During the April 5 Taco Bell® Street Fights presented by ZROCK 99.3 event in Thunder Valley, spectators and racers will be looking upward. No, the sky isn’t falling, but cash will be floating from the top of the Bristol Dragway control tower.

One of Street Fights’ most popular promotions, the Money Drop returns in an exciting free-for-all as selected participants will battle to get their hands on the falling fortune. Previous Money Drops have seen participants run wild, even trampling the Bristol Dragway landscaping, in an attempt to catch the dropping dollars. 

To take part in the contest, spectators should register at the Bristol Dragway game trailer. If selected, they will stand in the “drop zone” and prepare for a flood of greenbacks to come their way.

Free money will be the theme for the evening as Taco Bell’s season-long nightly gift card giveaway continues. A Taco Bell® gift card is given away at the end of every Street Fights event and fans can register by simply bringing a Taco Bell® receipt.

Action on the track will be just as furious with the region’s fastest street-legal machinery on display in an all-out battle to determine which is the fastest. Street Fights is not just for the fastest, though, as anyone can tackle Thunder Valley with their own street-legal vehicle.

Bristol Dragway is the perfect environment for anyone with the need for speed to test the performance of their car in a safe, controlled location with knowledgeable staff ready to assist.

Spectators and racers are reminded that season passes for the 2012 season also will be on sale. Each pass is good for entry to five Taco Bell® Street Fights events and there is no limit to the number which can be purchased.

Racer passes are $35 for five events, while spectator passes are $20 for the same number of races. Anyone who would like to purchase passes before coming to Street Fights may contact Amy Denton at (423) 989-6930.

Gates open at 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 5, with racing slated for 6 p.m. Spectator admission is $5, while anyone with a street-legal vehicle can challenge Thunder Valley for only $10. Children 12 and under are free.
