Join us at the track this Friday Night for the first edition of “Street Drags,” presented by Sea Foam Motor Treatment. It an opportunity for you to get together with those friends you may have not seen at the track since last fall. It’s an opportunity for you to get that project car on the track for the first time, or an opportunity to clean off the dust that’s on the car or the driver.

Muscle cars, cycles, open class, ATV’s, Pickups – 4×4 or 2WD, Mustangs, Family Sedans, Tuners, Mini-Vans, High Skool and many “performance brackets” are waiting for your car to be entered into competition. If it drives, you can race it at Street Drags!

There will also be a fun novelty race, where the second car over the line wins the race!

Bring out the kids early for KQ98 Kids’ Cruiser Night, as kids age 5-11 will get to ride in a race car around the 5/8th mile track, as time allows! Kids must sign up at the Souvenir Trailer at the top of the grandstand entrance during qualifying.

Action took place in all divisions during the last race – at the Frostbuster, some fenders were bent, most teams loaded up their cars at the end with few imperfections, and there were event a couple very close side-by-side finishes! Will this week be any different? Expect the unexpected, but expect to have fun – so bring family or friends along to share in the action!
