    I just heard a blurb about this on my local sports radio talk show, hadn't known a thing about it. A three day street race on the main drag in Kingman arizona, Oct 25-27. My cars are in california for now, or I would go to have fun, but I'm definitely going to spectate.
    Any body else heard of this? Any body else going? Info on the web at this threads title.
    Unfortunately ,same weekend as fall fling.

    Years ago a few guys in Kingman did a car show and drag race at their airport. At one time they wanted to start a real drag strip and were doing shows and taking donations to raise money. That failed. Later they started the Street Drags and did a few. This is the first time hearing about it in about 10 years for me. The Kingman chamber of commerce has it listed on their web site.
    Good for Kingman !

      It would sure make me happy if this becomes a thing. I miss my two local strips, one 15miles in one direction, the other fiteen the other way.
      Nearest one here is vegas, 115mi one way.

      I'm 75 miles from Kingman. Wish I would have found out sooner. Put some deep gears in my 63 and do some 1/8th mile street racing.But alas the stars aren't gonna align for me to go that weekend. Maybe it will become a annual event again.

          Things changed and I got to go on Saturday. Bigger than I ever expected. NAPA sponsored along with a local Chrysler dealer and plenty of others. Big turn out. Several hundred cars.Professional printed tickets, nice printed program with everything planned by the hour for all three days. Staging lanes got a little out of hand not due to the track officials but the dumb ass people and their 4 wheelers and huge side by sides that would park in the single staging lane and walk away.:BangHead: The staging lane was a side street. But all in all some real fast cars, Pro wheelstanders and everything in between. I hope they will do it next year.
