Since 2004, NHRA Summit Racing Series Jr. Drag Racing League competitors have flocked to Bristol Dragway in search of glory and prestigious Wally. That will continue July 14-16 when the Tennessee track hosts the 2022 Right Trailers NHRA Jr. Drag Racing Eastern Conference Finals presented by Mike Bos Racing.
The event gives drivers the opportunity to win a full-size Wally in individual competition in eight age groups: 6-9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16-17. There is also a team competition for drivers on team rosters from tracks in Divisions 1, 2, and 3. A small Wally is awarded to each driver on the winning team. Though only racers from tracks in Divisions 1, 2, and 3 are eligible for the team championship, all Jr. Dragster drivers are eligible to compete in the event and vie for individual titles.
The Eastern Conference Finals will be the culmination of a full week of racing at Bristol Dragway. Competition begins on July 8 with the Mike Bos Chassis Craft Jr. Dragster Nationals, which runs through July 10. July 11-13 will feature the Mike Bos Chassis Craft Fun Races, leading into the Eastern Conference Finals July 14-16.
Camden Teel (age 6-9), Ava Smith (10), Ava Ward (11), Morgan Harp (12), Phillip Radford (13), Gage Wilson (14), Ian Burt (15), Gage Rachford (16-17), and Atlanta Dragway (Team) are the defending champions of the event.
