Move over Indiana Jones, several women will be searching for treasure in Thunder Valley during the Thursday, April 14 edition of the Fas Mart Street Fights Series at Bristol Dragway.

Thanks to the Ladies’ Night Diamond Dig one lady will come away with a new piece of jewelry.

Buried treasure, in this case a ring, will be placed in a small swimming pool filled with sand. A number of lucky ladies will race against each other, digging through the sand to find the jewelry. If past Diamond Digs are any indication, this event will be well worth watching.

Power Hour also will be interesting on Thursday, as $1000 has been donated to anyone who can defeat Willard Kinzer. Any driver that qualifies in to the Power Hour field will have a chance to win the money. The victory must come during Power Hour eliminations.

Fas Mart Street Fights is the perfect opportunity for everyone to put their vehicle to the test. From station wagons and mini-vans 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. 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.
