JR Race Car, IHRA Celebrate Milestones Through Partnership

Thursday, 12 October 2017

JR Race Car and the International Hot Rod Association Junior Dragster division both turned 25 years old this season. The two partners will celebrate their silver anniversaries with one of the IHRA’s most popular championship awards.

The JR Race Car junior dragster is awarded to the series’ champion at the IHRA Summit World Finals, Oct. 19-21 at Memphis International Raceway. Photos of the chassis and body were released today. The completed car with a new design will be unveiled at a special ceremony at the IHRA Summit World Finals on Friday, Oct. 20.

JR Race Car is a manufacturer of Junior Dragsters and parts, and the title sponsor of the IHRA JR Race Car Junior Dragster program in the Summit SuperSeries. This will be the fourth straight year that JR Race Car will provide a custom-built car to the Summit SuperSeries Junior Dragster National Champion.

“It is exciting that everyone wants to win and be awarded the car, and we’re the ones able to build it for them,” JR Race Car Sales Manager Kevin Horner said. “With the custom paint job and everything on it, the detailing we put into it, that makes it perfect for a championship car. It’s always special for us how everyone has their eyes on it. When someone takes that car home, it’s special for all of us.”

The JR Race Car Junior Dragster division provides safe, sanctioned competition for young racers between the ages of seven and 17, and an opportunity for the whole family to get involved.

Founded in 1992, JR Race Car began manufacturing parts for the new Junior Drag Racing program. The company initially offered components such as turn-key Junior Dragster chassis, engines, clutches and chassis components which JR Race Car manufactured in-house from the beginning.

For more than two decades, JR Race Car has led the way in Junior Dragster manufacturing from initially machining a large portion of the CNC parts for other vendors in the market to designing and machining its own ZR, Titan and ZR4 Engines and revolutionizing the market with the Shockwave and Shockwave OD CVT (centrifugally variable transmission) clutches and the innovative Hercules Chassis.
