Event Info

          The season concludes where it began with an event traditionally laced with drama. The historic racetrack enjoys a no-holds-barred battle for the prestigious NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world championships. It’s a good bet that the Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycle world titles will still be in doubt at the beginning of the season’s final day.

New for 2018 - NHRA Legends Tour 

          At each of the 2018 NHRA national events, the NHRA has been providing fans  opportunities to meet the biggest names in drag racing history!  The tour wraps up at the 50th Gatornationals, as Ed “Ace” McCulloch, Shirley Muldowney, Darrell Gwynn, Don Garlits, Kenny Bernstein, Joe Amato and many more come together for one colossal blowout to celebrate the 50th annual Gatornationals. Never before will so many NHRA legends be gathered in one place! 

          Get tickets for your chance to meet NHRA Legend Kenny Bernstein and other iconic NHRA Legends at the Auto Club NHRA Finals!

Youth and Education

The NHRA Youth and Education Services (YES) Program presented by the U.S. Army was founded in 1989. It is the only full-time education program in motorsports that provides quality programs and activities for schools and youth organizations nationwide. Not only is the YES Program FREE, it focuses on the importance of goals and continued education, while allowing students to learn about and explore various career opportunities. The program will show students how S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is applied to both, real world situations and NHRA Drag Racing, which they will have the opportunity to see live at the track. For more information, check the Y.E.S Program below.

First Responders

Throughout the 2018 season, the NHRA will pay tribute to the legion of first responders, the heroes who are among the first people to arrive and assist at the scene of an emergency.

NHRA Salutes First Responders will honor medical professionals, law-enforcement officers, firefighters, members of the armed forces, and a number of other professions charged with the safety and well-being of the public, much like the Safety Safari is charged with the safety and well-being of the racing community.

As part of the tribute, first responders will be eligible for discounted tickets to the Auto Club NHRA Finals through GovX. Click here to purchase.
