Street Legal Drag Racing (No-Hassle Street)

Street racing is dangerous.

But let's be honest. Most of us have done it - engaged in those mini-competitions we occasionally have in traffic. You know, the ones where you find yourself creeping toward the intersection, intently watching the red light and preparing to pounce at the first sign of green. Sometimes there's an 'adversary' in the next lane, sometimes it's just an internal test.

Whether it's a 'self-test' or against an 'adversary', this is far from a safe traffic habit. To this end Lubbock Dragway is continuing with its program to keep street drags alive in Lubbock, but in a much safer and more appropriate facility environment.

Street Legal roars to life every April on the Lubbock Dragway dragstrip. The intent of Street Legal is to provide an opportunity for street racers and drag enthusiasts to race their cars many times during the year at Lubbock Dragway, thereby reducing the amount of street racing in Lubbock. Lubbock Dragway provides a safe, informal environment making it easy and fun for anyone to participate.

Vehicles must be 'Street Legal' with proper working muffler systems - and properly registered and insured. All vehicles must meet NHRA safety regulations by passing a simple tech inspection before racing. Racers must have a valid driver's license and must wear a helmet with a rating of SNELL 85 or higher. Cars, trucks, and motorcycles are all welcome to participate as long as they meet safety regulations.

The same timing and scoring system used for regular drag racing events is utilized for Street Legal - racers use the 'Christmas Tree' light system and receive time slips detailing reaction times and speed. The water box is open for use and long 'burn-outs' are permitted.

Gates open at 8:00 p.m., tech starts at 8:00 p.m. and runs until 12:00 am. Street Legal racing begins at 8:00 p.m. and can run as late as 12:00 am, depending on the number of participants and level of interest. The Street Legal program has seen excellent growth over the past few years, with car counts over 100 on most nights.

Concessions are open throughout the event, however there is no alcohol allowed or sold on-site. An ambulance and safety truck with qualified safety personnel will also be present during the event.

Costs are $15.00 per Car and Driver entry. Pit Side Spectators are welcome to observe the rivalry for only $10.00 each or Spectator Side for $5.00 each. The Street Legal program runs (weather permitting) from April 1 to October 1. Refer to the calendar for updates.

Many of the drag competitors in Lubbock Dragway Sunday Drag Series started out racing their 'everyday' vehicles at Street Legal on Friday nights. It's the perfect opportunity to settle your old rivalries, test your reaction time, find out what speed your vehicle can really reach, or establish yourself as the local 'top gun'.

Take racing off the streets and bring it to Lubbock Dragway where it belongs.
