junior dragsters

Are the specs for a junior dragster in the sfi book. I want to build my son one and figured it would be a great father son project.
need the tubing specs and such.
Thanks for any help,
Dave
He turned 6 today.
told me last week, he wanted to race. might be junior drag or some oval stuff. maybe both for awhile until he pics one.

Thumbs up

Can't help on chassis info on jr dragsters. But may be able to give insight on the engines. I used to build Briggs & Stratton engines for racing. Did a few for jr dragsters. Most were for kart racing. I was also the "Tech Guy" for Saginaw Valley Karting Association. My boy's raced also. Those were the fun days .

Dave it has been way to many years since I built a Jr. Back then there was no sfi.

Just checked this link and as per NHRA you have to join to get a rule book

If its anything like the big cars only the faster cars will need to be sfi if at all. Some of those things really fly now
