Anyone ready for one last pass through Thunder Valley will have a few extra hours to hit the track during Will Kinzer Foundation for Autism Research Night at the Fas Mart Street Fights season finale on Saturday, Oct. 1.

To thank racers and spectators for another great year at Bristol Dragway, track officials have extended the hours for the event, with racing from 1 p.m. – 9 p.m. Gates open at noon. Even better, the regular $10 racer entry has been reduced to just $5 for this season-ending event. 

One of the Street Fights’ most popular promotions, Local and Loud Night, also returns to help close out the season. Thunder Valley is sure to rock with this concert hosted by Z-Rock 99.3 FM.

This is the final opportunity in 2011 for race fans to see the area’s fastest street legal machines in action. Throw in the quickest two-wheel machines around, and the Will Kinzer Foundation for Autism Research Night is the place to be.

Admission is just $5 for racers and spectators during this special night. Anyone ready to prove themselves as the next John Force should take this chance to challenge the legendary Thunder Valley quarter-mile. 

Gates open at noon on Saturday, Oct. 1, with racing beginning at 1 p.m. Thanks to extended hours, racing will continue until 9 p.m.
