No racing experience is required to race a dragster!

When you arrive at the drag strip, you’ll have a brief session covering safety instructions, racing lines and vehicle dynamics.  A tour of the track with your drag racing instructor and a test run will get you familiar with the distance markers and the feel of the car.

Each run includes a smoky burn-out as you launch off the starting line. Your first run will be to the 330 ft mark. Next, you’ll race to the 1/8 mile and finally your third pass will cover the full 1/4 mile hitting speeds up to 130mph.

This experience will pack a lifetime of adrenaline-pumping fun into a few seconds as you put the pedal to the floor and launch the dragster off the starting line.
