Junior Dragster Schools

You don't just learn to drive a Jr. Dragster on your own. That's why Cosby Motorsports is proud to sponsor our Jr. Dragster Racing Schools. Kids are taught about the Jr. Drag Racing League, vehicle componentry, safety equipment, raceline preparation, starting line reaction & how to drive a Jr. Dragster down the track as fast as possible. The course has a high emphasis on having fun, and features the use of a Cosby Motorsports Jr. Dragster as well as instruction from extremely knowledgable racing professionals.

This years classes were presented in Medicine Hat, Alberta and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. School sessions for next season are subject to track availability and there is a limit of four (4) students per class - plus parents. For more information on class schedules, locations and tuition fees please contact us. We love racing and look forward to sharing our love with you!
