Ultimate Street Nights
In addition to the more than 20 Fast Friday street legal events at Texas Motorplex in 2013, there will also be one feature Saturday night of Ultimate Street Racing each month between May and November.
The gate and racing times will be later. The racing will be quicker and faster. The action will be even more heated.
Gates for the Ultimate Street Nights will open at 7 p.m. and racing will take place between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.
Ultimate Street Nights will be on Saturday Nights on May 18, June 15, July 20, August 17, October 5 and October 12. On May 18 & August 17 Ultimate Street Night will also feature the Texas 275 cars.
“The 275 cars will be out a few times and they really put on a show,” Texas Motorplex Competition Director, Eric McClelland, said. “The 275 cars run 1/8th mile in 4.70-seconds and they are exciting to watch. Some of them are even street legal cars.
“Overall we’re excited about the new Saturday night program because it’s easier for people who work to come out. It’s a fun night to stay out late and race and we’re going to have a show-and-shine area in addition to racing so people can show off their rides.”
Ultimate Street Nights will be just $20 to race, and $10 to watch. Racing is open to anyone with a valid driver’s license and a street legal car.
The six-event series will also help determine the high school participants representing Texas Motorplex at the Oct. 18-21 Summit E.T. Finals. The top high school talent will earn a place on the Motorplex team and will compete for big prizes on the region’s biggest racing stage.
Texas Motorplex was the first all-concrete stadium-style drag racing facility ever constructed. Built in 1986, Texas Motorplex has been the place of many drag racing milestones and world record performances. The Billy Meyer-owned facility hosts a number of racing and car show events between March and November each year and also features the Champion’s Club – an 11,000 square-foot facility – that serves fully catered events throughout the year.
