As the finale to the hotly-contested 2015 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, this year’s event will feature top fuel and funny cars hitting speeds in excess of 300 miles per hour, not to mention revving at over 10,000 horsepower each.
So what does that look like? In a word, fast. Cars race down the track in four seconds flat, so you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled.
But fret not, race fan. With a bevy of immersive experiences at your disposal, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with the world’s fastest cars and drivers. Evert ticket is a PIT PASS®, which gives you unlimited, firsthand access to all the high-octane action taking place on the raceway, from the drivers giving out autographs to the highly-skilled mechanics servicing their hot rods between rounds.
Want to up the ante? Opt for Top Eliminator Club tickets and take in all the races in style thanks to prime starting line seating, a deluxe hospitality center, complimentary breakfast and lunch, complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages daily, closed circuit tvs for live on-track action, and more. Or meet living legend and four-time NHRA Funny Car champion Don “The Snake” Prudhomme in the Snake Skybox with the purchase of a Skybox Pass. You’ll be able to take in the nitro qualifying and eliminations with Prudhomme in an air conditioned suite, as well as get his autograph and pose for photos alongside the legend.
Of course the fun doesn’t stop there. From the chance to take in historic race cars at Hot Rod Junction to a Q&A with drivers at the Night of Champions at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum to all the World Champion titles that will be on the line, the NHRA Auto Club Finals are sure to be a memorable experience for any race fan and his or her family.
