The National Hot Rod Association announced its 2016 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule today, including the dates for both events at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The NHRA Spring Nationals will take place at Las Vegas' famed drag strip April 1-3, 2016, while the NHRA Toyota Nationals is set for Oct. 27-30, 2016. Las Vegas is one of just three cities - along with Charlotte, N.C., and Pomona, Calif. - that will host two NHRA events next year, and the NHRA Toyota Nationals will once again be the season's penultimate event.

The 2016 schedule at The Strip at LVMS will mark the 16th consecutive year in which two events have been hosted in Las Vegas, and the city's stature as a drag racing hub has continued to grow during that time. Some of the sport's most legendary drivers - from John Force and Tony Schumacher to Kenny Bernstein and Tony Pedregon - have all won races at the iconic drag strip.

Drag racing fans can enjoy this year's NHRA Toyota Nationals Oct. 29-Nov. 1, and tickets are on sale now at LVMS.com or by calling 800-644-4444. Tickets for next year's NHRA events will go on sale later this year.
