Load your friends in the back of the pickup and head to Bristol Dragway because the Street Outlaws are returning to Thunder Valley in 2018.

The entire 405 Top Ten List from Discovery's Street Outlaws, including the show's biggest stars Big Chief, Murder Nova and the duo of AZN and Farmtruck - along with 22 other street racers from Oklahoma City, New Orleans and across the country - battle for bragging rights and a winner-take-all $200,000, double last year's record number and the largest payout in both series and no prep racing history. Pilgrim Media Group, the series' producer, will once again be filming the event for a Street Outlaws special that will air early 2019.

Admission is free and open to the public on Tuesday, Aug. 21, with gates opening at 11:30 a.m. Filming is scheduled to begin around 1:30 p.m.

A limited amount of parking is available for the event, beginning at $20 with preferred parking options available for $35 or above. Visit http://bit.ly/2m2t2jQ to purchase parking before it sells out. Multiple entrances will be open to accommodate parking.

"Last year's Street Outlaws event was a huge success with a standing room only crowd at Thunder Valley," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager of Bristol Dragway.  "With a record purse and a stacked field, the pressure will be on Big Chief to defend his Bristol title in front of the legions of Street Outlaws fans."

In addition to the race, the Street Outlaws stars will take part in numerous festivities during the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race weekend.
