Hundreds of street legal drag cars will flock to the Atlanta Motor Speedway, Friday, July 20 for a night of exciting drag racing during the Kuhmo Tires Street Warriorz national tour.
The tour will give event participants the opportunity to strap into their high performance vehicle and rocket down AMS' eighth-mile drag strip. Everything from high-dollar sports cars to barely-running junkers can be found racing down AMS' pit road drag strip.
"To see a national event utilize our drag strip after one year of existence is exciting," said AMS vice president of events Brandon Hutchison. "The Kuhmo Tires Street Warriorz event should offer a unique array of activities for everyone in attendance and AMS is happy to be the host site."
Cars will be paired with like vehicles and there will be no elimination drag races or pre-race technical inspection. Participants will be encouraged to line up against each other for grudge matches.
For those not interested in pushing their car to the limit, plenty of spectator events will be on hand in addition to the drag races. With a smoky burnout contest, loudest stereo and ugliest car contest, a car cram and live music, the Kuhmo Tires Street Warriorz event will have something for everyone.
The event is open to anyone and any vehicle provided they have a valid driver's license, helmet and completed waiver. Competitors age 16 and 17 must have a fully-executed minors release form prior to competition (forms available at www.streetwarriorz.com.) Gates will open at 4 p.m. and the activities will continue past midnight.
