Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion: June 15-17, National Trail Raceway, Columbus, Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- (June 11, 2007) -- Forget the tie. Forget the lawnmower. Instead, take dad to the 2007 Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion, presented by SoffSeal, at National Trail Raceway (NTR) on Father's Day, June 17, 2007. Dad and a car full of kids under 16 are admitted for just $15. And the first 1,000 spectators receive a free Mattel Hot Wheels die- cast car.

"A Sunday at the Reunion is just what dad wants," said Tony Thacker, executive director of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. "National Trail Raceway features easy access for fans, cars and activities. Dad and the kids can watch the vintage drag races, visit the swap meet, check out the vendors and look at all the hot rods." The first 1,000 fans through the gate on Father's Day Sunday receive a Mattel Hot Wheels car.

The Reunion, which begins on June 15 and runs through Father's Day on the 17th, honors the heroes of early drag racing. The NTR track, which opened in 1965, is rich in drag racing history and the perfect setting for popular Reunion events such as the Cacklefest and vintage drag racing. There will also be hundreds of colorful hot rods in the annual SoffSeal Show 'n Shine event for street rodders.

The 5th annual Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion, presented by SoffSeal, is part of the museum's Hot Rod Heritage Series which works to bring to life the sights, sounds and people who made history in the early days of drag racing, land speed racing and the golden age of American car culture.

Unique among motorsports events, the Reunion honors some of the top names in hot rodding from the past and features a fabulous array of cool drag cars, street rods, classics, customs and muscle cars of the historic and present-day hot rod eras.

Daily general admission tickets/pit passes will be available at the National Trail Raceway gate, 2650 National Rd. SW, Hebron, Ohio 43025; phone: 740/928-5706; www.nationaltrailraceway.com. Cost per person: Friday, $20; Saturday, $20; Sunday, $15. Children 15 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
