Outlaw Street Drags

LEGAL drag racing and a car show! Thursday nights in Cedar Rapids!

If you are interested in legal drag racing, showing off your car to local car enthusiasts, or doing both, this is the event for you! Bring your daily driver or hobby car out– if you can drive it here we have a class for you.

In this double elimination, bracket-style drag race, you will be placed with vehicles similar to yours and make a 300′ run in separate lanes. There are over 18 different brackets, and you can enter in multiple brackets.

Even if you aren’t victorious after your first run, you still get another chance, and can even buyback! This is the easy, affordable way to drag race.
