The voice, the stature, the sincerity, Wally Parks' DNA clearly flows through his grandson Scott Parks — and the Parks' dedication to the fans of drag racing is equally evident. At the 2023 Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals, Scott Parks joined us on the starting line to welcome fans to the first Wally Parks NHRA Nostalgia Nationals in Bowling Green, Ky. It sure is good to have a Parks back where this all began.
Join us this weekend for the Wally Parks NHRA Nostalgia Nationals presented by Holley at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green. Experience the best in quarter-mile nostalgia drag racing; vintage speed parts; hundreds of classic race cars, hot rods, and customs; and meet drag racing’s legendary "Big Daddy" Don Garlits. Take Exit 28 off Highway I-65 and follow 31W South to the fifth traffic light and turn right on Riverview Avenue, which turns into Beech Bend Road. Tickets at the gate are just $30 each day; Kids 15 and Under are FREE!
The NHRA will live stream the Wally Parks NHRA Nostalgia Nationals presented by Holley on NHRA.tv beginning on Thursday, June 15, 2023
