NHRA Fall Nationals
When people come to Texas, they expect big things. The state is big. The signs are big. The drinks are big. Texas Motorplex, however, is one giant contradiction.
Texas Motorplex was the first super-stadium ever built specifically for drag racing. To say the least, it was a very big deal when Texas Motorplex owner Billy Meyer opened its gates in 1986.
The Motorplex tradition of hosting big events continues in 2013 as it plays host to the 28th annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals, Sept. 19-22, 2013 on the original all-concrete quarter-mile surface just south of Dallas.
The biggest names in drag racing will again battle for bragging rights, Texas-sized prize money and the highly coveted Wally trophy when the Mello Yello tour makes its only stop in North Texas.
It’s big. Really big.
The margin for error, however, is, decidedly small.
Not only is the event on one of the quickest surfaces on the tour, it’s also the second of six Countdown to One championship playoff events. Win at the Motorplex to earn a chance at glory. Lose at the Motorplex and hope of earning the series title starts to fade quickly.
Champions are made at Texas Motorplex. AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals professional winners, Antron Brown in Top Fuel and Allen Johnson in Pro Stock, went on to earn the 2012 NHRA Full Throttle series championship.
The 2013 event will feature highly motivated racers competing for the Texas Motorplex victory as well as a chance at the NHRA Mello Yello World Championship in Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle. The top 10 drivers in each of the four categories –– as well as seven sportsman categories – will bring the world’s most competitive drag racing teams to Texas, Sept. 19-22, 2013. Don’t miss the action!
