NHRA Racing At Las Vegas Motor Speedway – The Strip

During our visit to 🎰 Las Vegas, Nevada a few seasons ago now, we were lucky enough to be in the city when they were hosting the …

🏁 NHRA Nationals – Drag Races 🏁

during the 🎃 Halloween 🎃 weekend.

I am not really into Drag Racing, but I am a huge {NASCAR Racing} fan and have been for many years!

In fact, we had attended 🚗 NASCAR Races at {Las Vegas Motor Speedway} a number of times over the years. Drag racing is an event that I had watched on 📺 television a few times, and thought it worth experiencing in person at least once.

Boy, were we in for an afternoon of thunderous excitement! 

Check out my short 📹 video I prepared on our day at the races.

Toyota NHRA Nationals (The Strip) Las Vegas Motor Speedway Weekend

This major sporting event ran throughout the entire weekend, and we chose to attend on 🎃 Halloween Day. 

It was a beautiful sunny day in the 🏜 Nevada desert, which made the afternoon perfect for attending the races outdoors in late October.

This major motorsports event is held at …

🏁 Las Vegas Motor Speedway 🏁.

Having purchased reserved 🎫 tickets prior to leaving home was a good thing, because even on Friday, the facility was packed with race fans.

After entering the gates and 🚶 walking thru the drivers souvenir trailers, we were amazed to see an alleyway with the driver’s cars on display for the public to view.

At the NASCAR races you have to get a special 🚶 pit pass to see this. Not at this event, and it was a special added treat to be able to👀 watch the race crews doing their jobs. 

It was a great opportunity to check out these mean machines, spot the drivers and watch mechanics working feverishly on these powerful machines!

While walking about, we could feel the excitement building up as we could already hear cars on the track.

The sound of these high powered engines is even intense, well behind the grand stands!

A Day At The Drag Races In Las Vegas (LVMS)

The Strip Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Like any other sport around the 🌎 globe, 📺 television just does not compare to watching the event in person and up close.

I recall one year attending with family members, a live 🏈 NFL Football Game as an example. Not being a football fan, I merely attended for the enjoyment of travel with family. It took years, but I can now say I’ve attended a professional {National Football League} game in person.

Well, I was amazed! 😲

The size of these professional football players and the excitement and roar of the crowd, is something that can only be experienced live.

📺 Television simply cannot show the reality of it all and this is so much the case in auto racing.

When you experience two 10,000 horsepower machines roar by you at over 300 mph in an instant, it simply and really does, take your breath away!

You actually have to catch your breath as they roar past!

It is an experience that simply must be seen and heard to believe.
