Tickets for the 28th annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals are now on sale and fans of the historic event can pick and choose the exact seats where they can be witness to the fastest race in Texas.

The AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals has the most loyal fans in all of motorsports and by picking the exact seats they can watch the nitro-gulping machines has become just one more way to make the ultimate race fan weekend event better.

“We have fans who have been sitting in the same two seats for 27 years,” Texas Motorplex owner Billy Meyer said. “Drag racing offers so many unique perspectives for each race. Some people want to feel the cars launch and they sit near the starting line. Other fans want to be closer to the finish line to see the explosive end to each side-by-side race. Everyone knows where they want to sit and it makes for even more exciting fan experience.”
