Channel your inner speed demon and experience the thrill of racing against other drivers on the Tucson Dragway during this Side-by-Side Dragster Race!
Enjoy the excitement of flying down the Tucson Dragway and hitting top speeds during this Side-by-Side Dragster Race!
Begin your day with classroom, in-car, and on-track instruction from Frank Hawley and his staff. Then, move on to the driving portion where you will start with a 1/8-mile warmup run followed by 2 quarter-mile runs. These will be single runs with no competition to properly prepare you for the racing challenge. After completing the first half of the day and proving that you can properly perform full quarter-mile runs, it will finally be time to get behind the wheel and race against other drivers!
Make no mistake about it, this is a real race! Drivers will attend a meeting where they will receive further instruction and tips on how to get quicker reaction times and more detail on the functions of the timing system. You will then compete in a tournament style elimination just like the professional drivers. The more times that you win, the more runs you get to make!
Come out and compete against other drivers for the chance to earn bragging rights and be crowned champion during this once-in-a-lifetime Side-by-Side Dragster Race!
