One-eighth mile street drags are returning to the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot Friday night as good folks from RaceLegal hold their regular meets. From the group’s website:
- RaceLegal.com, the safer and sanctioned track alternative to illegal street racing, was developed with one goal in mind. Saving the needless loss of young lives to an illegal street race gone bad is RaceLegal.com’s mantra. To that end we have been remarkably effective. The concept was one of providing a youth oriented environment in a neutral and centrally located location where we could replicate a street environment, but with safer and sanctioned conditions that insured the safety of our racers and their fans. The under pinning is one of skillfully redirecting illegal street racing behavior to the safer and sanctioned sport of drag racing in a youth oriented setting. As stated above, the results are impressive.
Bring your own hot car or hang out and watch. It’s a great event. $30-$40 to race, with prizes; $10 to watch. 6 p.m. to midnight. More info.
