TOPEKA (KSNT) – The decision Tuesday night by the Topeka City Council to vote against a resolution that would have allowed the City of Topeka to proceed with the purchase of Heartland Park Topeka will not affect the upcoming 27th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals on May 22-24, 2015.
NHRA is hosting the event as scheduled and say they are looking forward to providing motorsports fans in the area with another thrilling NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event at Heartland Park Topeka on Memorial Day weekend.
NHRA already has operational team members on the ground at the facility making preparations for the race weekend and the advertising and promotional campaign is also underway. It is NHRA’s desire to keep Heartland Park Topeka as an NHRA Member Track to host sportsman events and continue to include the track on the NHRA Mello Yello Series racing schedule into the future and NHRA says they look forward to working with a new ownership group to make that happen.
Tickets for the NHRA Kansas Nationals can be purchased by calling (800) 884-NHRA or online at www.nhra.com/tickets.
