GLENDORA, Calif. – FOX Sports will offer comprehensive live Labor Day weekend coverage of the prestigious 62nd annual NHRA Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway in Clermont, Ind.

FS1 will air highlights from U.S. Nationals qualifying Sunday, Sept. 4 (Noon and 5 p.m. ET). Coverage continues on FS1 with two hours of live eliminations Monday, Sept. 5 (11 a.m. ET), before moving to FOX at 1 p.m. ET for a three-hour show.

Monday’s final round on FOX marks the first time in history the historic event will air live on broadcast television.

Eight-time Top Fuel champion Tony Schumacher leads all active racers with nine wins at Indy (tied with Pro Stock legend Bob Glidden for most all time), while Pro Stock pilot Greg Anderson is next among active drivers with six victories.

NHRA’s six-race playoff gets underway Sept. 15-17 with the NHRA Carolina Nationals from zMAX Dragway in Charlotte live on FS1, but not before the coveted Wallys are handed out at the race known as ‘the Big Go’ at Lucas Oil Raceway.

Dave Rieff and two-time NHRA Funny Car champion Tony Pedregon call the action, with Bruno Massel and Jamie Howe working the pits.
