Event Info

One of NHRA’s original seven national events, this race is steeped in legend: a historic facility, some of the sport’s more knowledgeable (and definitely most boisterous) fans, and a score of dramatic moments. The event, known again as the Summernationals, has shifted on the schedule from its original scorchingly hot and humid July slot to June, and upsets have become the norm.

As always, fans will have the opportunity to interact with their favorite drivers, as Every Ticket's a Pit Pass® at the most powerful and sensory-filled motorsports attraction on the planet! Get direct access to the teams, see firsthand as the highly-skilled mechanics service their hot rods between rounds, and get autographs from your favorite NHRA drivers.
