LIFE + TIMES: NHRA MEDIA EXPERIENCE – LAS VEGAS

NHRA Media Experience

A little over a week ago I was invited by the NHRA to Las Vegas to be a part of the NHRA’ s Media Experience that took place at The Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  This was truly one of the most amazing events that I have ever been a part of.  I had full access to the racers, their crew and the families that make this sport the success that it is.

One the things that I noticed from the moment I stepped on the track was just how friendly and accessible the drivers were.  In most sports, athletes are kept at a distance from the fans.  Not with the NHRA.

This is one of the few sports where the fans are as integral to the sport as the racers themselves.  After spending a few days with some of the teams and racers, I left with a new found respect for everything that goes into these races.

The NHRA season runs through November.  If you are able to get out to a race this season, you will not be disappointed. Check out the full schedule here.

A big thank you to NHRA, Las Vegas Motor Speedway and The Westin for being such gracious hosts.
