Bristol Dragway and King College’s student activity board are going to make back to school shopping easier for one student by giving away a new laptop during Fas Mart Street Fights Sept. 8.

King’s student activity board, known as Student Life Activities Committee @ King (S.L.A.C.K), has joined Thunder Valley to host the King College S.L.A.C.K.’s Back to School Bash Thursday night to give students one last break before they hit the books.

Thanks to S.L.A.C.K., a new laptop will be given away to one deserving student during the evening. The student who correctly answers the most trivia questions will take home the prize.

As always, race fans can expect the same exciting street-legal drag racing action they find during any Fas Mart Street Fights Series event. From import tuners to the family grocery getter, all street-legal machines can tackle legendary Thunder Valley.

Gates open at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8 for the S.L.A.C.K.’s Back to School Night. Racing will begin at 6 p.m.

Admission to the Fas Mart Street Fights Series is only $5, while anyone ready to challenge Thunder Valley can do so for only $10.
