NHRA’s 2017 schedule gets released


The 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule has been released without too many major changes.

Houston and Charlotte swap dates early in the season, with Charlotte’s Four-Wide Nationals still the last weekend in April but with Houston moved ahead instead of behind.

Otherwise the schedule is nearly identical to how it was in 2016.
