NHRA Carolina Nationals TicketsDrag racing became a part of American culture in the 1930s when people would race their hot rods in dried-out California creek beds. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, although it was growing in popularity, drag racing was still largely an underground society that hadn't made it to the main stream. The National Hot Rod Association, more commonly referred to as the NHRA, was founded in 1951 and by the 1960s, the world's top automobile manufacturers had decided to get involved in the sport. Safety and other innovations began coming together in the 1970s. This has shaped the sport into what it is today. Today the NHRA is the face of drag racing. One of the biggest races each season is the Carolina Nationals. Located at the world-famous Charlotte Motor Speedway, the NHRA Mello Yello Carolina Nationals will serve as the second of six spots in the NHRA Countdown to the Championship.

Where will the NHRA Carolina Nationals be held?The 2020 NHRA Carolina Nationals will return to zMAX Dragway in Charlotte, North Carolina. The drag strip is located at the world-famous Charlotte Motor Speedway. When zMAX Dragway was opened in 2008, it became the first four-lane drag strip in auto racing history. The first race at the new track was an unofficial one. The day before NASCAR's Coca Cola 600, ground was broken on what would become zMAX Dragway. Mike Neff and teammate John Force ran an impromptu race on the incomplete track. Over the course of the last several years, zMAX Dragway has been the host site of many historic moments in NHRA racing.
