Thank you for stopping by the official Southwest Junior Fuel Association website. Our goal is to provide a nostalgia style heads up drag racing event to bring back the feeling of the good old days of the wonderful world of drag racing. Our circuit is the only place in the southwest you will find front motored junior fuel dragsters in action!
We currently have 20+ active teams and interest in the SWJFA series continues to grow. Many of our members are original junior fuel drivers from the past that are still racing on the strip today. All of our teams are professional from the word go, not only in appearance, but attitude. Each car is required to have a (NHRA or IHRA) chassis certification along with each driver having a current competition license. Our focus is on giving the spectators and tracks the best show possible and having fun!

Buford Clinches 2016 Championship
Hawkins Takes Lufkin Event Win
The Southwest Junior Fuel Association held their final points race of the 2016 season at Pine Valley Raceway in Lufkin, Texas on Saturday, October 22nd. Entering the event, rookie Rusty Burford held the points lead by just one point over Mike Millsap. The 2016 SWJFA series Championship would be decided in Lufkin as these two battled for precious points. Millsap lost his primary motor at the previous event in Tulsa and thrashed between races to get a new motor put in the framerails of his slingshot dragster, but was unable to do any testing before competition began. Would he have enough to make a run for the title or would the rookie cap off a dream season with the Championship?

Congratulations to Hawkins & Smith on their event win in Lufkin, their first of the season. Congratulations to Rusty Burford and company on their impressive rookie season and well deserved 2016 SWJFA Championship. The SWJFA would like to thank Lubrication Engineers Inc, Hayden Enterprises, Champion Spark Plugs and Hilborn Fuel Injection for their support this season.

Burford Banks First SWJFA Win at Ardmore Dragway
The Southwest Junior Fuel Association landed at Ardmore Dragway on Saturday, September 3rd for their second event of the season. Entering the event, Mike Millsap was leading the points after his win at the season opener in Wichita, Kansas. Tough competition was in the house at Ardmore Dragway including former multi-time series Champion Odie Coker as the qualifying got underway.

The final round came to the line under the lights as Coker and Burford did their burnouts and crept into the stage beams. At the flash of amber, Burford was off the line first with a .009 reaction time while Coker's car shot to the centerline forcing him to pedal the throttle. Burford was hooked up and charging hard with his best pass of the night, a winning 4.80 at 143 mph to Coker's aborted run of a 5.48 at 95 mph. Rusty Burford and company secured their first SWJFA event win in only their second appearance with the series, congratulations to the entire team!
