Goodguys 16th Nitro Nationals Nostalgia Drags Brings Nitro Drag Racing under the lights to Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Las Vegas, NV - The Goodguys Vintage Drag Racing Association returns to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on April 30 & May 1. Once home to the quickest and fastest run in Goodguys Vintage racing history, The Strip will again play host to hundreds of racecars, hot rods and customs, all of which will be competing for trophies, awards and prize money. Whether you are "showin" or "goin" or just "spectatin," your entire family will want to attend this extraordinary event at LVMS. During the day you'll want to stroll around and take in acres of hot rods and swap meet displays as well as the popular Manufacturers Midway. Take some time to meet the drivers and watch closely as the crews prepare their racecars for competition. The high- speed Top Fuel dragsters, classic-bodied Nitro Funny Cars and the wild & wicked Gassers will headline the action while cooler evening temperatures will keep the pace swift as well as exciting. That's right, this time the racing will be held UNDER the LIGHTS during two fun-filled nights of nitro- powered, fire-breathing mayhem. You've craved seeing those old-time dragsters and hot rods and now they're back at The Strip. Nobody brings you vintage drag racing action quite like Goodguys and there will be a plethora of daytime and nighttime rodding & racing activities at the 16th Goodguys Nitro Nationals.

March Meet winner Jim Murphy will lead a stellar line-up of Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Car veteran Randy Walls will compete along with a full field of Nitro Funny Cars. Hundreds of other revved-up racers will compete in a dozen additional exciting nostalgia drag racing classes too.
