(Photos by Wes Allison) We’ve got our second gallery of photos from the NHRA Lucas Oil Winternationals right here, and it is full of big and small tire NHRA Sportsman cars with the wheels up hauling the mail in Pomona. We’ll have more stuff from today as well, so tune in all week for great photos. We love all the cars that race at NHRA events, but make sure that we give some love to the Sportsman cars that lots of folks seem to forget. These are the original big and small tire racers and they are real door cars you want to see and drive. And if you missed our first gallery, then use the link below to check it out too!
With all kinds of events being canceled in 2020, and with California leading the charge on restrictions for events, it is no shock that the 2021 NHRA Winternationals in Pomona didn’t happen as scheduled either. But NHRA knew it was going to happen this way because of their close relationship with the LA County Fairgrounds where the famed dragstrip is located so they were able to pivot and make things happen for a Winternationals that would instead happen in the summer. Wait, what? The Winter Summer Nationals? Well, yeah.
I give NHRA big credit for making this thing happen, even if what to call it has become a funny issue. But we’re still going to call them the Winternationals, the event that is SUPPOSED to start off the season in Pomona, because that is what they are even if they get postponed. Lucky for us we have a great group of photographers who have been shooting for us the past week, and this weekend is Wes Allison shooting all the Pro and Sportsman action he can get his camera pointed at.
