DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals

Event Info

As if Las Vegas weren’t loud and ostentatious enough in its own right, the city hosts the fire and fury of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series twice each year, including the first-ever four-wide event on the West Coast this spring. 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! 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.
