For the second consecutive year, NHRA officials announced a sellout for Saturday’s racing at the NHRA New England Nationals at New England Dragway. Fans from all over the northeast have filled the grandstands, pit areas, and campgrounds under pristine weather on the second day of the three-day competition. The NHRA New England Nationals is the ninth of 24 events in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
“It’s no surprise to see another sellout,” said New England Dragway General Manager Joe Lombardo. “New England race fans love the experience only a NHRA national event can bring. We thank everyone for supporting our track and the NHRA New England Nationals.”
This is the second Saturday sellout of the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. Saturday of the Lucas Oil NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway was also a sellout for the second consecutive year.
Action at the NHRA New England Nationals continues Sunday with eliminations beginning at 11 a.m. ET.
