For Upcoming Auto-Plus NHRA New England Nationals


With the much anticipated inaugural Auto-Plus NHRA New England Nationals fast approaching, New England Dragway and NHRA officials have issued a traffic flow notice for both competitors and fans planning on attending.

Officials are encouraging competitors in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series and NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series to arrive early in the day and have their car passes in the window and visible. All competitors and vehicles with visible car passes will be directed to exit Highway 101 via exit 8 right in front of the facility where they will follow signs to access appropriate parking areas.

Spectator traffic flow has been developed to provide smooth ingress and egress into New England Dragway utilizing two exits off Highway 101. All spectators coming east on Highway 101 will use exit 8 and proceed right into the facility and follow signs to parking areas. Spectators coming West on Highway 101 will be directed to take exit 9. From there, they will turn right on to Highway 27 (Epping Road) and proceed to the track where signs will direct them to parking locations.

For the last several months, officials at New England Dragway have worked with local law enforcement to develop a traffic flow plan that would serve and manage the thousands of NHRA fans arriving for the first-ever visit of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series to New England.

The biggest stars in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series will be competing at the Auto-Plus NHRA New England Nationals, including local favorite Funny Car driver Bob Tasca III from Hope, R.I., 15-time Funny Car world champ John Force, seven-time Top Fuel champ Tony Schumacher, Cruz Pedregon, Antron Brown, Courtney Force, Ron Capps, Erica Enders-Stevens, Eddie Krawiec and many more.

The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series also will be showcased during the event, featuring exciting side-by-side racing action in Stock, Super Stock, Super Comp and Super Gas categories, among others.

The Auto-Plus NHRA New England Nationals qualifying session for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series will begin on Friday, June 21, with sessions at 4:45 and 6:45 p.m. The final two qualifying sessions will take place Saturday, June 22, at 12:15 and 2:15 p.m. Final eliminations will begin at 11 a.m. on Sunday, June 23.
