Michael Harrigan’s “Fools Gold” Nitro Funny Car will go head to head with The Entertainer for some adrenaline pumping side by side drag racing.
David Douthit, all the way from Colorado Springs, CO, in the Black Pearl Jet Funny Car will be hitting that familiar Metallica beat during pre-stage. Matching up with The Black Pearl is the CrossFire Jet Dragster, owned and driven by Dennis Roslansky from Benton, KY. The Black Pearl and CrossFire are known to bring the heat with their incredible chest-pounding, flame throwing, ear deafening performance all over the US.
Four Nitro-burning Harleys bringing back the long burnouts and flying down the track one wheel!
Six Nostalgia Front Engine Dragsters putting it down on the track. These fan-favorite beauties slingshot off the starting line at 1500 horsepower, screaming down the track at 165 in 1/8 mile. The real thrill is that all it’s power is situated directly between the driver’s legs.
