Two-wheel thunder invades Bristol Dragway during Bike Night on Thursday, May 6, while anyone looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift should look no further than Thunder Valley on Saturday, May 8.

Bristol Dragway serves as the kick-off for Johnson City’s Thunder in The Mountains Motorcycle Rally. Thanks to event sponsor, Smith Brothers’ Harley-Davidson, anyone through the gates on a motorcycle will be able to race for only $5.

 Mindset and Planet Hoffman also will be on hand and will play live music throughout the evening. While Thursday is Bike Night, cars still are welcome to race.

Join the fun in Thunder Valley on Saturday, May 8 as Mother’s Day comes a day early. Promotions include the blindfolded make-over contest. Whoever can give their mom the best make-over wins a package of great gifts for Mother’s Day.

Also in action are the Fas Mart Street Fights Outlaws and the Baddest Bike competition. The fastest cars and motorcycles in the region take to the track to prove who is the fastest.

Gates open at 5 p.m. on Thursday night, with racing at 6 p.m. On Saturday, gates open at noon, with racing slated for 1 p.m. Spectators can enter for only $5, while anyone can race for just $10.
