The American Drag Racing League (ADRL) has canceled the remaining dates of the 2022 Extreme Racing Oil & Fuel ADRL Tour Presented by RJS Racing. ADRL as a drag racing sanctioning body is also being shuttered, effective immediately.

ADRL General Manager Andy Carter released the following statement:

Regretfully, we have made the decision not to move forward with the remaining dates of the ADRL’s 2022 season. I have taken a new role within our industry that comes with a strict no-compete clause. Trying to manage an organization like ADRL is a big endeavor and rebuilding the brand makes it even tougher. Mel Roth, who ran the day-to-day operations, and I have discussed every option out there. Between his business, the races he already promotes, and other commitments, it would be impossible for him to continue running the sanction on his own.


We are truly saddened to have to make this decision. Mel and I both believed in the brand and wanted to be able to rebuild the organization. Finally and most importantly, good luck to all the racers; you guys are really what drag racing is all about.
