Traxxas invades Indianapolis for the U.S. Nationals with Courtney Force and the Traxxas Ford Mustang Funny Car. Each Labor Day weekend, NHRA racers and fans descend on Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis for the biggest, oldest, richest, and most prestigious drag race in the world. They say that no career is truly complete without a win at drag racing’s grandest event. The fabled strip is regarded by many as one of the smoothest on the circuit, and the stakes are indeed high. This event is the final race of the regular season and sets the 10-driver fields for the upcoming six-race Countdown playoffs. Take a test drive on the Traxxas Try-Me Track.
