Drag Racing Resumes Friday at The Strip at LVMS with Dodge Midnight Mayhem 2011 Season-Opener

March 7, 2011 by  

Drag racing at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will resume on Friday, March 11 with the annual season-opener for Dodge Midnight Mayhem.

Midnight Mayhem is The Strip at LVMS’ safe alternative to illegal street racing. Instead of street racing illegally on the roads of Las Vegas and Clark County, The Strip at LVMS encourages enthusiasts to race each other on the safer confines of its NHRA-sanctioned drag strip.

Now in its 10th year, Midnight Mayhem is open to any licensed driver with proof of insurance and any street-legal car or motorcycle (vehicle must be registered – no temporary tags are permitted).

Driver must provide proof-of-ownership or written authorization from owner. Minors must present a signed parental consent form, which may be obtained by calling The Strip’s office at (702) 632-8213.

All cars are required to pass a basic NHRA safety inspection (properly-inflated tires, battery securely mounted, seat belts, etc.). Cars must be driven through registration and tech inspection (trailered vehicles are not allowed).

Alcohol is not allowed and beer is not sold at the track during Midnight Mayhem. Coolers, alcoholic beverages and weapons are not allowed.

Management reserves the right to alter vehicle and participant eligibility for the betterment of racing and safety.

Entry fee is $15 to race or ride along and $7 admission for spectators. Ride-along passes and restricted-area passes are $10.

Gates for the March 11 event will open at 7 p.m. Racing begins at 8 p.m. and concludes at midnight. Tech card sales and inspection will close at 10 p.m.

For more information, please call The Strip at LVMS at (702) 632-8213 or visit www.LVMS.com. Follow LVMS on Facebook and Twitter.
