Race the Strip not the Street!


Have you got a muscle car that can out run anyone?

 …or maybe the hottest sport compact on the block? Prove once and for all that you've got what it takes under the hood legally and safely by taking your ride to the dragstrip and race the strip, not the street. It's safe, it's fun, and it won't put you in jail. The only thing you risk is having fun.

At a "test and tune" event you are given the chance to practice your starting procedure, learn how your car reacts to tuning adjustments, and make passes down the track without the pressure of competition.


Schedule: Grudge racing and time trials only. No bracket racing. Check Dragstrip Schedule for dates & times (appears as "Test & Tune" or "T&T").
