Thunder Valley hosts the future of drag racing during the NHRA Junior Drag Racing League Eastern Conference Finals July 23-28.

Aspiring drag racers, ages 8-18, from across the country will come to Bristol hoping to hone their skills on the national stage. A future NHRA World Champion may get the first national event win of his or her career in Thunder Valley.

Add the July 21-22 Mike Bos Chassis Craft Jr. Dragster Nationals and various fun races occurring during the days leading in to the Eastern Conference Finals and this becomes one of the greatest weeks of Jr. Dragster racing anywhere.

The event is expected to attract racers from across the East Coast and abroad. Race champions in 2011 represented Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and Pennsylvania. 

Bristol Dragway first hosted the Eastern Conference Finals in 2004 and the Western Conference Finals have been at Bandimere Speedway since NHRA adopted the Eastern/Western format in 2000. Competitors race for individual and team honors at the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Eastern and Western Conference Finals, and nearly $100,000 in savings bonds is given away at each event.
