Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals
August 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - August 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm CDT
NHRA’s version of a weeklong campout, this event is a popular stop due to the area’s recreational opportunities. Avid anglers often spend the days before the event trolling the area’s many lakes for walleye, bass, and northern pike, and a huge on-site campground known as “the Zoo” provides nightly camaraderie for racegoers who sit around fires discussing the day’s action. A 700-foot concrete launchpad, one of the longest on the tour, helps boost performances at the second-to-last event at which teams can secure positions for the Countdown to the Championship.
