Texas Motor Speedway’s hottest summer event, Friday Night Drags presented by SCION, returns for its third season of racing beginning July 8. In its effort to continue to reward fans, Texas Motor Speedway has partnered with more than 45 local Roanoke businesses to provide special “2 for 1” coupons good for spectator entry for all six weeks of Friday Night Drags presented by SCION.
Participating stores will have a special Friday Night Drags presented by SCION display where fans can pick up their coupon. For a complete list of participating Roanoke businesses, click here.
“Friday Night Drags presented by SCION has continued to grow in popularity since we started the program in 2009,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “Not only is it a way to get illegal drag racing off the streets but also makes for an exciting evening of racing. From vintage muscle cars to supped-up SCIONS, fans will get to see it all.”
Coupled with “2 for 1” coupons, Texas Motor Speedway is offering up free parking outside Gate 6 and the opportunity to bring in coolers.
Beginning Friday, drag racers from across the Dallas/Fort Worth area will converge onto Texas Motor Speedway, where pit road is transformed into a 1/8-mile drag strip. For six consecutive weeks, racers will compete for championship titles in five divisions (ATI Mission Driven Tuner, Street Bandit, Sportsman, Street Outlaw, Black Smoke Warrior) and the champs will be crowned during the Aug. 12 season finale.
Along with all the drag racing action, fans can check out some of the best in custom and vintage cars plus motorcycles during the Show-n-Shine competition held in the speedway infield’s South Paddock. Car enthusiasts will put their prized possessions on display for fans to enjoy and look to win top honors in Best of Show; Best Current Custom; Best SCION; and Best Motorcycle.
