IHRA Junior Dragster Profile: Bentley Hutchison

Monday, 18 December 2023

HOUSE SPRINGS, Mo. — Many of today’s biggest drag racing stars started out in Junior Dragsters. The International Hot Rod Association is calling attention to the next generation of racers through a special series.

Bentley Hutchison, a 10-year-old from Chanderville, Ill., who competes at Central Illinois Dragway is the latest racer to be highlighted. Hutchison actually got his start oval-track racing with quarter midgets at age 5. He started with the Junior Dragsters at age eight.

Hutchison races a 2006 RPC. His racing hero is 16-time NHRA Funny Car World Champion John Force. His favorite school subject is history and the best part about racing is making friends at the track and racing with his cousin Brodie. 


He is learning all phases of racing, currently helping his dad and grandpa build a 1988 Ford Mustang which he plans to race after he leaves Junior Dragsters.
