Free racing, free tacos and the region’s meanest street-legal cars highlight Taco Bell® Night Thursday, Sept. 6 during Taco Bell® Street Fights at Bristol Dragway.

Anyone who brings a Taco Bell® receipt to Street Fights on Thursday can challenge legendary Thunder Valley for free. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who has dreamed of experiencing the thrill of drag racing to do so in a safe, controlled environment.

Any street-legal vehicle can race during Taco Bell® Street Fights, and thanks to free racer entry with a Taco Bell® receipt, Thursday is the perfect time.

Additionally, the Taco Bell® Truck will be on hand and stocked with free Doritos® Locos tacos for those in attendance. Since 2009, the Taco Bell® Truck spends its summers driving around the country giving out free tacos at concerts, sporting events, local community events and more. The newest sensation from Taco Bell® is sure to be a hit with the Street Fights crowd. Tacos will be given away while supplies last at Bristol Dragway on Thursday.

Finally, the popular Taco Bell® gift card giveaway continues at each Street Fights event during the 2012 season. Anyone who brings a Taco Bell® receipt can register to win a Taco Bell® gift card which will be given away at the end of the night.

Power Hour also returns during Taco Bell® Night. Power Hour features the quickest eight cars of the evening squaring off in an all-out challenge to determine which machine is king of Thunder Valley.

Anyone can take on the famous quarter-mile in their car, while their friends cheer from the grandstands. In a tough economy, an evening at Taco Bell® Street Fights is an obvious choice.

Spectator admission is just $5, while anyone with a street-legal car can challenge Thunder Valley for only $10. Anyone who presents a Taco Bell® receipt at the gate can race for free.
