And Save On Tickets for the NHRA Gatornationals



GLENDORA, Calif. --

In celebration of what would've been NHRA Founder Wally Parks' 100th birthday today, NHRA fans have exactly 100 hours to take advantage of a special ticket promotion in his honor for the upcoming NHRA Gatornationals, the third of 24 races in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season, March 14-17 at historic Auto-Plus Raceway at Gainesville in Northern Florida.

Titled the Wally's 100th Ticket Pack, the special discounted ticket package for the NHRA Gatornationals will go on sale today at noon (ET). The Wally's 100 Ticket Pack provides two Tier 2 adult reserved seat tickets to Saturday or Sunday's racing for only $100 (a 31% discount). The offer, which also waives the $9 service fee for each transaction, is available for a 100-hour time period only and ends Sunday, Jan. 27 at 4 p.m. (ET).

Parks, who passed away in September 2007 at age 94, founded NHRA in 1951 to get hot-rodders off the streets and to take their racing activities to safer dragstrips. Join us on Twitter today as we honor a legend by using #Wally100.

The NHRA Gatornationals is the annual East Coast opener for the NHRA Mello Yello Series, and provides some of the quickest and fastest performances of the season as Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Stock teams compete to become a part of racing history at the Swamp. The event is also the traditional season-opener for the Pro Stock Motorcycle category.

To purchase tickets for the NHRA Gatornationals, please contact the NHRA Ticket Sales Center at (800) 884-NHRA (6472), or to purchase tickets online click here.
