NHRA’s annual duel in the desert continues in its traditional spot as the year’s second event. The facility, a Southwest fixture since 1985, is also known for record performances, such as Tony Schumacher’s historic 330-mph quarter-mile blast in 1999 and his record-setting run in 2018.

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.
