Las Vegas Motor Speedway announces busy 2019 Strip schedule

Tim Disspain | Pit Stop Radio News LVMS

One of Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s busiest tracks is set for another action-packed schedule in 2019.

The Strip at LVMS will host a total of 68 events in the coming year, including the DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals April 5-7 and the NHRA Nevada Nationals Oct. 31-Nov. 3. In addition, the iconic drag strip will host 12 LVMS Bracket Series events, 11 LVMS Jr. Dragsters competitions, a dozen O’Reilly Auto Parts Midnight Mayhems and eight Open Test-n-Tune sessions.

The Strip also will be the backdrop for NHRA Division 7 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events April 12-14 and Nov. 7-10, the NHRA Division 7 ET Finals Oct. 3-6 and the NHRA Division 7 Jr. Finals Sept. 20-22. If that’s not enough, the Spring Fling Million returns April 15-20, Street Car Super Nationals will be back Nov. 19-24, Import Face Off events are set for March 17 and Dec. 15, and the West Coast Hot Rod Association will bring The Battle to The Strip on June 1.

One major format change for the upcoming season involves the O’Reilly Auto Parts Midnight Mayhem program, which will move seven of its 12 sessions from Fridays to Wednesdays in 2019. Mayhem also is returning to its roots, allowing only street-legal vehicles with treaded tires at its dozen sessions. High-performance vehicles equipped with racing slicks can run at eight Friday Open Test-n-Tune sessions that have been added to the calendar.

The “Showcase/Grudge Top 10” class has been eliminated from the Mayhem events, but those vehicles may run during the Friday Test-n-Tunes. The changes are designed to give local racers and car enthusiasts more access to The Strip than ever before, with streamlined track setup and prep allowing drivers to have more passes down the track each night.

The Strip has been named the NHRA Division 7 LODRS Track of the Year for six consecutive years and seven times overall and was honored as the division’s Most Improved Track this year after expanding from two to four lanes. Tickets The Strip’s 2019 NHRA events may be purchased by calling the LVMS ticket office at 800-644-4444 or logging on towww.LVMS.com.
