The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (US) has sold all grandstand tickets for the April 16th-18th (2021) Denso Spark Plugs National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Four-Wide Nationals.

The ‘Las Vegas Motor Speedway’ stated that the State and local officials have allowed the Speedway to host fans at 50 percent capacity for the first of two NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series events in Las Vegas this year. In order to meet all of the COVID-19 requirements, the speedway has ended sales of all grandstand seating. There also will be no walkup sales on the day of the event.

The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) is a drag racing governing body which sets rules in drag racing and hosts events all over the United States and Canada. With over 40,000 drivers in its rosters, the NHRA claims to be the largest motorsports sanctioning body in the world.

Drag racing is a type of motor racing in which automobiles or motorcycles compete, usually two at a time, to be first to cross a set finish line.

The 80,000-capacity Las Vegas Motor Speedway, located in Clark County, Nevada in Las Vegas (US), about 15 miles Northeast of the Las Vegas Strip, is a 1,200-acre (490 ha) complex of multiple tracks for motorsports racing. The complex is owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., which is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Speedway does have a limited number of suite deals remaining for the weekend.

The ‘Las Vegas Motor Speedway’ further stated since the coronavirus dust has still not settled in the United States, face coverings have been made mandatory for fans that have tickets for the event. They will also be required to maintain proper physical distancing and remember that all concession and souvenir transactions are now cashless.

There will be one round of professional qualifying on April 16th followed by two rounds on April 17th and final eliminations on April 18th.

For fans not able to attend, the event will be broadcast on the American pay television channel Fox Sports 1. Ticket information for the 2021 Fall event will be announced later this year.
