May 16, 2021, St. Louis Region – The 2021 NMRA-NMCA Super Bowl of Street-Legal Drag Racing was completed this afternoon at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois and its series promoter and track officials announced the popular event will return to the St. Louis region on May 12-15, 2022.
“I’ve long been a fan of the NMRA and NMCA and it’s been an honor hosting the Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing in 2020 and 2021,” said WWTR Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair. “The tremendous year-over-year growth, as well as the record-shattering performances we saw on the track this weekend, has me optimistic for the future of this great event at WWTR.
“Steve, Rollie and the entire NMCA and NMRA team have a great product and it fits well with our track and our geographic location. The 2022 Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing will be the destination event for fans, participants and vendors of great drag racing action. The entire WWTR team is fully dedicated to the growth of this showcase event.”
This weekend’s event, televised on FloSports’ FloRacing channel, attracted more than 475 racing entries – from exotic Pro Mods to bracket cars – and included a car show and large manufacturer midway. The nine-race 2021 series also competes in Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
