NITRO REVIVAL 2020: Nov 7th at Irwindale Dragstrip

Sat 11/07/2020




This event has been canceled

To Our Nitro Revival Family, Friends, and Participants,

Please be advised that Nitro Revival, scheduled for Saturday, November 7, has been indefinitely postponed. This comes as a result of the recent increase of COVID-19 cases, and the challenges that come with promoting an event under such circumstances.

After consulting with local officials regarding these challenges, we were advised to postpone Nitro Revival until a time when we can assure the safety and success of the event.

It is extremely disappointing, as so much time, energy, emotion, and money have been invested into the project. We will survive, and move on. There will be another Nitro Revival!

A future date will be determined once COVID-19 restrictions become clear and are less restrictive.

For those who registered for the event online with TheFOAT, refunds will begin to process automatically.

Anyone who registered in person or via mail, Nitro Revival Entries for all categories, and all Participant Passes sold, will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled event. New tickets and parking permits will be issued when the rescheduled date is established. For those who registered via mail-in registration, full refunds will be available upon request. Please email request to:

Refunds will be mailed only to the person, and address, listed on the original entry form and/or ticket order.

We cannot thank our loyal supporters and followers enough, as we endeavored to make this event happen. We regret the inconvenience of disrupted plans.

We thank the folks at Irwindale Dragstrip for their continued efforts, and faith in our cause. Together...we will produce future Nitro Revival events.
