NHRA’s Camping World Drag Racing Series 2022 season will look a bit more “normal” with 22 national events. The schedule features the return of the Arizona NHRA Nationals at the close of February, the Virginia NHRA Nationals in Richmond and the Flav-R-Pac NHRA Northwest Nationals in Seattle, the latter serving as the traditional conclusion of NHRA’s annual Western Swing.
There will be two specialty events on the calendar in 2002 for the two nitro categories, Top Fuel and Funny Car. NHRA Allstar Shootout events will be held during the third race of the year, the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville and at the prestigious Dodge//SRT NHRA U.S. Nationals outside Indianapolis over the Labor Day weekend. Details will be revealed as the two events draw closer.
The 2022 Camping World season kicks off in Pomona, heads next to Phoenix, with Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Stock categories, before heading to Gainesville, when Pro Stock Motorcycle joins the fray. Then it’s on to the four-wide Las Vegas event, then the final Houston race before that track goes away, followed by the four-wide contest at Charlotte, being held the final weekend of April, start of May.
In mid-May, the series makes its return to Richmond, before taking a break for Memorial Day. The drag racing stars reconvene in Epping, NH the first weekend of June, head to Bristol, TN two weeks later, and then on to Norwalk, Ohio. July 15-17 starts the Western Swing at Denver, followed on succeeding weeks by Sonoma and Seattle, before heading to Topeka in mid-August, Brainerd and ending the regular season at the U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend.
The 2022 Countdown to the Championship is comprised of six races next year (there are seven in 2021): Reading, Charlotte, St. Louis, Dallas, Las Vegas and Pomona.
