NHRA New England Nationals
- 90 feet
The legion of fans in the New England states finally had an event to call their own when the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series made its inaugural visit to Epping, just north of the Boston metropolis, in front of a packed house in 2013. The long and storied drag racing history in New England prompted the construction of this track in 1966, and recent enhancements, including an all-concrete racing surface, set the stage for the largest event in its history in 2014.

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 NHRA New England Nationals through GovX. Click here to purchase.
