Street legal rides and money fly at Bristol Dragway's Sept. 18 Roadrunner Markets Street Fights.

The fan-favorite Money Drop promotion highlights the final Thursday night event of 2014, as participants make a mad grab for cash falling from the Thunder Valley sky. Contestants may enter to participate by completing a survey during the event.

Speed further dominates the straight strip Thursday night as the year's fastest rides are crowned in the season's final Power Hour. While Bristol, Tenn.'s Matthew Ballou has already claimed victory in the Car division, the Bike division championship is still up for grabs with four local racers vying for the title. Jim Cook (Bristol, Tenn.), Chris Johnson (Elizabethton Tenn.), Danny Avery (Elizabethton, Tenn.) and Chris Friis (Kingsport, Tenn.) face off in head-to-head grudge matches with the winner taking home the title and the 2014 trophy.

Along with Power Hour, all racers may feed their need for speed with spots in the 150 MPH Club up for grabs.  Any racer who completes a run at, or quicker than, the night's 150 mph requirement receives a special club decal and reserves their place as one of the fastest rides in Thunder Valley.

Gates open Thursday at 5 p.m. with racing starting at 6 p.m. Cost to participate is $10 for racers, $15 for trailered cars and $5 for spectators.
