We are told NHRA is in the final stages of developing a video game to compete with the other forms of motorsports with the intent of creating an I-Racing style simulation presentation. Reportedly NHRA will soon make its announcement in the coming weeks. 

RUMOR MILL - THE NEWEST SCHEDULE SHUFFLE

Looks like the NHRA could get a schedule makeover soon. Word has it the Bristol date could end up in Mid-October while Richmond, Seattle and Epping dates are not looking positive due to COVID-19 restrictions. And while Pomona was postponed, there's a growing consensus the traditional season opener in Pomona, could settle into Seattle's place on the schedule during the Western Swing. 

RUMOR MILL - THE WINTERS IN THE WESTERN SWING?

And no, this isn't an April Fools joke either. Our sources are telling us that chances are that the NHRA event in Pomona might not be a go until deep in the summer. With this said, there's significant banter amongst our sources close to the NHRA suggesting the NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, Ca., will be run during the Western Swing if it runs at all. It all makes sense except for one part - keeping the Winternationals branding. 
 

RUMOR MILL - POMONA A NO-GO FOR NOW?

Multiple reliable sources have told CompetitionPlus.com, that the NHRA Winternationals, scheduled to get underway in a couple of weeks, has been postponed to a later date in the year. Reportedly , the Vegas Four-Wide is expected to go forward without a hitch. We are told the NHRA still plans to have 22-events as scheduled. We are told an announcement is coming on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.
