Because of the impact of rain on the facility this week, and forecasted additional rain, NHRA and Houston Raceway Park have made the difficult decision to cancel racing action on Friday at the NHRA SpringNationals, moving the event to a two-day race.
On-track activity is cancelled on Friday, May 21, with all the action packed into Saturday and Sunday. The NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series will have two qualifying sessions on Saturday, May 22, before race day on Sunday, May 23.
“We are making a proactive decision to cancel Friday in order to give fans the experience they expect from a Houston Raceway Park on Saturday and Sunday,” said Seth Angel, Houston Raceway Park General Manager. “We have taken on a lot of rain over the past week and we will need the extra day to prepare the entire facility, including the dragstrip, pit areas and spectator parking.”
Friday ticket holders can use the value of their paid tickets as credit toward Saturday and Sunday of this weekend or the value can be transferred to the 2022 SpringNationals.
