Two Fas Mart Street Fights Series events keep Thunder Valley rocking this week with events on both Thursday, Sept. 9 and Saturday, Sept. 11.

With school now back in session, Bristol Dragway hosts the CenturyLink Back to School Bash Thursday night to give students an opportunity to make their homework a little easier. Thanks to CenturyLink, a new laptop will be given away to one deserving student during the evening. The student who correctly answers the most trivia questions will take home the prize.

On Saturday, Sept. 11, come celebrate American Pride in Thunder Valley with an afternoon at Ford Patriotism Day. Bristol Dragway officials will give away tickets to the Sept. 25 Fas Mart Thunder Valley Mayhem thrill show during the afternoon.

In addition, anyone who shows their Saturday Street Fight ticket will receive $5 off admission to the American Freedom Spectacular which takes place across the creek at Bristol Motor Speedway the same afternoon.

Race fans also can expect the same exciting street-legal drag racing action they find during any Fas Mart Street Fights Series events. From import tuners to the family grocery getter, all street-legal machines can tackle legendary Thunder Valley.

Gates open at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 9 for the CenturyLink Back to School Bash. Racing will begin at 6 p.m. Gates open at noon on Saturday, Sept. 11 for Ford Patriotism Day. Racing will begin at 1 p.m.

Admission to the Fas Mart Street Fights Series is only $5, while anyone ready to race can do so for only $10.
