NHRA Route 66 Nationals
A New Frontier





The National Hot Rod Association, or NHRA, oversees most of the drag racing events in the United States. Each year, they host the NHRA Route 66 Nationals in Joliet, Illinois.

This event features the best-of-the-best. Names include Tony Schumacher, John Force, and Justin Schriefer. This multi-day event brings racers from across the country to compete for their spot in the winner's circle. Oh... and this sport ain't just for the guys!

To mark this special occasion, AC Variety added a photographer to the coverage. Jessica Leighamara brings her camera to capture moments in a new light.
