The Junior Dragster program is designed to allow youth, as young as 8 years of age and up to 17, the opportunity to race against their peers in near replicas of the models that the Pros drive.
Juniors may compete through the calendar year of their 18th birthday. Jan 1 to Dec 31 If a competitor turns 10 during the season, they may finish the year out in the beginner class. The competition structure is designed to be conducted on an ET dial-your-own format, or a preset index on a heads-up breakout basis.
Functional tail light mandatory on all entries. A photocopy of every competitors birth certificate must accompany all new license applications. Competitors must make 6 passes to obtain or upgrade IHRA license. Breakout rules apply.
One warning will be issued if a competitor runs quicker than If the competitor does this a second time at the same event, they will be disqualified from the event. Any competitor running quicker than Class based on either dial-your-own ET or heads-up Pro start. ET restricted to 8. One warning will be issued if a competitor runs quicker than 8.
If a competitor runs quicker than 8. Any competitor running quicker than 8. If a competitor does this a second time at the same event they will be disqualified from the event. If a competitor runs 7. Due to the radical combinations available for the class additional safety requirements may be mandated if deemed necessary by the technical department. Body panels must be removable-fastened to tabs welded to frame. Drilling of frame for mounting body prohibited. Additional safety requirements may be imposed based on design characteristics.
Vehicles are not permitted to burnout past the starting line. Dial-ins must be within class and performance limits. Any dial-in below allowable limits will have to be changed to an allowable dial-in before staging. DRIVER The driver must remain in the confines of the roll cage at all times and safety equipment may not be removed until the vehicle has come to a complete stop off the racing surface.
Arm restraint shall be combined with the driver restraint system such that the arm restraints are released with the driver restraints. Refer to manufacturer for instructions.
Membership mandatory. Either a full face helmet, shield or goggles mandatory. SFI Spec The use of nylon or flannel pants is prohibited.
Competitors running 8. See class requirements for additional details.. All seat belt and shoulder harness installations must be mutually compatible, originally designed to be used with each other. Only those units that release all five attachment points in one motion permitted.

A second shutoff switch on the center top portion of the deflector plate within easy reach of the crew or race official mandatory. All entries must have a mechanical shutoff switch to ground the spark plug located within easy reach of the driver.

Carbon fiber prohibited. Must conform to standard dragster configuration as outlined else where in this guide.
Mild steel chassis prohibited in the Master classification. Note: cm may be used in place of. Magnesium prohibited. All rod ends must be of aircraft quality or better, and they must have a bolt through with lock nut or drilled and cotter keyed. Steering must also have washers on bolts to keep rod ends from pulling through. The crew person should keep the starter close by in case its needed. Push starting any vehicle is prohibited. In order to be a legitimate race winner, the competitor must start and self stage the vehicle under applied power.
This rule also applies to single runs. All competitors will be given reasonable time to re-fire their entry, provided it is not prestaged. The amount of reasonable time is determined by the starter. Crew members are prohibited from touching the vehicle after it is pre-staged. Crew members touching the vehicle once it is pre-staged will be disqualified. Once both cars are pre-staged and the first car fully stages, the second car has a predetermined amount of time 15 seconds to stage before the tree is automatically activated.
If a competitor unintentionally lights both bulbs before the opponent stages, the starter will pull the vehicle back and allow to re-stage.
The starter has full control and is the only one who may pull back car whether it is pre-staged, staged or overstaged. The auto start system will be activated when both cars are pre-staged, so if you are staging deep you should do it in a timely fashion. Crew member may assist the entry in the pre-staging of the vehicle. Once the entry is pre-staged, crew members must be behind the vehicle and out of both competitors view.
Pull Backs in the case of over staging are permitted one time if time permits. If the auto start system cycles during the pull back, the run will stand. The use of any handeld portible device such as an MP3 players or ipod is also prohibited on race track or any time the competitor is seated in the vehicle.
See General Regulations for specific information. May be utilized to record engine RPM, cylinder head and exhaust temperature.

On board computers and data recorders are permitted. Wheel and driveshaft pickup sensing devices are prohibited.
IHRA Recognizes Electric Drag Racing
See also: Disqualifications Chassis Certification Information Chassis Inspection: By submitting a chassis for inspection, owning or driving a vehicle which has had its chassis certified, or otherwise participating in the sport of drag racing, all participants acknowledge and agree to the following terms and conditions regarding chassis inspection and certification. The foregoing and following terms govern all IHRA chassis inspections and certifications: 1. Participant will not operate a vehicle or allow it to be operated at a weight in excess of the "Maximum Permitted Weight" or at an elapsed time less than the "Quickest Permitted" ET for which the chassis is certified, or otherwise not in compliance with any IHRA rule, regulation or agreement. Each participant further agrees to assume full responsibility for ensuring that the chassis meets the IHRA Chassis Certification and that there are no defects, latent or otherwise, in the chassis prior to use. If at any time a vehicle does not comply with current IHRA Chassis Certification requirements, it will not be driven in any manner at an IHRA track, IHRA member track, or anywhere at all outside a repair garage, until required repairs have been completed and certification or recertification is obtained. If at any time a participant does not accept these risks, the participant agrees not to participate in drag racing.
The world of electric drag racing got a whole lot more exciting with the announcement from the International Hot Rod Association IHRA with the incorporation of electric vehicles into their rule book. For your average drag race fan, this change opens a new and exciting chapter on the drag race scene, not seen since the likes of the inception of the electric vehicle itself. Creating this change paves the way for emerging technologies to compete alongside their combustion engine counter parts at race tracks across Canada and throughout North America. With the rapid development in battery technology, electric drag racers are getting faster with each passing month. The race track also provides a platform for battery research and development which helps pave the way for the further evolution of the electric vehicle movement.
