NHRA Revises 2020 Mello Yello Schedule

NHRA officials have announced revisions to the 2020 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule. The series is tentatively planned to resume June 5-7, with the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway (Gainesville, Florida). The season will conclude with the crowning of the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series champions November 13-15, at the Auto Club Finals at Auto Club Raceway (Pomona, California).

The revised schedule will consist of 19 total events, with 17 of those events being contested when the series resumes in June. Six of these events will be condensed to two-day competition schedules for the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series classes due to economic and logistical factors. As a result, points will not be reset after the U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway (Brownsburg, Indiana). NHRA has held two make-up dates on the calendar in case there are further delays.  

Tentative schedule announcements for the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Series, Mickey Thompson Tires NHRA Top Fuel Harley Series and Samtech.edu NHRA Factory Stock Showdown Series will be announced at a later date. All NHRA-sanctioned drag racing series competition is still suspended until further notice.
