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!

Millsap Tops In Tulsa
& Coker Clinches 2013 SWJFA Championship
The Southwest Junior Fuel Association held their final event of the 2013 season as a headlining act of the Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park Nitro Nationals event, on Saturday, September 14th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Eight junior fuel teams made the tow to the famed quarter mile facility joined by a plethora of other nostalgia drag racing machines at this annual event which also included the final event of the season for the DRO Nostalgia Funny Car series. A highly entertaining event was on tap as junior fuel action got started Saturday afternoon. Odie Coker entered the event the most recent winner and points leader with Ron Muncy giving chase as the series Championship would be decided here in Tulsa.
(Tulsa Final Round - Millsap Vs. Scott)
The call went out to fire up the final round as Millsap and Scott did their burnouts and rolled to the line to decide a winner of the Nitro Nationals in Tulsa. Scott hoped to take his first SWJFA win back to California while Millsap looked to take the "Sachse Rod Shop" dragster to the winners circle for the first time since Shreveport of 2011. Millsap was out first and held the lead from start to finish, posting a 7.52 at 174 mph to take the event win over Scott's 7.84 at 168 mph.

Coker Doubles Up At Ardmore
& Claims Series Points Lead
The Southwest Junior Fuel Association thundered into Ardmore Dragway to host their fourth event of the season as a feature class of the 8th Annual Hot Rod Reunion. This was a double whammy opportunity for two racers as Odie Coker and Ken Hawkins both had a chance to claim two victories in one day. The final round of the previous event at Ardmore in May was rained out and would be made up during the second qualifying session, putting the pressure on these two racers as they battled for points in the intense heat of a southern Oklahoma summer day.
(Ardmore Winner - Coker & Ussery)
(On-Board Odie Coker's car in the final round at Ardmore)
Ron Muncy came into the event as the technical points leader with a minimal four point lead over Odie Coker, these standings not counting the previous event which hadn't yet been completed. Muncy had to keep stride with Coker if he hoped to contend for the 2013 series Championship and was pulling double duty, also driving an injected altered in another category. In the first qualifying session, Coker and Hawkins set the pace as Coker's 4.67 at 148 mph led the pack and Hawkins' 4.73 at 144 mph secured the number two position.
