ST. LOUIS (Sept. 30, 2023) – For the third straight year and the seventh time in the past eight seasons, the NHRA and officials at World Wide Technology Raceway announced a sellout crowd for Saturday’s qualifying action at the NHRA Midwest Nationals.

The standout fanbase once again packed the St. Louis facility during the final two rounds of qualifying on Saturday, as the massive crowd enjoyed an action-packed day of racing during the third race of the NHRA Countdown to the Championship playoffs.

Minus the COVID season in 2020, World Wide Technology has hosted a Saturday sellout every season since 2016, as St. Louis continues to be a hotbed for NHRA drag racing.

“Today’s reserved-seat sellout at World Wide Technology Raceway is a testament to the continued support of St. Louis and the Metro East racing community,” said Chris Blair, WWTR’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. “Year after year, our fans prove this area is one of the greatest racing regions in the United States. They love NHRA drag racing and know this event always delivers edge-of-your-seat excitement.”

It is the eighth sellout crowd for the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series during the 2023 season after previously announcing capacity crowds at Gainesville, Phoenix, Denver and Reading.

Eliminations for the 12th annual NHRA Midwest Nationals begin at 11:00 a.m. CT on Sunday at World Wide Technology Raceway.
