Monday, January 21, 2012
Calif. -- NHRA officials announced today a new engine
program for the NHRA Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League
with the acceptance of the Briggs & Stratton 206 engine
beginning in 2013.
The accepted 206
crate engine must be factory sealed and is approved for all
NHRA age groups: 8-9 year old class (12.90-seconds &
slower), 10-12 year old (8.90 & slower) and 13-17 year old
class (7.90 & slower).
No alterations or modifications are permitted
except for installation of exhaust header and air filter.
“We could not be more
excited to announce this new program and renewed
relationship with Briggs & Stratton” expressed Josh
Peterson, NHRA V.P. Racing Administration.
“The program will greatly reduce the entry level
costs for families to get involved in the sport and
stimulate the growth of the NHRA Summit Jr. Drag Racing
Briggs & Stratton
launched the 206 crate engine program in 2008 to give racers
an out-of-the-box (simple), cost-effective, performance
solution. Building from the proven reliability of the
Animal racing engine, the 206 crate engine maintains a level
playing field by isolating the performance variables
commonly found in standard, mainstream manufacturing.
Each 206 crate engine is hand-built in a dedicate facility
to exacting standards and measured against a factory
developed rule set. The end-result is a performance
racing engine with the proven repeatability that has led to
four years of world-wide wins at the highest levels of
racing right out of the box.
“We are incredibly excited
to once again have the opportunity to work with the NHRA and
their Jr. Drag Racing League” said David Klaus,
director-Briggs & Stratton Racing. “As one of the original
founding partners we were able to help be a part of the
growth of the league as well as get to know the racing
families involved. This sport makes great racers but
it also helps make family memories. That is something
that Briggs & Stratton Racing loves to be a part of and we
look forward to the future.”
“NHRA’s acceptance of
the 206 crate engine is a great opportunity for us to
support the league with a new option for cost-effective
racing,” continued Klaus.
“Families now have another
cost-effective option to help build memories that will last

concern. Please continue to keep Roger and
the rest of the Hopf family in your thoughts and prayers.
Hopf, of Madison, and a member of our Oahe Speedway racing

ladder last weekend.
Roger was working in his shop when a ladder
collapsed and he fell about 15 feet to the concrete floor
below. He suffered multiple fractures and has been
undergoing surgeries to repair the broken parts. At
this time all has gone as well as can be hoped for.
The family is hopeful that Roger can return home by this
weekend to continue his recovery, pending the outcome
of his surgeries.
Roger and his family have a long road ahead of them,
please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
We will try to update you as we get additional information.
