Photo highlights from final day of the Virginia NHRA Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park.

Raceday started out with the popular on-stage segment in which lead announcer Alan Reinhart interviews select drivers. Homestate Funny Car hero Matt Hagan (pictured), Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Kelly Clontz, Pro Stock’s Shane Tucker, and Top Fuel driver Scott Palmer were the guests for this event.

The SealMaster Track Walk allowed fans to take a stroll down the actual racing surface at Virginia Motorsports Park.

Fans saluted John Force and crew after the 16-time world champ was acknowledged for his 15t7h career No. 1 qualifying effort.

Bob Tasca III may be true-blue Ford, but that didn’t stop him from allowing a Mopar fan to take a selfie with him prior to round one.

The crew for Funny Car world champ J.R. Todd got his DHL Toyota prepped and ready for the start of eliminations.

Jimmy Prock, right, and the AAA team tuned up Robert Hight’s flopper, looking for a long Sunday.

With warm track temperatures, track specialists like John Force Racing’s Lanny Miglizzi provided invaluable information to crew chiefs to aid their setups.

Atlanta Funny Car winner Ron Capps and the NAPA team continued racking up win lights in Virginia.

Fernando Cuadra Jr., left, received congratulations from his father fter scoring his first career Pro Stock round win, upsetting No. 2 qualifier Deric Kramer in the opening frame.

After not winning a round in his first four starts this season, Jonnie Lindberg and car owner Jim Head had a turnaround weekend by reaching the semifinals of Funny Car.

Andrew Hines' rampage through the Pro Stock Motorcycle class continued as he again rode his Harley-Davidson to victory.

Bo Butner nearly doubled up at this event, scoring a runner-up at the SAMTech.edu Factory Stock Showdown but then going on to win in Pro Stock.
