For the 12th consecutive year, The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host two NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series national events.

The two 2012 NHRA event dates in Las Vegas will be March 30-April 1 (13th annual NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals) and Oct. 25-28 (12th annual NHRA Nevada Nationals).

“The spring race has been a tradition at Las Vegas Motor Speedway since the NHRA’s first race here in 2000,” said Chris Powell, LVMS president. “The fall event allows us to take advantage of the annual Nevada Day festivities. These dates will allow us to further enhance drag racing’s premier series at America’s greatest drag strip. As one of only three tracks to host multiple NHRA events each year, we’re proud of the role we play in providing the best in drag racing entertainment for race fans.”

LVMS’s fall event also is the next-to-last race in the NHRA’s six-race Countdown to One series which will determine season champions in Top Fuel Dragster, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Bike.
