The 2021 recipient of the J. C. Agajanian Award, given in recognition of contributions to Colorado Motorsports made by an organization, is the Vintage Drag Racing Association.  The VDRA is a group of men and women who have preserved the early days of drag racing by competing in vintage looking and original drag cars from the 1950’s through the 1960’s. The club started in 1991 by five racing enthusiasts who were interested inhigh performance Flat Head Ford engine powered vehicles, and has grown to include vintage drag racing cars competing in multiple racing classes.  The VDRA conducts ten to fifteen Nostalgia Drag Racing events at Colorado Drag Strips each summer.
