texas NHRA FallNationals on Oct. 12-15 in Dallas.
“The JEGS Allstars gives these racers a huge spotlight on a unique stage, and we’re excited to see this great event move to Texas Motorplex as part of the Texas NHRA FallNationals,” JEGS Vice President of Marketing Ralph Mondeaux said. “JEGS is committed to the racers on and off the track and making this great event better each year remains a major priority. By having it in Dallas as part of the track’s Stampede of Speed, it adds another standout addition to the event, and we know all the racers competing at the JEGS Allstars are looking forward to racing for team and individual titles at Texas Motorplex.”
Celebrating its 38th year in 2022, the JEGS Allstars competition is one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year for the standout drivers in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. The unique event crowns individual champions in 10 separate eliminators, in addition to the overall team title. Racers can only qualify for the prestigious event by earning points in their home divisions during year-long battles in the following categories — Top Alcohol Dragster, Top Alcohol Funny Car, Competition, Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, Super Street, Top Dragster and Top Sportsman.
The JEGS Allstars brings out the best from across NHRA’s seven geographic divisions for the special race, including competitors from all 50 states and internationally. Winning the legacy-building and prestigious race is a lifetime goal for all racers in the circuit and also adds another marquee, must-see event to the Texas NHRA FallNationals at the Texas Motorplex and their 10-day Stampede of Speed festival.
“Bringing the JEGS Allstars to the Texas NHRA FallNationals is a great addition to the Stampede of Speed,” Texas Motorplex Co-Owner Christie Meyer Johnson said. “Having so many of the top regional drivers and teams from all over the country come to Texas for this premier event will be amazing. We are excited to be highlighting some of the best driver talent in the country.”
