NHRA Casts Wider Net With Developing New EV Class
Here’s one vision of what the NHRA’s Summit E.T. Series’ EV class might include in 2022.
- The NHRA’s new EV class for its the grassroots-level Summit E.T. Series continues to take shape for 2022.
- The NHRA class being discussed for the Summit E.T. Series is for OEMs only.
- The Summit E.T. Series is hosted by all 120-plus member tracks that run whatever car count they have within that category. It could be from two cars to 140 cars in a given bracket.
The NHRA’s motto is “Speed For All,” and with its new EV class in the grassroots-level Summit E.T. Series, director of competition Ned Walliser simply is casting a wider net for the sport.
He’s emphasizing the “all.”
“Quite frankly, we’ve had electric rules in the rule book for quite some time, a number of years, actually,” he said. “We’re trying to embrace more of those customers, as you see them increase throughout the country. So we’ve added a category to our Summit E.T. Series for all of our divisions to utilize within that Summit E.T. Series.
