Top drag racer Terry McMillen calls Tahiti Village home during NHRA Nationals at LV Motor Speedway

When the NHRA Full-Throttle Drag Racing series pays its biannual visit to Las Vegas, you can count on two things: Terry McMillen sending his 8,000-horsepower dragster down the track at more than 300 miles per hour and staying right here at Tahiti Village when he’s done.

Meet top-fuel drag racer Terry McMillen this Tuesday at Tahiti Village.

As the official resort of Terry and his crew, we’ll be hosting a meet and greet with the top fuel drag racer from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Wednesday, Oct. 24. Terry will sign autographs, and you’ll have the opportunity to see the dragster he’ll race at the 12th annual Big O Tires NHRA Nationals Oct. 25-28 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

If you can’t make it to Tahiti Village in person, don’t worry. We are having a Google Hangout so you can watch the event online. We will tweet a link on our Twitter page as soon as the Hangout starts. Whether you attend the event or watch it online, you will have the opportunity to participate in separate drawings for four free race tickets and a two-night stay at Tahiti Village.

If you miss his appearance here this year, Terry will be back twice in 2013, in early April for the NHRA Winter Nationals and once again in October.

Those of you watching online and who want to enter one or both of the drawings should send us your name in an email to We will announce a winner the same day.

    Where on property will Terry and the car be? Will it be up front or in back. I’ll be there, thanks.

  • Kyle Bannister

    Sounds fun, we are owners here. We won’t be able to make it this week but will we be able to see the car and meet Terry next year at Tahiti Village around race time? We may plan ahead for that one. Kyle

  • That’s a great question, Kyle. We’re sorry you won’t be able to attend the meet and greet with Terry this Wednesday, but the good news is he’ll be here again next year. Twice. Terry comes to Las Vegas for races twice annually and stays right here at Tahiti Villge when he’s in town. We hope to see you then.

  • Thank you for asking, Bill. You can find Terry and his dragster in front of the main lobby building from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Wednesday. He’ll be signing autographs, and you can enter our drawings to win four tickets to this weekend’s NHRA event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and a two-night stay at Tahiti Village. We appreciate your interest.
