Midnight Madness is the safe alternative to illegal street racing.

It’s affordable social entertainment: Not just a street-legal drag race, each Friday night Midnight Madness is a lifestyle event, featuring special themes, DJs, drifting presented by Mirror Finish, attractions and social activities. The concession stand offers discounted prices on popular food items.

$25 to race.

REMAINING SCHEDULE: June 26, July 24, August 21, Sept. 11, Sept. 25, Oct. 16, Nov. 6.

Play on a big-league field: Midnight Madness participants are welcome to race their street-legal cars on the same track used by the stars of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series at speeds in excess of 320 miles per hour.

It’s safe and legal: Midnight Madness is open to all licensed drivers and any street-legal car or motorcycle. All vehicles must be self-starting and no race cars are allowed. All vehicles must pass a safety inspection before being allowed to compete. All drivers must present a valid driver’s license at the time of technical inspection. Participants 16 and 17 years of age must have a parental consent form completed prior to competition. A complete fire and safety crew is on duty at all times during Midnight Madness.
