Bristol Dragway is set to host the country's most thunderous Father's Day weekend celebration as the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) schedule, released this week, confirmed the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals remain in their traditional spot on the 2015 calendar.

"Spending Father's Day weekend in Thunder Valley has quickly become customary for many of our guests," said Jerry Caldwell, general manager and executive vice president of Bristol Dragway. "Our fans tell us that gifting Dad a weekend filled with 8,000-horsepower engines, racing at speeds of more than 300 mph and access to some of the world's greatest drivers is one of the best presents they've ever given."

However, those attending the June 19-21 event should plan to honor more than their dads, favorite drivers and start of summer. In 2015, the legendary straight strip also celebrates 50 years of thunder in the Valley.

"Bristol Dragway has a storied and prestigious history," said Caldwell. "Throughout the past 50 years, Thunder Valley has been home to incredible accomplishments in the field of motorsports and memorable feats by some of the world's top drivers. We look forward to celebrating those moments in our history with the people who have made it possible - our loyal fans."
