Event Preview: Street Car Takeover Bristol

Historic Bristol Dragway is ready to be rocked by throngs of street cars when the Street Car Takeover Bristol event comes to town. August 28-29 there will be wicked street cars of all shapes and sizes rolling through the gates to put on a show, and you can catch all the action live RIGHT HERE on Floracing when racing begins.

The Street Car Takeover series has established itself as the biggest thing in grassroots drag racing. Each event brings out some amazing cars that fill the variety of classes the Street Car Takeover offers. Fans enjoy the events because it allows them to check out two different kinds of racing in the same day.

At the Street Car Takeover Bristol, there’s going to be tons of on-track action that will keep the most hardcore drag racing fans entertained. The roll racing portion of the event will feature the Mild Street 140 class, Modified Street 150 class, and the King of the Bakery class. After the roll racing is done, the drag racers will take over with everything from index racing to some all-out heads-up action. There will also be a car show for fans to check out when there isn’t racing on the track.

If you want to see some of the fastest real street cars on the East Coast battle it out you’ll want to check out Street Car Takeover Bristol. All of the action from Bristol Dragway will be shown live RIGHT HERE on Floracing August 28-29. This broadcast is brought to you by TITAN Fuel Tanks, Howards Cams, Flying A Motorsports, Classic Instruments, and FST Carburetors.
