Every February since 1961, fans have flocked to Southern California for one of drag racing's grandest traditions: the unveiling of new cars, drivers, teams, and sponsorships at the season opener, where teams hope to use the season kickoff as a springboard in their pursuit of a spot in the Countdown to the Championship at the fabled Pomona facility known for its outstanding traction, smooth surface, and record performances. This year's event will feature a special tribute to legendary racer Don "the Snake" Prudhomme.
