NHRA Division 7 Drag Races THIS WEEKEND
The NHRA Division 7 Drag Races, presented by Korbel, return to Infineon Raceway, July 22-24 as more than 500 drag racers from the western United States compete on the Infineon Raceway quarter-mile drag strip.
The race is the fifth of six slated for the Pacific Division and will feature drag racing in nine categories. Competitors will battle for points leading to divisional and national championships, as well as a share of the year-end purse of more than $560,000.
The weekend will also be highlighted by the high-horsepower action of the West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Series, featuring full-bodied cars capable of covering the quarter mile in just six seconds. Nearly 20 entries, ranging from heavily-modified Corvettes to Studebakers, are expected for the series’ first visit to Infineon Raceway.
Gates open at 7 a.m. Friday and Saturday and at 8 a.m. on Sunday. Qualifying and time trials are slated Friday and Saturday, with final eliminations beginning on Saturday afternoon and continuing on Sunday at 8 a.m.
This event kicks off back-to-back weekends of NHRA drag racing in the Sonoma Valley, as the facility will host the FRAM Autolite NHRA Nationals, July 29-31. It will mark the 24th annual visit for the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series, which will be headlined by the sport’s biggest names, including John Force, Tony Schumacher, Robert Hight, Antron Brown and more.
