 NMCA Drag Racing ImageSanta Ana, CA  – Drag racing fans know there’s a lot more to Las Vegas than gambling and nightlife. Just a few miles from the famed Las Vegas strip, there will be non-stop action and 250+ mph drag racing on September 5-7 when the 3rd Annual NMCA WEST Muscle Car Nationals takes over The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The “World’s Fastest Street Cars” from the NMCA WEST Flowmaster drag racing series will dominate the drag strip as they compete for precious points for the year-end championship.

This family-friendly grassroots drag racing event has something for every American muscle car fan. From mild to wild, there are Chevrolet Camaros, Dodge Challengers, Ford Mustangs and more, competing in 10 different classes on the quarter-mile track. As part of the Aerospace Components NHRA Unleashed program, event champions (in the points classes) will take home a coveted Wally trophy, named after NHRA founder Wally Parks. Fans of all ages will enjoy the TREMEC True Street class where street-legal cars take a 30-mile escorted cruise to prove their “street worthiness” followed by three back-to-back passes on the drag strip. The action ramps up a notch in classes like Garrett Pro Mod where highly modified cars battle it out at over 250 mph. Other classes such as Edelbrock Super Quick, ProCharger Street Outlaw, Granatelli Motor Sports Mustang Madness, FSC Pro Comp, Calvert Racing Quick Street and Mickey Thompson True 10.5 bring out close competitions for some of the best racing in the West.
