ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The NHRA announced today that AAA Insurance and the Auto Club of Southern California will be the title sponsors of the return of hot rod racing to the St. Louis area.
The NHRA’s Midwest Nationals are scheduled for September 28th through the 30th at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois — the former Gateway International property.
Driver Robert Hight spoke about the enthusiasm behind the tour’s return to the city, during Saturday’s KMOX Auto Show with Greg Damon, “It’s right in the heart of the United States and we love coming there. I’ve been fortunate to attend the St. Louis Auto Show the last two years for Triple-A. All you hear from fans is: Get back to Gateway. We want you back.”
Hight said the Gateway drag strip is a favorite amongst drivers on the circuit.
