The championship intensity will be apparent as all the stars in Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle go all-in at one of the last stops of the season. The heart-pounding, 11,000-horsepower action includes the new and thrilling NHRA Prime Time qualifying during the second session on Friday. Drivers perform a burnout to their favorite jams played by an on-site DJ and the festive scene in Las Vegas provides the perfect backdrop. From there, the action will continue to be must-see as drivers look to leave their championship mark in the city of bright lights.
Hector Arana Jr. has struggled to open the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship in Pro Stock Motorcycle and will look to finish his season on a good note. Points leader Andrew Hines hopes his year ends with a sixth world title.
NHRA fans can take part in the Mello Yello Walking Tour to see the cars and teams hard at work in the pits. Fans can also attend Pro Stock School and Nitro School to learn how the cars operate and reach their thrilling speeds. The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will also host a Mello Yello autograph session and allow fans to meet their favorite drivers as well as the Sealmaster Track Walk hosted by NHRA announcer Joe Castello. Another can’t-miss experience is the winner’s circle celebration on Sunday after racing concludes. NHRA fans are invited to congratulate the winners of the event as they celebrate their victories.
