NHRA Shortens Its 2020 Season From 24 To 19 Events; Cancels Its Playoffs

The NHRA announced Wednesday that it will resume its 2020 schedule June 5-7 with the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway.

Because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the season will be shortened from an original slate of 24 events to 19 races, and the points won’t be reset for the Countdown to the Championship playoffs after the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis.

The championship finale will be Nov. 13-15 in the Auto Club Finals at Pomona, California.

The NHRA completed its first two events at Pomona and Chandler, Arizona. Of the remaining 17 events, six will be condensed to two-day shows. The calendar has two makeup dates for further delays.

All other NHRA-sanctioned drag racing (beyond the national level) remains suspended until further notice.
