Bristol Dragway’s Fas Mart Street Fights Series heats up with Local and Loud Night on Thursday night, July 8.

First, Thunder Valley will rumble with the roar of the region’s hottest street-legal machines, and then it will rock as Planet Hofmann takes the stage to lay down some of their hottest tracks.

ZRock 99.3 FM brings Planet Hofmann to Bristol for the concert which promises to help the thermometer in Thunder Valley rise a few degrees on Thursday night.

The Street Fights Outlaws return with the eight fastest cars of the night battling it out for bragging rights and the top cash prize. Also, the Baddest Bike competition brings out the fastest two-wheel machines allowed on the road.

Gates open Thursday night at 5 p.m., with racing scheduled for 6 p.m. Admission is $5 for spectators, while anyone can challenge the strip for just $10.
