Limited Seating Is Available, Allowing Fans to Cool Down As The Action Heats Up


After a wildly popular debut at the Four Seasons Heating & Air Conditioning Burndown at Sundown, indoor seating at Route 66 Raceway is back! A limited number of tickets are available during the O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals, starting at $125 for Saturday and Sunday. 

Limited inventory is available and this opportunity is expected to sell out. The indoor seating ticket provides access to a climate controlled luxury suite in addition to one parking pass per day for every two tickets purchased. Food and beverage is not included.

Fans who have already purchased their tickets to Route 66 Raceway’s premier event can upgrade to indoor seating for $70 on Saturday and $65 on Sunday.

The NHRA Nationals begin with Friday Night on Fire, featuring the first night of qualifying for the stars of NHRA followed by a jet car finale, with fire breathing jet cars attempting to reach speeds of 300 miles per hour. The following day, All-Star Saturday celebrates Route 66 Raceway’s 15th Anniversary season with the legends of drag racing and the second round of qualifying before Championship Sunday. The weekend wraps up with prestigious Championship Sunday, marking the finale of the O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals. Championship Sunday features an all-access experience for fans including a track walk, driver introductions and a Winner’s Circle celebration. In 2012, Antron Brown emerged victorious in the Top Fuel class on Championship Sunday and went on to become the NHRA Top Fuel World Champion.

Tickets start as low as $41 with a full-weekend of heart-pounding racing available for just $135. Every ticket is a pit pass, giving you a chance to meet drivers, see the cars up close and view interactive displays in “Nitro Alley.” With Two Nights of Nitro leading into Championship Sunday, there will be no shortage of action in the first true Stadium of Drag Racing. Visit or call (888) 629-RACE today.
