On Labor Day weekend, established NHRA stars of the Full Throttle Drag Racing Series will compete in Top Fuel, Funny Car, and Pro Stock Car and Motorcycle looking to clinch the final berths in the Countdown to the Championship playoffs. After weeding out the sluggish from the roster for three days earlier in the week, the tournament culminates in a climactic set of four heats on Monday, September 3. Last year, Antron Brown’s Top Fuel victory made him the first racer to win The Big Go in both a fuel dragster and a Pro Stock motorcycle. Coming off her first big win in Funny Car in Seattle, rookie driver Courtney Force will battle it out for a top spot in the Countdown to the Championship.
Often considered one of the more prestigious races of the Full Throttle Drag Racing Series, Championship Monday kicks off with a track walk - free for all ticket holders - who will have the chance to walk down the historic Lucas Oil Raceway drag strip beside the athletes and smell their motor-oil sweat up close. At 10 a.m., the roar of the crowd drowns out the racers' official introduction as the action gears up within the hour. At the Winner’s Circle Ceremony, Team Full Throttle entertains fans with music, games, and prize giveaways and the champions are crowned with the coveted Wally trophy.
