Beech Bend Raceway set to host historic JEGS SPORTSnationals
BOWLING GREEN, KY – Following a triumphant return in 2016, the JEGS SPORTSnationals presented by Quick
Fuel Technologies will once again take center stage this weekend at scenic Beech Bend Raceway Park.
The highly-anticipated event, long been considered one of the crown jewels of Sportsman drag racing, is expected to attract more than 500 of the best drag racers from the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series.
“There are certain races that just have a magical quality about them and this is certainly one of those events,” said JEGS Director of Media and Motorsports Scott “Woody” Woodruff. “Last year we brought the JEGS SPORTSnationals back to its ancestral home in Bowling Green and the response from the racers was overwhelming. We were able to rekindle the spirit of competition and camaraderie that helped make the early SPORTSnationals races so popular.”
