National Hot Rod Association Fall Nationals

Oct. 13-16

Texas Motorplex, 7500 US 287

Drag racing is the quickest and fastest form of motorsport. Cars exceed speeds of 330 mph, engines roar with 10,000 horsepower, and flames blast out of the tailpipes, propelling drivers as quickly as 0-100 mph in less than half a second. All of that can be seen at Texas Motorplex each fall during Fall Nationals. The Motorplex is an all-concrete, quarter-mile drag racing facility that opened in 1986, becoming the first super-stadium built specifically for drag racing.
