Thanks to Taco Bell®, May 24 may be the perfect chance to race for anyone who has been tempted to test their ride during Taco Bell® Street Fights at Bristol Dragway.

For those who have yearned to take on drag racing’s most historic track, anyone with a Taco Bell receipt will be able to race for $5 on Taco Bell® Night on May 24.

Long regarded as one of NHRA’s “crown jewel” facilities, Thunder Valley is the ultimate playground for those who want to get a taste of speed and excitement, while racing in a safe and controlled environment.

Taco Bell® supports the mission of Street Fights by encouraging drivers to race their cars on the track and not the street.

Not only will a receipt allow any licensed driver to hit the strip for just $5, on that date, it also will register them for a Street Fights season pass, good for admission for the entire 2012 season.

During the evening, fans will be able to participate in the Beefy Nacho Burrito Friend contest. One friend will roll another friend in a giant Beefy Nacho Burrito, complete with jumbo toppings. The team to complete the human burrito fastest will win admission to the next event and a Beefy Nacho burrito.

Each guest will be given a punch card at the gate. Each time the fan buys a Beefy Nacho Burrito and a Pepsi, the card is punched every time this combo is bought. Once a fan has five punches, they can bring their card to Street Fights anytime between May 31 - July 5 to receive a free Pepsi item. The card also gives them a chance to enter for tickets to the IRWIN Tools Night Race in August at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Finally, the popular Taco Bell gift card giveaway continues at each Street Fights event during the 2012 season. Anyone who brings a Taco Bell® receipt can register to win a Taco Bell® gift card which will be given away at the end of the night.

Anyone can take on the famous quarter-mile in Thunder Valley in their car, while their friends cheer from the grandstands. In a tough economy, an evening at Taco Bell® Street Fights is an obvious choice.

Spectator admission is just $5, while anyone with a street-legal car can challenge Thunder Valley for only $10. Anyone who presents a Taco Bell® receipt at the gate can race for $5.

Gates open at 5 p.m. on Thursday evening, with racing set for 6 p.m.
