By Auto News Log • February 8th, 2011

NHRA race fans looking for a little something extra at upcoming events on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series tour can take advantage of some special programs offered at stops at the season’s first few events.

Fans who purchase tickets to the Top Eliminator Club at the season-opening Kragen O’Reilly NHRA Winternationals will get to walk the famed Auto Club Raceway at Pomona course with one of the legends of NHRA, Don “the Snake” Prudhomme. Fans can be a part of history as “Snake” leads fans on a the first ever fan stroll down drag racing’s most famous strip and shares with fans some of his greatest memories.

The Top Eliminator Club is the ultimate way to enjoy NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. From prime starting line seating, access to the exclusive hospitality center and a parking option, the Top Eliminator Club offers Winternationals fans incredible benefits and great value.

Another prime attraction of the Winternationals will be “The “Snake Pit,” which will host a one-of-a-kind display of race cars from Prudhomme’s legendary racing career.
Priced at only $325 each, Top Eliminator Club tickets for the Kragen O’Reilly NHRA Winternationals are the ultimate fan experience and the ultimate value at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.

In late April, Royal Purple Raceway (formerly Houston Raceway Park) will offer fans attending the 24th annual O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Spring Nationals another special once-in-a-lifetime ticket package.

In conjunction with Don Schumacher Racing, the largest professional team in the sport, enthusiasts can purchase an “Ultimate NHRA Experience” that includes a three-day ticket, starting line seats in the comfort of the Super Seat section, and an all-access Pit Pass to DSR’s expansive VIP hospitality area on Friday, April 29. As guests of DSR, fans will enjoy meals prepared by experienced chefs, unlimited refreshments, a meet-and-greet with the DSR drivers, and a chance at special gifts from the team.

“We’re always looking to make the time our guests share with us something special that they’ll always remember,” said Seth Angel, general manager of Royal Purple Raceway. “Last year we opened the Darrell Russell Top Eliminator Club and put those guests closer to the action than any track on the circuit, while simultaneously giving them VIP treatment inside the Club. This year we’re bringing fans into an area that most people can’t access. They’ll literally be hanging out with the top stars of the sport as though they were a major sponsor of the team. It’s an unparalleled experience in motorsports.”

Fans selecting the “Ultimate NHRA Experience” will have the chance to select their favorite pit area from Tony Schumacher and Antron Brown’s U.S. Army/Matco Tools Iron Eagle Club, Spencer Massey and Matt Hagan’s FRAM/DieHard hospitality, or Ron Capps and Johnny Gray’s NAPA Club Nitro hospitality. Each area is limited to 200 guests and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tickets for the “Ultimate NHRA Experience” can be purchased online at https://t1.clicknprint.com/tix/RoyalPurpleRaceway?eventID=25527 or by calling 281-383-7223. Through Feb. 28th, fans will have the option to pay half of the cost now and half one month later through a special flexible payment plan. This offer is available for all single-day and multi-day ticket options, including the “Ultimate NHRA Experience.”
