Event Info

The NHRA returns to Bristol Dragway June 7-9, serving as the eighth of 20 races during the 2024 NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series season!

Bristol Dragway is known as Thunder Valley thanks to the incredible noise created when nitro cars power their way through the mountains that flank the dragstrip in Tennessee. The facility hosted NHRA’s SpringNationals from 1965 to 1967 and went under an $18 million renovation in 1996.

NHRA returned to Thunder Valley in 1999 to rave reviews. It remains a favorite for drivers and fans alike, setting up an exciting summer of racing on the NHRA’s national circuit!

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking the TICKETS button above or by calling 800-884-NHRA (6472).

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.
