Midnight Mayhem Drag Race Invasion January 18th, 2018

In 2019 let’s encourage some friendly and safe racing! O’Reilly Auto Parts Midnight Mayhem at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is the safe alternative to illegal street racing down a quarter mile of track and we should be a part of it. January 18th we’re going to meet up in the Northern parking area. You don’t have to race to participate. Spectators are only $5 to enjoy the sights and sounds of drag racing from 6pm-Midnight. Drivers are $20 after inspection or $15 for anyone who would like to park but not race. The concession stand can provide all the food and beverage we need so don’t worry if you forget the cooler.
