It will be the 32nd year that the NHRA has brought the world’s best drag racers to BIR, which is still the fastest track in the country. The race features Top Fuel dragsters, Funny Cars, Pro Stock cars and motorcycles and some of the top Sportsman drag racers in the United States. With open pit areas, an exciting vendor midway and an infamous campground called The Zoo, the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals is an annual tradition for thousands of fans and a favorite stop for the NHRA.
In addition to announcing the 2013 racing schedule, the NHRA also unveiled its new series sponsor: Mello Yello. Next year, the series will be called the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Mello Yello is a popular citrus-flavored soft drink distributed by Coca-Cola.
Highlighting the 2013 schedule is the inaugural NHRA New England Nationals at New England Dragway in Epping, N.H., June 20-23. The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series’ visit to the Northeast marks a process of more than a decade in the making and reaffirms NHRA’s position as offering the most geographically diverse schedule of any major motorsports series in the country.
