Ford will put the power into the Fas Mart Street Fights Series Thursday, May 26 by sponsoring Ford Night at the popular grassroots racing event.

Street Fights is the perfect opportunity for everyone to put their vehicle to the test. From station wagons and minivans to high-power American muscle and import tuners, there is something for everyone.

Spectators and racers also will have the opportunity to purchase season passes for the 2011 season at the gate. Each pass is good for entry to five 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 interested in purchasing season passes prior to the event, may contact Amy Denton at (423) 989-6930.
