Unlike a typical three-hour football game or two-hour concert, IHRA drag racing is an all-day affair. The best advice for you, as fans, might well be the same advice given to the teams you’re coming to watch: Come early, stay late, and be prepared.
You can expect lots of noise, dust, and burning rubber! Some of the vehicles can be pretty loud, so be warned!
As you would for a ball game or a rock concert, plan ahead, beginning with your tickets. We would always recommend that fans buy their spectator tickets in advance. It’s cheaper to buy in advance than to wait until you get to the gate.
Make sure you check out our What To Bring page to make your weekend at the drag races more comfortable.
Remember that Saturday is the Night of Fire. Don’t make a headlong rush for the gates the instant the last nitro car runs or you’ll miss the fireworks.
