And Save On Tickets for the NHRA Gatornationals
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
