INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—Lucas Oil Raceway will add the Jr. Street class to each of the 12 bracket races on the 2020 schedule.
Considered a steppingstone for teenagers, the NHRA Jr. Street program allows 13-16-year-olds to compete against their peers in full-body street vehicles with an adult co-driver as their teammate. Competitors in the NHRA Jr. Street program go through an orientation/licensing procedure on an eighth-mile dragstrip in their vehicles, which must meet program requirements. Approved vehicles must be registered, insured, street-legal vehicles with mufflers and street tires and limited to nine seconds and slower.
Jr. Street licensing requires that drivers submit medical and birth certificates. From there, the driver must make six runs, five with the guardian or parent and the last one with the race director.
For more information on the Jr. Street program, contact Lucas Oil Raceway at (317) 969-8600. The full 2020 Lucas Oil Raceway schedule can be found HERE.
