WHAT: DRAG RACING is the quickest and fastest form of motorsport. While the kings of the sport, Top Fuel, exceed speeds of 320 mph with 8,000 horsepower, drag racing is inherently a sport that starts at the grass roots, street racing level. All that can be seen at Texas Motorplex!

The first ever Manufacturer’s Shootout will be held all day, Oct. 5, at Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. The Motorplex is an all-concrete quarter-mile drag racing facility that opened in 1986, becoming the first super-stadium built specifically for drag racing. The Motorplex has hosted national event racing since 1986 and has been the site of record-breaking passes, championship-clinching performances and jaw-dropping performances.

The Mustang vs. Camaro, Ultimate Street Party event will feature drag racing, auto cross and more. It will be a day of Ford vs. Chevy before the track is opened to all makes and models for the Ultimate Street Night featuring the Texas 275 cars and the Texas Triple Threat. Both the Texas 275 and the Texas Triple Threat feature a full range of full-bodied cars that blast down an eighth-mile in less than five seconds. Pro Mod Motorcycles will also be on site during this marathon of drag racing and autocross.
