The raceway's popular program gives people a safe, legal, controlled environment in which to drag race their cars, away from city streets.

Anyone with a driver's license can compete, providing their vehicle or motorcycle passes a simple technical inspection. All gas-propelled vehicles must have mufflers (if applicable). Almost any type of street-legal vehicle is eligible to run on the drag strip.
