When the NHRA Nationals pays its biannual visit to Las Vegas, you can count on Terry McMillen doing two things: 1) Sending his 8,000-horsepower dragster down the track at more than 300 miles per hour and 2) staying here at Tahiti Village when he’s through.

As the official resort of Terry and his crew, we’ll be hosting a meet and greet with the top fuel drag racer from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, ahead of his appearance at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Terry will be chatting with fans, signing autographs and posing for photos next to his Amalie Oil dragster from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. beneath the porte cochere. You may even have the opportunity to sit in the cockpit! Terry’s team will unload the dragster at approximately 10 a.m. Refreshments and popcorn will be provided.

If you can’t get enough Terry in the morning, he’ll be making an encore appearance that night during our weekly owners’ night event from 6-8 p.m. at 17˚ South Booze & Bites, our onsite bar and bistro.
