Bracket Drag Racing Series Rules & Regulations
Junior street will run on Fridays of the 2021 Bracket Drag Racing Series!
NHRA introduced their new youth racing program for 13-16 year olds that will give teenage boys and girls the opportunity to race against their peers in full-bodied street vehicles with an adult co-driver as their teammate that combines racing and car safety.
This is an inexpensive program to help meet the demand for teenagers wanting to drive fast but, best of all, it’s a way for families to use drag racing as a learning tool and a conduit for family bonding,” said Josh Peterson, NHRA vice president of racing administration.
Competitors in the NHRA Jr. Street program will go through an orientation/licensing procedure on an eighth-mile dragstrip in their vehicles, which must meet program requirements. Approved vehicles must be registered, insured, street-legal vehicles with mufflers and street tires and limited to 9 seconds and slower.
NHRA Jr. Street is the latest program in NHRA’s youth racing segment that also includes the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League, NHRA Youth and Education Services, NHRA Drags: Street Legal Style presented by AAA and the NHRA Summit Racing Series.
Pop culture observers who think young people’s interest in cars is waning seem to have difficulty explaining a growing interest in motorsports among America’s youth. In fact, to help meet the demand for teenagers wanting to drive fast, NHRA offers a racing program for 13-16-year-olds that combines racing and car safety.
NHRA Jr. Street gives teenage boys and girls the opportunity to race against their peers with an approved licensed supervising adult as a teammate. Competitors will go through an orientation/licensing procedure on an eighth-mile dragstrip in their vehicles, which must meet program requirements. Approved vehicles must be registered, insured, street-legal vehicles with mufflers and street tires and run 9 seconds and slower.
NHRA Jr. Street is for drivers of full-bodied cars, trucks, vans, or SUVs. Prohibited vehicles include open-top SUVs or open-top SUV-type vehicles. Convertible tops are allowed but must be closed at all times. Motorcycles and race cars are prohibited. All vehicles must be street-legal and driven in and carry proof of vehicle registration and valid insurance. Vehicles also must display valid license plates and be able to pass all state highway safety requirements for the state in which the vehicle is registered.
Participants may not compete in any other class except Jr. Dragster. As part of the membership purchase necessary for this program, participants also receive the digital edition of award- winning National Dragster magazine, access to NationalDragster.net, and excess medical insurance (coverage may be different outside the United States).
All of NHRA’s member tracks are eligible to conduct NHRA Jr. Street activities. Those interested in competing should contact a member track by using the Member Track Locator at NHRA.com.
Program rules begin below.
NHRA Jr. Street is the latest program in NHRA’s youth racing segment that also includes the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League, NHRA Drags: Street Legal Style presented by AAA, and the NHRA Summit Racing Series.
REQUIREMENTS & SPECIFICATIONS
Participant may only drive the vehicle from the staging lanes to the starting line, on the track, and on the return road as far as the time-slip booth. The licensed supervising adult must drive the vehicle at all other times.
Licensed participants must be at least 13 years old and may participate through the year of their 16th birthday.
LICENSED SUPERVISING ADULT
All runs must be made with an approved licensed supervising adult, who must be the participant’s parent or legal guardian or 25 years of age or older with a valid state driver’s license. The licensed supervising adult must be seated in the passenger seat of the vehicle anytime the participant is in the driver’s seat. The teen may only drive the vehicle from the staging lanes to the starting line, on the track, and on the return road as far as the time-slip booth. The licensed supervising adult must drive the vehicle in the pits, into the staging lanes, and must take over after the run on the return road past the time-slip booth.
A valid NHRA Jr. Street program participant license and NHRA membership are mandatory. License application must be fully completed and submitted to NHRA in Glendora, Calif., for processing. License application available at NHRARacer.com. All new license applications must include a certified copy of the participant’s birth certificate and a completed and notarized minor waiver and release.
Approved passes are required by the participant: a minimum of five (5) with a licensed supervising adult and one (1) with an NHRA track official, who will determine the safety and eligibility of the vehicle per elapsed time limits. After six (6) successful runs by the participant, the official and licensed supervising adult will sign the license application. An NHRA track official may deny a license to anyone he or she believes cannot handle the vehicle. If an NHRA track official denies an applicant, he or she must repeat the entire licensing procedure.
As part of the licensing process, an NHRA track official also will conduct a vehicle orientation test (to demonstrate mastery of vehicle’s controls), a basic driving test (to demonstrate mastery of vehicle operation), and track orientation (to identify track fixtures, starting line, timing system, return road, time-slip booth, etc.). A vehicle orientation test is required for each vehicle entered in competition. An NHRA track official or licensed supervising adult must be in the vehicle at all times during the licensing procedure.
To add a vehicle, the participant must complete a vehicle orientation test, basic driving test, and safety and eligibility vehicle test and make two (2) approved runs with a licensed supervising adult and one (1) approved run with an NHRA track official. Participant must hold an active membership in the NHRA DRIVER RESTRAINT SYSTEM – Use of seat belts is mandatory for both the participant and licensed supervising adult.
Helmets are mandatory for the participant and the licensed supervising adult. Helmet can be either an open-face or a full- face helmet meeting Snell M2010, or SA2010 or SFI 31.1/2010 or 41.1/2015 certification.
No shorts, bare legs, tank tops, or bare torsos permitted while racing (applies to both participant and licensed supervising adult)

General Rules and Procedures
NOTE: Brainerd International Raceway is an NHRA Member Track and will operate by NHRA requirements and specifications. For detailed safety and general guidelines, and bracket racing requirements, refer to the NHRA Rule Book. Snell 2005 helmets are expired and no longer usable. Head and neck restraints (Hans devices) required for all sub 7.50 cars also Top Sportsman and Top Dragsters.
1. Seat belts must be worn and adjusted in such a manner that the driver’s torso and head cannot extend outside the parameters of the roll cage. Loosening or removing seat belts, helmets, gloves and window nets, lifting the helmet shield, and removing all other safety equipment is prohibited from the time the vehicle leaves the ready line until the vehicle is on the return road. Violators will be subject to disciplinary action in the sole and absolute discretion of the event director and/or NHRA. Please remember to buckle your helmet, our start line is watching!
2. As a courtesy to all the drivers, please get to staging lanes promptly when called, there will be a total of 3 calls to staging. Lanes are closed when the last pair enters the burnout box.
3. The official has the final say in all cases. The computer is an official.
4. Do not stage until the scoreboard indicates your correct dial-in. All drivers, by staging their vehicles, will automatically indicate to the tower that they accept their dial-in on the score board. Please check to see it is correct before you stage! Re-runs WILL NOT be granted for an incorrect dial-in. If in doubt, ask the starter to verify your dial-in before you pre-stage.
5. Your dial-in must be displayed before crossing the yellow line. This line is at the head of the staging lanes. If you have no dial-in on your car, you will be dialed the same as your opponent.
6. The pairings are determined by the staging director in the staging lanes. The director’s pairings are final: You will race who you are paired with or lose the round by forfeit. The director will use a random drawing system to determine these pairings and lane choice. The decision is final.
7. In the event cars have been paired up and called to start and one fails to start or move, the non-offending competitor will be required to take the tree. A vehicle must leave the starting line forward, under its own power, to be eligible for a win.
8. If a vehicle has problems before staging, it will be given 30 seconds to re-start or correct. Actual time allowed will be at the discretion of the starter, and based on the situation at hand. The starter shall have total discretion of the time allotted to stage a pair of vehicles and activate the tree. Track officials will make every effort to determine winners on the race track by competition, not by disqualification. His decision will be final.
9. Auto-start will be used in all classes (except Jr. Dragster Novice class). Movement of a “staged” vehicle after the tree is armed will result in a red-light foul, even though it may occur before the tree counts-down. Also called a “shallow-stage red” it is not grounds for protest or re-run.
10. You cannot enter two drivers in one vehicle in any single BIR class. You may not switch drivers once eliminations have begun. You must finish eliminations with the vehicle/driver you started with.
11. Drivers may enter more than one points fund for different classes. The driver is responsible for being on time for the appropriate class.
12. Stay with your vehicle in the staging lanes. Be ready ahead of time for your pass. If you are not ready to run when called you may be disqualified. The staging director’s decision will be final.
13. No burnouts in the staging lanes or pit areas. No stationary burnouts – except in the water box. Power burnouts across the line are not allowed unless directed by a track official. One (1) backup is allowed to all competitors, for the purpose of re-positioning their vehicle on the starting pad. The car must always pull forward into a staged position, backing into a staged position is dangerous and strictly prohibited!!!
14. Delay boxes must be removed from the car in all no-box classes. If a delay box is found during a run the competitor is disqualified, and a one-year disqualification with the season forfeit.
15. Tow vehicles are only allowed for Super Pro and Junior Dragsters only. Driver must stay with the tow vehicle at all times.
16. In case of vehicle malfunction, please move your vehicle out of the groove and next to the guard wall. This may keep oil from your car off of the racing line.
17. In the unlikely event of a re-run, the re-run competitors will not be allowed to change their dial-ins or lane choice.
18. Bye runs will be given at random in the tower. Bye run drivers will not be eligible for a second bye run until all remaining competitors have also had a bye, which will then be decided by “balling” in the staging lanes. A driver who has the ‘bye run’ must leave the starting line forward, under its own power, to be eligible for a win.
19. If the official time or race results need to be checked, please check with the Tech director for the event. BIR reserves the right to confirm or overturn a race result based on recorded video or official eyewitness account. Please retain your time ticket for the last round you ran, you may need it for verification.
20. Cross talk will be used in Super Pro, the shootout and King of the Track. If you do not wish to use this feature there must be a BIR approved “N” on your car. See Tech for more information.
21. All protests and appeals must be made through the Tech director to the Race Director. Filing a protest during an event does not disqualify any entry until that entry is proven to be illegal by BIR or NHRA officials. NHRA rulebook procedures will be followed in all cases of protest, and in all instances no other entries will be reinstated based on the outcome of the protest.
22. Time trials are made by class when called by the announcer. Extra time trials are not allowed unless specifically approved by the race director. Exceptions may be made by the Race Director when a competitor must substitute a vehicle or demonstrates that factors beyond their control caused them to miss the final scheduled time run session. The Race Director may grant one time run in such cases, provided a hardship exists.
23. In money classes, when a driver breaks after having won the round and can’t make the next round, he/she will be paid the next round loser pay.
24. Payout will be available after 3rd round on Sunday. Payout will be in the tower room next to Race Control. Any payout not picked up will be mailed the following week.
25. Race Control is off limits to all non race officials. If there is an issue, contact the Tech Director and he will pass your concerns on to the Race Director and let you know how to proceed.
26. All drivers and crew members entering a restricted area must sign the appropriate Waiver and Liability Releases. Minors under the age of 18 must have a Minor Release Form signed by both parents or legal guardians. In the case of a single parent (by means of divorce, death, or court order) or a legal guardian (by court order), a written notation must be made in the minor release form.

ET Finals Team Selection Criteria
It is BIR’s discretion how many entrants from each class are chosen. Participants will be chosen from the top of the points down with all races included, and based on the racer’s availability to participate in the ET Finals. Points are totaled through the August race for eligibility using all races included in the total.
2021 Points Program
The 2021 points will be a “best of” series. Participants will have their lowest four finish positions dropped from their points at the end of the year to decide the class champion and finishing positions. If a competitor in the points does not show for a weekend, a score of zero is assigned for that race and is eligible to be dropped. Note: The dropping of the four races assumes nine or more races have had points assigned. Year-end ties will be decided by the competitor standings after the first four races with points assigned increasing from there until the tie is broken.
Earn an extra 100 points for completing an ETI (must be completed by July 12)- NHRA Membership & Permanent NHRA number required for all classes except Jrs.

This race formerly known as the NHRA All Access Challenge, or “Wally Race” as the racers call it, will take place September 26.

BIR racers who compete in Super Pro, Pro ET, Sportsman, Bike/Sled, Street Trophy and Comp Trophy will all have their chance at taking home their very own Wally. If weather stops racing before the finals in a class on Saturday the Challenge is moved to Sundays Race for that class.

Topeka will host the 2021 NHRA West Central Division Summit Racing ET Finals, which will feature the top amateur drag racers from 22 race tracks across the Midwest and Canada. The ET Finals highlights BIR’s Bracket Drag Racing Series and similar programs at each track. BIR will have a team comprised of the top drivers in its Bracket Drag Racing Series who are individually selected based on their position in the points standings and their availability. They will compete against teams from tracks in the five-state area plus Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Wyoming, Colorado and Canada. Teams compete in five different classes – Super Pro, Pro ET, Sportsman, Motorcycle and High School – with individual and team honors, $100,000 in prize money and contingency awards on the line. The class champions from the ET finals will be going on to Pomona for a chance to be crowned champion at the world finals! The ET Finals also includes the Race of Champions, which is a race within a race. Each team identifies one driver in each of the five classes to represent the team in the Race of Champions. Those drivers are then paired up in an elimination format by class to determine the Race of Champions winner. The Champion winner will be next in line if the class event champion is unable to attend the Pomona World Finals! $1000 scholarship for High School Champion. Time trials are Friday and Saturday, with eliminations on Sunday. The Race of Champions is Saturday as well. BIR has always fielded one of the strongest teams at the ET Finals. GO BIR!
