The event will feature 1/8th mile drag racing for pre-’73 cars (with the lanes open all event long and old school flag starts at various times), a large car show area featuring pre-'73 customs, hot rods, street rods, and race cars, nitro cackles all night long, the 2013 Arizona Drag Racing Hall of Fame inductions, vendor and swap meet areas, a great collection of nostalgia dragsters, funny cars, gassers and other race cars on display in a special mall area, and the event-ending Nitro Blast with many historic race cars lighting up the night and burning a lot of nitro together in front of the stands.
Best of all, the 2013 event will again be a laid back, low key affair where racers and old friends can spend a lot of time telling each other how fast they used to be while looking at some historic cars in the pits and on the track!
The event will again be held at Merle's Southwestern International Raceway. The track's shops and concessions will be open during the event on Saturday night and during the free Friday Night Meet & Greet.
The free Friday Night Meet and Greet will also be at the track from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will give spectators the chance to meet drivers and car owners and to see and hear some nitro cars. It will be a preview of Saturday night’s non-stop action.
On Saturday the gates will open at 4 p.m. and the action will start at 6 p.m.
Pre-'73 race cars, street rods, hot rods, and custom cars may park inside the pits in the special car show display area at no extra charge on Saturday night. You pay only the $10 regular admission. If you run down the race track, a tech card is $20.
