What’s Changed?


  • Virginia Nationals


  • Englishtown Summernationals

One change of venue, the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown dropped its date. It was hurriedly replaced with a new event at Virginia Motorsports Park.

Other than that it is all very consistent when you compare with 2017. A couple of dates swapped around, including the second visit to zMAX dragway moving from September to October.

European Drag Racing

I also have a calendar for the FIA European Drag Racing series.
