(Photos by Wes Allison) 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. Our first gallery is below, featuring Stock and Super Stock nearly standing on the bumpers and we totally approve.
