Winner's Circle On the Starting Line
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. 

YES Program

First Responders

Throughout the 2017 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 DENSO Auto Parts NHRA Four-Wide Nationals through GovX. Click here to purchase.

Contested at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the event has become a pivotal stop on the tour. This event is the home of the eight-car Pro Stock bonus event, the K&N Horsepower Challenge, the winner of which receives $50,000.

As always, fans will have the opportunity to interact with their favorite drivers, as Every Ticket's a Pit Pass® at the most powerful and sensory-filled motorsports attraction on the planet!
