It’s affordable social entertainment: Not just a street-legal drag race, each Friday night Midnight Madness is a lifestyle event, complete with special themes, DJs, a drifting pit, attractions and social activities. The concession stand offers discounted prices on popular food items. Admission: $15 for spectators, $25 to race. Spectators age 12 and under are admitted free.
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.
SAFETY GUIDELINES: All motorcycle riders must wear a helmet and a riding jacket of some sort with jeans. Motorcycles racing in excess of 135 mph need full leathers. Cars do not have to be completely street-legal but must be self-starting and able to drive through the staging lanes. Driver needs a helmet (Snell certification 2015 or newer) if car is quicker than 13.99 seconds. Go-Karts, ATVs, or any other vehicles not approved by NHRA are prohibited. Cars running 11.49 sec. or quicker (or 135 mph+) need a roll bar — or better depending how fast car is. Any built Chevrolet or GMC diesel who plans on running in 4wd needs tie-rod sleeves.
