“Each and every year the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series brings a spectacle to Route 66 Raceway unlike any other in the state of Illinois, with the kind of heart-pounding, full-body sensory experience that sets this sport apart from the rest,” said Scott Paddock, Route 66 Raceway president. “In 2012 we saw Erica Enders become the first female driver to win an NHRA Pro Stock race, and in 2013 we saw a parade of three-second Funny Car runs along with a Top Fuel win at Tony Schumacher’s home track, so we’re fully expecting 2014 to continue the history of dynamic, groundbreaking racing that Route 66 Raceway has been known for.”
The NHRA Nationals begin with Dialed-in Thursday, where kids 12 and under are admitted for free. Friday Night on Fire, featuring the first night of qualifying for the stars of NHRA, is followed by a jet car finale and a newly added fireworks show for the whole family to enjoy. The following day, All-Star Saturday, is a competition reserved for 100 of the top Sportsman racers from the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series as they blaze down the track for a share of a $119,000 purse. John Force, Courtney Force, Antron Brown, hometown favorite Tony Schumacher, and company return to the track that evening for a second round of Top Fuel and Funny Car qualifying on Saturday night. The weekend wraps up with the crowning of new track Champions at prestigious Championship Sunday, 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.
Every ticket purchased serves as a pit pass, meaning each fan will receive an up-close and personal look at their favorite cars.
