MECHANICSVILLE, MARYLAND (May 26, 2023) – 2023 will bring another special program for the Hubble Motorsports Junior Dragsters. The Elite 8 Junior Dragster Challenge will make its debut at the World Drag Racing Alliance (WDRA) Sportsman Series August 18th – 20th, 2023. The Top 8 racers in the 1320 Fabrication ET Series presented by East Coast Collision points will qualify for the challenge. $500 will be up for grabs in this winner-take-all fight with no entry fee for those that qualify.

The rules are simple:

1. Be in the Top 8 in points for the 1320 Fabrication ET Series presented by East Coast Collision. Final weekend to qualify will be at the Junior Dragster Open Saturday July 29th and Sunday July 30th.

2. All challenges will be at Ron Hubble’s trailer prior to first round of the WDRA Sportsman Series on Friday and Saturday.

3. Pairings – #1 in points will make the first challenge, getting to challenge any of the other 7 drivers. Then, the next driver will get the next selection if they have not yet been selected until all drivers are paired. Lane choice will go to the highest in points in first round.
Example: A) #1 can challenge #2 with those two becoming a pair, with the next selection going to number #3. #3 can challenge any driver that is not #1 or #2.
B) If #1 challenges #5, then #2 can challenge any other driver besides #1 or #5, as those two are paired.

4. Second round challenges are completed based on the best winning package in first round. The driver with the best winning package will make their challenge of the three remaining drivers. Once selected, both match ups will be set. Lane choice will be decided based on the best winning reaction time in Rounds 2 and in the final.

5. First round of the Challenge will be run on Friday before the main event. Semi Finals and Finals will be run on Saturday immediately after the Junior Dragster final, or when all four of the remaining drivers are out of competition.
