- When SEMA was formed in 1963, NHRA was there.
- When the first SEMA Show took place, NHRA was there.
- When the SEMA Show moved to Las Vegas, NHRA was there.
- When the SEMA Show returns to the Las Vegas Convention Center next week, NHRA will be there.
Since the literal beginning of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), the NHRA has been a supporter of the organization. When NHRA partnered with FOX Broadcasting, NHRA on FOX reporters came to the 2016 SEMA Show to conduct live interviews from an all-new NHRA SEMA Show stage to grow that connection. NHRA's Booth 10,000 immediately became known as the most powerful booth in all of SEMA, its numerology played off the horsepower rating of NHRA’s nitromethane Hemi engines.
In 2021, the NHRA on FOX stage returns to the SEMA Show with live interviews, autograph sessions, and NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycles on display.
Here is an early look at the guests we expect on this year’s NHRA on FOX stage at Booth 10,000: Antron Brown, Justin Ashley, Matt Hagan, Robert Hight, John and Brittany Force, Leah Pruett, Bo Butner, David H. Davies, Linda Vaughn, Don Prudhomme, Ron Capps, Travis Shumake, Matt Hartford, Erica Enders, Camrie Caruso, Clay Millican, Steve Torrence, Paul Lee, Krista Baldwin, Angie Smith, Matt Smith, Alex Laughlin, Sean Bellemeur, Dr. Jamie Meyer, and Jim Liaw.
The NHRA will also host its legendary Wednesday morning breakfast open to all SEMA Show attendees. The NHRA Breakfast at the SEMA Show will be held Wednesday, Nov. 3, from 7:30 a.m.–9:00 a.m., at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino Paradise Events Center.
This year’s breakfast, hosted by NHRA on FOX’s Brian Lohnes, will highlight NHRA’s Next Generation of Team Owners and feature Antron Brown, Josh Hart, and Krista Baldwin.
