Event Info

NHRA’s version of a weeklong campout is a popular stop due to the race's recreational opportunities. Racegoers are known for enjoying the camaraderie of trolling the huge on-site campground, “the Zoo”. A 700-foot concrete launchpad also helps boost performances at the second-to-last event at which teams can secure positions for the Countdown to the Championship.

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! Get direct access to the teams, see firsthand as the highly-skilled mechanics service their hot rods between rounds, and get autographs from your favorite NHRA drivers.

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking the TICKETS button above or by calling 866-444-4455. Purchase early and save!
