Thanks to fan demand Power Hour returns to Thunder Valley for Taco Bell Street Fights presented by KEDPlasma July 5.  

Power Hour gives the night’s toughest street-legal machines and their owners an opportunity to flex their muscles, while also taking home bragging rights.

With the new Power Hour format that has been implemented, the point structure creates more focus on winning.  Racers can now build up points for winning during the season.  The top drivers with the most points will be awarded prizes at the end of the season.

KEDPlasma will be at Street Fights handing out information about how to help save a life through plasma donation.  Their motto “Keep Life Flowing” exemplifies their mission to help those who suffer.

Anyone with a street-legal machine can compete at Bristol Dragway and have a shot at winning the title of baddest driver of the night.  Taco Bell Street Fights gives racers the opportunity to race in a safe environment and experience the thrill of what is Thunder Valley
