Texas Motor Speedway converts its pit road, which is typically used for NASCAR and INDYCAR events, into a 1/8-mile drag strip for the six-week summer series. Every Friday from June 23 to July 28 drivers from across North Texas will compete for weekly and season-long championships in seven different divisions.

Joining the thrill of high-speed drag racing is the return of the popular Hills Air Support Show-N-Shine. Car enthusiasts display their prized vehicles for the opportunity to be recognized as the best in one of four categories: Best of Show, Best Classic - 1972 or earlier, Best Current Custom - 1973 to current and Best Motorcycle.

The gates open each week at 6 p.m. with inspection, practice and Hills Air Support Show-N-Shine beginning at 6:15 p.m. Drag racing competition gets underway at 9:15 p.m.

The cost is $20 to participate in the drag racing or Hills Air Support Show-N-Shine competition each week. For spectators, general admission grandstand tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under and available at the Gate 6 ticket booth. Parking is free in the PSL lot outside of Gate 6 and available for $20 in the infield (with admission included in the pricing). Coolers are permitted in both the grandstands and infield.
