UTI Friday Night Drags

Friday Night Drags

Everyone at Universal Technical Institute Friday Night Drags knows Chris Thompson and his 1932 Ford Coupe, black with orange and yellow flames firing down the side from a bright yellow grille.

The dream of a perfect season ended in the semifinals for Tyler Cavett (Saginaw, Tex.) and his 1982 Ford Mustang in the Summit Racing Equipment Outlaw Division.

It’s pretty impressive to think that two of the most popular cars at Friday Night Drags are owned by brothers in their mid-20s. They may be young, but Drags is old hat for these two.

For the third straight week more than 300 local car enthusiasts chased glory an eighth-mile at a time at Texas Motor Speedway, and four of those competitors decided to hold onto their bragging rights a second straight week.

Round Three of the six-week journey starts with gates and grandstands opening at 6 p.m. for the annual First Responder Night and fireworks show presented by Snap-on Tools.
