Four-Wide racing is coming to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway when the Denso Auto Parts NHRA Four-Wide Nationals descends upon Sin City in April. Construction is well under way at the complex just North of downtown Las Vegas, providing the opportunity for this update on the progress of the second four-lane dragstrip.
The inaugural Denso Auto Parts NHRA Four-Wide Nationals is the fourth race on the NHRA Drag Racing tour, coming just after the historic Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals.
Steve Torrence (Top Fuel), Ron Capps (Funny Car), Chris McGaha (Pro Stock), LE Tonglet (Pro Stock Motorcycle) won the most recent Four-Wide race in Charlotte, N.C. in April 2017. The Las Vegas Four-Wide event brings the excitement of Four-Wide racing out West, with the first qualifying session scheduled for 1 p.m. PT on Friday.
Las Vegas Motor Speedway expects to complete construction mid-February. Fans can grab tickets to all three days of exciting racing now, in addition to the season-opening Lucas Oil Winternationals Presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com.
