Gateway Motorsports Park now has a place on the wildly-popular Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags’ 2017 calendar. Following the successful debut of its Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags event in Tucson, Arizona in January, TEN: The Enthusiast Network announced on May 8 three additional Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags events have been added in 2017, all powered by Dodge. Auto enthusiasts will develop their drag racing skills, view cars of all kinds, and share stories with David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan, hosts of Roadkill, the world’s most-viewed YouTube automotive original series. Roadkill will roar into GMP on September 15-16.
“We had an incredible turnout, with automotive superfans coming to our first Zip-Tie Drags in Tucson from as far away as the East Coast and Canada,” said Roadkill co-host David Freiburger. “I’m super excited to bring even more Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags directly to all the gearheads who were willing to travel across the country to be a part of a unique event like this.”
ROADKILL is a brand based on “Automotive Chaos Theory” that was launched digitally on YouTube and has received more than 250 million video views to date. Today, ROADKILL has expanded beyond digital video into print and events, drawing more than 50,000 spectators and participants to Roadkill Nights in 2016.
The Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags events will include:
Drag racing, with the opportunity to race against HOT ROD’s Freiburger and Finnegan of ROADKILL.
Test ‘n’ tune.
The Hooptie Challenge.
Camping and bonfires.
Participant car registration and spectator tickets are now available at roadkill.com/ziptiedrags.
