NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals

Friday, October 9 - Sunday, October 11, 2020
NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series

As part of NHRA's revised 2020 schedule in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NHRA and Bristol Motor Speedway have postponed the 2020 NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, originally scheduled for June 19-21, 2020, the new date of the 2020 NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals is scheduled for October 9-11, 2020.

Due to the condensed NHRA schedule for the remainder of 2020, we do know that our event will shift to two days of professional competition rather than three. Our top priority is to reschedule the NHRA event in Bristol for a future date, and to do so in a way that continues to protect the health and wellbeing of all involved.

Ticketholders on file have three options:

  • Use your tickets for the postponed event.
  • Receive a credit for the full amount paid to date plus an additional 20%. The 120% credit can be applied toward admissions, including, but not limited to, tickets, camping, fan hospitality and access passes for the 2021 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event in Bristol.
