Street Fights Set For This Evening (Apr. 28); Free Admission For All College Students With Valid I.D.
Fas Mart Street Fights is still scheduled for tonight (Apr. 28) despite the storms that swept through the area overnight. Gates open this evening at 5 p.m., with racing scheduled for 6 p.m.
Tonight is College Night and admission is free for any student who shows a valid college I.D., while students wishing to race can do so for only $5 with a college I.D.
In addition, Thunder Valley is going to make returning to school in the fall a little easier for one lucky student by helping pay for their books (up to $250) for next semester.
To encourage a little school spirit, Bristol Dragway also will make a donation to the college with the most student participation.
Spectators and racers will be able 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.
Gates open at 5 p.m. on tonight (Apr. 28), with racing set for 6 p.m. Any last-minute schedule changes will be posted on the website. Spectator admission is $5, while anyone with a street-legal car can challenge Thunder Valley for only $10.
