The NHRA and officials at World Wide Technology Raceway announced a sellout crowd for Saturday’s racing action at the 11th annual NHRA Midwest Nationals.
Thanks to a passionate fanbase packing the track on Saturday, the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series enjoyed its second sellout crowd during the Countdown to the Championship. A capacity crowd filled Maple Grove Raceway two weeks ago to kick off the playoffs, while a huge crowd enjoyed a memorable day of qualifying on Saturday in St. Louis, furthering the incredible recent history at World Wide Technology Raceway.
"Once again, our race fans in St. Louis and the Metro East delivered," said Chris Blair, World Wide Technology Raceway's Executive Vice President and General Manager.
"As we've demonstrated time and again, they love NHRA drag racing as well as the other major events we host at World Wide Technology Raceway. This weekend is magical because it has 10 years of date equity, perfect weather, and thousands of loyal enthusiasts. World Wide Technology Raceway is the greatest comeback story in the history of sports venues for one reason: We have the best racing fans on the planet."
The sellout on Saturday marks the seventh sellout crowd for the NHRA in 2022. The NHRA SpringNationals in Houston, the NHRA New England Nationals at New England Dragway in Epping, N.H., and the Denso NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway also featured sellout crowds during the race weekend earlier this season.
