NHRA and Virginia Motorsports Park officials announced a sellout crowd for Saturday qualifications at the Virginia NHRA Nationals in Dinwiddie, Va.
NHRA returned to the facility, owned by Tommy and Judy Franklin, for the first time since 2009. Numerous facility upgrades, including a completely new racing surface, drew fans from Richmond and the surrounding areas.
“To be able to host all these dedicated NHRA fans and sellout the facility during our first event shows the growth and popularity of NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing,” said Tommy Franklin. “The staff at Virginia Motorsports Park has worked nonstop to get the facility prepared for the event and we are thrilled with the results.”
This is the fifth sellout day of the 2018 season.
