The Junior Dragster program will now be divided up into three categories. This change will allow the youth program to expand and give these young racers the opportunity to gain more racing experience. The three sub-categories are novice, intermediate and advanced. The novice class is for racers ages six to seven and eight to nine years old. The intermediate class applies to racers between the ages of ten to 12 years. The advanced class includes racers who are ages 13 to 18 years old.
There are now guaranteed purses, lower entry fees and increased end of year payouts for Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series. Also, new for 2018 are new racer incentive programs. Information regarding the specifics of the incentive programs will be released at a later date.
