NHRA Four-Wide Nationals
Houston Raceway Park
2525 FM 565 South
Houston Raceway Park benefits from incredible atmospheric conditions because of its proximity to Trinity Bay, which feeds the facility cool air. The trackís first NHRA national event, in fall 1988, established HRP as one of the sportís quickest with NHRAís first four-second Top Fuel quarter-mile pass and a new national record. Since then, the track has been host to a dizzying array of record runs, including the first sub-4.5-second Top Fuel quarter-mile pass, by Larry Dixon in 1999.
