The Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host two events in the 2021 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series, the National Hot Rod Association announced Wednesday

The first of the events is scheduled for April 16-18 with the DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals -- the fourth of 22 events being held in the championship series. Later, from October 29-21, the speedway will host the penultimate NHRA event of the season -- the Dodge NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil.

Both events will be held on speedway's four-lane drag strip -- also known as "The Strip." The Strip is one of just two drag strips in the nation to feature four-lane drag racing.

“We’re excited that 2021 will bring back the power of the world’s fastest cars to Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” LVMS President Chris Powell said. “The Strip is truly one of the country’s most iconic drag strips, and we love showcasing it on national television through our pair of Camping World Drag Racing Series events each year.”
