After a one year hiatus, the NHRA Junior Drag Racing League Eastern Conference Finals Pres. By Mike Bos Chassis Craft returns to Bristol Dragway, July 11-16, 2022! Thunder Valley hosts the future of drag racing during the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Eastern Conference Finals.

Aspiring drag racers, ages 6-17, from across the country will come to Bristol hoping to hone their skills on the national stage. A future NHRA World Champion may get the first national event win of his or her career in Thunder Valley.

Add the Mike Bos Chassis Craft Jr. Dragster Nationals and Mike Bos Chassis Craft Fun Races occurring during the days leading in to the Eastern Conference Finals and this becomes one of the greatest weeks of Jr. Dragster racing anywhere, attracting racers from across the East Coast and abroad.

Bristol Dragway has played host to the Eastern Conference Finals since 2004. Competitors race for individual and team honors at the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Eastern Conference Finals. The event awards a Wally and a cash prize to the winner in each of the eight age categories: 6-9, 10, 11,12, 13, 14, 15, 16-17 — and a Wally to each member of the winning team.


Each NHRA member track can send an unlimited number of teams of 10 drivers each. Each track does not have to send a full team(s). A track may send as few as one driver, and the last team you put together does not have to be full

For example, if a track has 16 drivers who have committed to attend as part of their team, the track’s first team would include 10 drivers, and the second would include six drivers. All drivers on individual track teams will race one another when it is no longer possible to keep them separated.
