The Ford NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals may be scheduled during Father's Day Weekend, but on Friday, June 14, Bristol Dragway ensures entertainment for the whole family - including an event exclusively for the ladies.

Before tackling Thunder Valley's famed nighttime qualifying runs, popular female drivers Brittany Force, Alexis DeJorgia, Leah Pruett and Erica Enders will take on audience questions and discuss the unique challenges they face during a ladies only question and answer session. The free event begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be held in the Guest Welcome Village, located at the bottom of the hill behind the Dragway Tower.

Friday's action then moves to the track as Pro Stock cars and Top Fuel dragsters ignite the night, streaking down the quarter-mile at speeds in excess of 300 mph as flames blaze from their exhaust and track lights gleam off colorful paint schemes. Following this unparalleled, on- track spectacle, the fireworks shift to the sky with a display sure to thrill the youngest members of the family.

Tickets for the family to experience Friday night under the lights at Thunder Valley start at just $30 for adults and $10 for juniors.  Prices increase June 9 so click here or call (423)-BRISTOL or and reserve your seat today!
