General Info
The 40th Annual Nats is proud to feature the tribute to the 1970 Model year cars, Tribute to the TV Series “Dukes of Hazzard” and 50th Anniversary of the E-Body. A special display of these vehicles will be parked together. Special editions and rare collectibles will also be featured. Featured will be the General Lee Jumping for a record along with some of the cast members. Tom Wopat (Luke), Catherine Bach (Daisy) and others.

Drag Racing at the 40th Annual Nats always brings out some of the best and fastest iron that the Pentastar ever
produced. Competition is fierce! From Max-Wedges, Hemi’s, small-blocks, big-blocks, the Gen III Hemi’s, turbofours and V-10’s, all will compete in side-by-side drag racing action. See the Nostalgic Shoot-Out where Max Wedge and Hemi cars will compete, which will keep all the audience on its feet. The show, racing and judging, the largest all-Mopar Midway in the world and more than 1,800 Swap Meet spaces, make this a weekend to remember.

The 40th Annual Nats is an event you just can’t afford to miss! Be able to blog on Dodge Red Line, see many major
manufacturers in attendance. From Dodge business coupes to coupes than mean business, from Vipers to 300’s to
Prowlers to GT Cruisers and the SRT products along with the Hellcat, Demon and Red Eye… see it all August 7th –
9th at National Trail Raceway, Columbus, Ohio. Often imitated… never duplicated, it’s the 40th Annual Nats… It’s going to be blast!

of Interstate I-70 at the Kirkersville exit. From the north, take I-75 south to the State Hwy 15 exit. Go south, and the road turns into US- 23.
