Season's First Power Hour Headlines Thursday's Roadrunner Market Street Fights
Power Hour highlights Domino's Pizza Night at the season's first Thursday night Roadrunner Markets Street Fights as the region's toughest street-legal rides take on the legendary Thunder Valley strip.
Pitting the night's eight fastest rides in a best-two-out-of-three grudge match, Power Hour rewards the victors with a trophy declaring their dominance at Bristol Dragway. At the end of the 2014 season, Bristol Dragway officials tally the points of all Power Hour participants with the year's fastest rides taking home a Championship jacket and trophy.
Prior to eliminations, two qualifying rounds set the ladder of eight cars. The ninth and tenth qualifiers are placed on standby in the event any of the qualified entries are unable to make the first round.
Racers are also rewarded for their ability to conquer the tree in the Roadrunner Reaction Time contest which gives the night's best reaction a $25 gift card good for gas and merchandise at any Roadrunner Markets Shell location.
Spectators can win gift cards as well through participation in the nightly games, and they are able to take home a limited-edition Roadrunner Markets Street Fights t-shirt by completing a short survey while at the track.
