It’s a double header weekend of FUN is highlighted with Thursday Night Street Drags on May 16th and the 2024 Budweiser Season Opener on Saturday Afternoon, May 18th!

Street Drags are a great opportunity for anyone to drag race their own car, truck, suv, van, motorcycle, atv on our 300-foot dragstrip utilizing the front stretch of the racetrack. Competitors will be broken into brackets, so you will race with vehicles like yours! Side by side fun in your own lane! We always like to say, if it has wheel, we have a bracket for you!

The fun doesn’t end there! Also, part of every Street Drag event is our Shine ‘n Show car show contest where you can showcase your hot rod as well as the Burnout Contest where you can be the burnout champion for the night!
