HOT ROD Magazine revs up for Drag Week September 7-13.

El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

With over 100 more entries than last year an unprecedented 340 cars will race in the biggest event yet when HOT ROD Drag Week 2014 starts September 7th.

Competitors will be put to a grueling test over five days of drag racing and more than 1,000 miles covered in the same car, with the same engine, in the search for HOT RODs Fastest Street Car in America. Participants will register times at four drag strips. Some of the most amazing vehicles in the world will be on display, as a few will be looking to top 200 mph in the quarter-mile in less than seven seconds.

But its not just about clocking the lowest elapsed time on the strips; the racers will also have to drive their vehicles on a specified route from city to city. The crew at HOT ROD will require photographic evidence from each entry that drivers are adhering to the prescribed route. Thus, drivers will be on the clock for five straight days and must remain alert to all rules.

Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park will be open September 7th from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for tech inspection and test n tune. Spectators can see the field of competitors as they undergo tech inspection then take the track for some test time prior to the first day of racing.

For the first time ever the Heads-Up Shootout will take place September 13th. This is a real race, whereas Drag Week is essentially time trials. Its the chance for the little guys to trounce the big guys if they can. Cars will race until a winner is announced.
