To help preserve NHRA’s rich history and tradition while capitalizing on the success of nostalgia drag racing competition, NHRA in 2009 formed the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series that today crowns year-end points champions in 14 categories.
The NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series points-earning events and non-points affiliate events. The Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series year-end points champions in each of the 14 classes will receive a gold Wally trophy; Champion’s jacket and hat; and a cash award.
The series’ 14 featured classes include: Nostalgia Top Fuel Dragster; Nostalgia Funny Car; Group 1 (A/Fuel, AA Supercharged, Jr. Fuel (same rules as the 2008 Jr. Fuel B class) and 7.0 Pro) and Group 2 (Nostalgia I, II and III; A, B, C and D/Gas and Hot Rod). The 7.0 Pro class is an index class with breakout rules – intended for front engine dragsters, center-steer Altereds and pre-1980 Nostalgia Funny Cars.
