NHRA and Virginia Motorsports Park have canceled the 2021 Virginia NHRA Nationals due to a full second-half schedule and travel logistics, the sanctioning body announced. The Virginia NHRA Nationals will return to Richmond in May 2022, the NHRA also confirmed.
“Virginia Motorsports Park is saddened to miss the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series for the second year in a row,” said Tommy Franklin, VMP president and owner. “Since our last national event in 2019, the facility has seen numerous upgrades, and we will continue to improve and expand to give our guests the best experience possible when the world’s quickest and fastest motorsport returns to Virginia Motorsports Park in May.”
“The NHRA is disappointed to miss our stop at Virginia Motorsports Park in 2021,” said Glen Cromwell, NHRA president. “We look forward to 2022 when we can again return to Virginia and greet our unbelievable fans with the racing action they expect. NHRA and Virginia Motorsports Park will continue to work together to provide the fans a much-needed 2022 event.”
