By any measure – be it prestige, history, longevity, prize money, importance, or the sheer mind-boggling numbers of race cars involved and passes that will take place Labor Day weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis – the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals is the largest drag race in the world. From its humble beginnings in 1955, when it became NHRA’s first national event, the Big GoTM has become a bucket-list, must-win priority for every drag racer and a must-attend event for every hardcore fan.
The Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals draws up to 1,000 race cars to Lucas Oil Raceway to compete !
The Big Go™ (the final race of the NHRA’s regular season) carries the most emotion, prestige and history for drivers and fans alike, drawing the highest attendance.
The total distance raced on the drag strip during the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals could stretch from downtown Indianapolis all the way to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.
