Tickets for 2006 NHRA Nationals at

The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway now on sale


Tickets for the seventh annual NHRA Nationals, April 6-9, 2006, at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, are now on sale.

The announcement comes on the heels of one of the most intense and exciting NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series events held at The Strip at LVMS, just three days ago. Tony Schumacher clinched his third consecutive Top Fuel Dragster championship on Friday, won the Bud Shootout on Saturday, then overpowered David Grubnic to grab the final-round victory on Sunday. The event also featured the tightest Funny Car points race in the history of the sport, pitting perennial favorite John Force against teammates Ron Capps (who won the final round Sunday) and three-time Top Fuel Dragster champion Gary Scelzi, who is looking for his first Funny Car title.

NHRA national events at The Strip at LVMS are famous for bringing the biggest names in professional drag racing to town, including 2005 NHRA Nationals victor Larry Dixon, Cruz Pedregon, Tony Pedregon, Greg Anderson (who also clinched the 2005 Pro Stock championship here last weekend) and Brandon Bernstein.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the LVMS ticket office at (702) 644-4444, or online at
