Based on state guidance and what we believe to be best practices for public events at this time, all May Bristol Dragway events are postponed. We will continue to monitor the situation while our team develops new guidelines for racing operations to ensure the safety of all. Updates will be provided on our web site and social channels.

Street Fights Saturday Night gives anyone the chance to tackle the strip in legendary Thunder Valley. All street-legal vehicles, from muscle cars to minivans and motorcycles, are welcome to compete at Street Fights. The schedule will consist of 5 select Saturday events in 2020. Each event will feature Drifting, a Car Show, and much more!
