Junior Dragster

Junior Dragsters are half-scale versions of full sized Top Fuel drag racing vehicles with single cylinder, five-hp engines powering these long nosed racers. While smaller, these race cars can still do up to 85 mph on an 1/8 mile track (although mostly, younger racers are restricted from going this fast) but they are a great way for the 5 – 17 year olds to get their thrill on. The NHRA and IHRA sanctioning bodies both have race classes for Junior Dragsters where they can compete and earn points towards championship standings, just like their full-sized brethren while gaining the skill set to really punch it off the starting line.

According to the NHRA, the Jr Dragster class was started by Vince Napp, who built the first half-scale version that was presented to the sanctioning body, already in the market for a vehicle class for younger drivers.

Jr Dragsters for sale on RacingJunk.com are both new and used, and a great entrée for the kid who is ready to race, or the parent ready to pass on the knowledge and love of speeding down the straight.
