The cars and stars of the high-powered, tire-smoking Outlaw Racing Street Car Association will make their first Atlanta Motor Speedway appearance this Friday night at the Castrol GTX Friday Night Drags.
The 150-mph ORSCA cars will be the fastest vehicles ever to make the ground shake down AMS' drag strip.
"We have had a lot of our drivers excited about this weekend's activity at Atlanta Motor Speedway," said series president Johnny Fenn. "We will put on a large display for the fans as some of our toughest competitors will be on. We have heard about the large number of fans that turn out for the Friday Night Drags at AMS and we are excited to be a part making Friday night the biggest drag event ever at AMS."
The high-powered dragsters will highlight a night of drag racing that will include eight divisions of Castrol GTX Friday Night Drags competition. Drivers of all ages can bring any vehicle to the event where they will each be placed in a division with similar type cars and trucks with elimination races run until only one driver remains at the end of the night. The speedway has averaged nearly 225 cars competing each night.
