Street Legal Drag Racing

Hot Rod Drag Week brings street legal drag racing back to the Midwest Sunday, Sept. 18 through Friday, Sept. 23, 2022.

Racers will test their mettle over five days and four locations, to see who can win the title of “Fastest Street Car in America.”

2021 winner Dave Schroeder’s 2019 Corvette averaged 6.793 seconds at 198.08 mph!

Drag and Drive!

Hot Rod Drag Week requires each competitor to race five consecutive days across four track locations. Each competitor not only has to endure a relentless racing schedule but is also required to drive the vehicle over 1,000 miles between locations along a pre-set, photo-verified public road route.

While this “drag and drive” event is a competition, spectators and those who ride along will also find an atmosphere of camaraderie, companionship, and the shared desire to see every car run at its best.

AMSOIL is the Official Oil of Drag Week
