Following on the heels of this weekend’s Summit Racing Equipment Atlanta Motorama, the fan-favorite O’Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags speeds into its ninth season on the Atlanta Motor Speedway pit lane drag strip next Friday, April 24.
The street-style drag racing series features grassroots competition in 18 different divisions with a massive array of cars, trucks and motorcycles. Competing vehicles range from supercharged cars to stock vehicles and daily drivers. Contenders will battle in a nightly, single-elimination tournament for trophies, bragging rights and season championship points.
Drag racing competition is open to all participants for an entry fee of $20. Vehicles are required to have a working seat belt, and each driver must wear a DOT-approved helmet to race.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags will also include the Show-N-Shine open competition, with seven divisions of judging between cars, trucks and motorcycles. Show-N-Shine participation is $20 and also allows entrants to participate in the weekly Track Cruise around the 1.54-mile racing surface following judging and prior to the start of drag race eliminations. Vehicles from the Show-N-Shine will also be displayed on the front stretch following the Track Cruise for fans to view.
O’Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags will take place each Friday from April 24 through Aug. 28, with the exception of May 22, for a total of 18 dates in 2015.
Unchanged from 2014, pricing for combo tickets to compete in both the Show-N-Shine and the drag racing portion of the evening are again available for $30. Spectator admission is just $8, with children 5 and under admitted free. Exterior parking is free, and infield parking is $20.
