The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series continues its pursuit of speed in Indianapolis for another nitro-fueled, points-earning weekend, August 6-9! This weekend will allow a limited number of spectators each day, but you can expect four full days of drag racing during the NHRA Indy Nationals! The Division 3 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series will be in competition with a whole array of Sportsman competition beginning on Thursday and the Mello Yello professional classes begin qualifying on Saturday featuring Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycle. The weekend will also feature the E3 Spark Plugs Pro Mod Series presented by J&A Service, the Mickey Thompson Tires Top Fuel Harley class, and the Mountain Motor Pro Stock class, competing for the first time in 2020. 

Tickets start at just $20. Advance ticket purchases are highly encouraged for these events due to limited capacity and in an effort to create fewer touchpoints.

Come out to celebrate and support the fastest, most explosive sport in the world, right here at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis!
