"Race the Strip, Not the Street” this weekend
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. (Sept. 1, 2011) - Do you have a need for speed? Have you ever wanted to open your vehicle up and see what it could do? Well now is your chance. The NHRA Drags: Street Legal Style presented by AAA is open to the public at Auto Club Dragway, Saturday, Sept. 3.
For just $20, experience what a professional drag racer feels, from the staging lanes to the Christmas Tree. At the starting line, be ready, get set, and go. Test your lead foot when the light goes green…and we’ll see you at the finish line.
Technical inspection and check-in starts at noon on Saturday and racing begins at 2 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. under the lights.
Street legal racing at Auto Club Dragway is the perfect way to show off your skills in a safe, controlled environment. Racers must have a street legal car, a valid driver’s license, and proof of registration and insurance.
You don’t have to race to have a good time. Spectators are encouraged to join in on the fun and cheer on their favorite “stock” cars.
