They know from experience, this event is fun for the whole family.

"I grew up at these drag races as a kid, and just packed stands, going to go meet drivers and get autographs," said Brittany Force. "There's nothing like it. Like I said, fans make this sport."

The Nationals will run Friday through Sunday.
