NHRA officials have announced the postponement of the 61st annual Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, CA, originally scheduled for April 9-11. Auto Club Raceway is currently serving as a COVID-19 vaccination site, allowing locals to drive through the facility and receive their vaccination.

NHRA and track officials will continue to look to state and federal health officials for recommendations to host events in the state. A new date for the event is TBD. 

“We are confident we will find a new date for the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals,” NHRA Vice President of Track Management & Operations Kasey Coler said. “We are working closely with California health officials to come to an agreement as to the best dates for the event.”

The NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season kicked off with a successful race at the AmalieMotor Oil NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville. The season will continue racing action at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, April 16-18.
