NHRA releases revised schedule, Atlanta Dragway not listed

By Brandon Reed Reporter

The NHRA has released revisions for the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule once racing resumes.

But that revised schedule does not include the Southern Nationals at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia.

According to a statement on, the series has been tentatively set to resume with the Gatornationals at Florida’s Gainesville Raceway.

“The revised schedule will consist of 19 total events, with 17 of those events being contested when the series resumes in June,” the statement read. “Six of these events will be condensed to two-day competition schedules for the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series classes due to economic and logistical factors.

“As a result of the compressed schedule, points will not be reset after the U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway. NHRA has held two make-up dates on the calendar in case there are further delays.”

The statement goes on to say that all NHRA sanctioned competition remains suspended until further notice.
