Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Friday Night Drags and MCR Safety Show-N-Shine announces the Fall Stampede on Sept. 23 and 30. While the weather turns cooler, the pit lane drag strip at AMS gets hotter with two additional nights of drag racing.
The Fall Stampede will feature the same format as this summer’s Friday Night Drags and MCR Safety Show-N-Shine events, with trophies being awarded to winners. Points will not be awarded to drag racers.
The top-10 drivers in each division of the summer series will be honored on Sept. 30, prior to the start of that evening’s eliminations. Trophies and awards will be presented to the drivers that are present for the event.
MCR Safety Show-N-Shine car show judging begins at 6:00 p.m. and practice drag runs begin at 6:15 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 6:30 p.m. with the drag eliminations starting after 9:00 p.m.
All racers ages 16 and 17 must have a fully-executed minor’s release form on file at the speedway prior to competition and forms are available at the Speedway or at www.atlantamotorspeedway.com. Competitors must wear a DOT-approved helmet and have operational seat belts in their vehicle and pass a pre-race safety inspection.
Entry to drag race or for the MCR Safety Show-N-Shine is $20 or competitors can enter both for $30. Spectator admission is only $8 and exterior parking is free, while infield parking is $20.
