Schedule Adjusted For NHRA Virginia Nationals

DINWIDDIE, Va. – NHRA officials have announced a schedule change for the upcoming Virginia NHRA Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park.

All three qualifying sessions in the NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series will now take place on Saturday, June 22, leading into eliminations the following day – marking a change from a three-day format to a condensed, two-day format.

The two-day NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series event will feature three qualifying sessions on the same day in the professional categories (Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle) for the first time, prior to Sunday eliminations at the ninth of 20 races during the season.

Official times for Saturday’s three qualifying sessions and Sunday’s first round of eliminations will be released next week.

NHRA worked closely with the race teams to help offer a new experience for the fans at the Virginia event.

Racing action in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, featuring some of the sport’s top drivers, will begin on Friday, June 21.

This year’s Virginia NHRA Nationals marks the first NHRA race at the standout facility since 2022. Fans at Virginia Motorsports Park, regarded as one of the quickest and fastest tracks on the NHRA circuit, will also see the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge during the last two qualifying sessions.

The Challenge is a unique bonus event that brings competitive racing to Saturday and offers a bonus purse and bonus championship points.

Brittany Force (Top Fuel), Robert Hight (Funny Car) and Matt Smith (Pro Stock Motorcycle) won during NHRA’s last appearance at Virginia Motorsports Park.
