NHRA Four-Wide Nationals TicketsEach year the NHRA thunders into zMAX Dragway in Concord, N.C., twice. On one of those trips, they line up four of the fire-breathing dragsters at once for the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals. The NHRA's best drivers line up their Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Mod machines to take on the "Bellagio of drag strips." The three-day event kicks off early Friday with 9:00 a.m. Sportsman Qualifying. New fans can attend an "NHRA 101" orientation on Friday afternoon. First-day qualifying continues all day for all categories until the NHRA Prime Time Nitro Qualifying screams into the North Carolina night at 8:00 p.m. Qualifying and early eliminations continue on Saturday. During the day, the fan-friendly NHRA hosts a "Nitro School" and an autograph session with top drivers. On Sunday, eliminations begin at noon and run all day until the Nitro Eliminations Finals and the Winner's Circle around 4:00 p.m. Grab your tickets at StubHub for all three days of the Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway.
How is the zMAX Dragway configured?Constructed in 2008 as part of the Charlotte Motor Speedway complex, zMAX Dragway bills itself as the finest drag racing facility in the world. It hosted its first NHRA event, the Carolina Nationals, in 2008. For NHRA-sanctioned events, the track provides space for Top Fuel and Funny Cars to run 1,000 feet and for Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycles categories' 1,320-foot runs. zMAX Dragway has been the site of many NHRA firsts. It hosted the first four-wide drag race in 2008 as part of the PINKS All Out television show. In 2010, when the NHRA officially went four-wide for the first time, zMAX was the venue. In 2011, Antron Brown became the NHRA's first African-American winner at zMAX. The first woman to win at zMAX was Erica Enders, in 2015. Her victory also propelled her past NHRA pioneer Shirley Muldowney on the all-time NHRA wins list.
What NHRA categories will run at the Four-Wide Nationals?The Four-Wide Nationals draw a full spectrum of NHRA competitors. Top Fuel and Funny Car teams will bring their 10,000 horsepower, nitro-burning machines. You can expect the rear-engine Top Fuel dragsters to top 100 mph in less than a second. Front-engine Funny Cars are very nearly as fast. Pro Mod, Competition Eliminator, Super Stock and Factory Stock Showdown categories are also featured on the event's loaded schedule.
Who are the leading Top Fuel drivers in the Four-Wide Nationals?The NHRA's best Top Fuel drivers show up for the Four-Wide Nationals. Brittany Force, Terry McMillen, Antron Brown and Leah Pruett are among those you can expect to see on the track. In 2019, race winner Steve Torrence ran past McMillen on the way to the winner's circle. You can bet McMillen and the rest of the field will be gunning to top his event-winning 3.778-second, 323.19-mph pass.
Who are the leading Funny Car drivers in the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals?John Force, Matt Hagan, Robert Hight and Alexis DeJoria will compete in a full Funny Car field at the Four-Wide Nationals. In 2019, Shawn Langdon won his first Funny Car event at the Four-Wide Nationals. On the way to victory, he won elimination events against Force, Hight and Hagan. Those competitors will be looking at his 4.125-second, 305.08 mph final run as the mark to beat.
Who are the leading Pro Mods drivers at the Four-Wide Nationals?zMAX Dragway hosted the first NHRA Pro Mods four-wide race in 2017. Mike Castellana made his mark in NHRA history by winning the event with a 5.807-second, 249.35-mph run. Jose Gonzalez won the 2019 Pro Mod category with a 5.657-second pass at 257.14 mph. Castellana returns to take back the title in 2020. To do that, he will have to beat tough challengers like Khalid AlBalooshi, Robert Rahaim and Eric Latino.
