And Save On Tickets for the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals

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 O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals presented by Super Start Batteries, the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season-opener, Feb. 14-17 at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in Southern California.

Titled the Wally's 100th Ticket Pack, the special discounted ticket package for the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals will go on sale today at noon (PT). The Wally's 100 Ticket Pack provides two Tier 2 adult reserved seat tickets to Saturday or Sunday's racing for only $100 (a 28% 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. (PT).

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 O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals presented by Super Start Batteries is the tradition-rich season-opener for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, where teams unveil the new cars and sponsors for the season and NHRA rookie drivers hit the track for the first time in official competition. Defending Mello Yello Series world champions Antron Brown (Top Fuel), Jack Beckman (Funny Car) and Allen Johnson (Pro Stock) will begin defense of their respective titles at this action-packed event at fabled Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.
