During the ride-along, professional drivers pilot dragsters as passengers battle the g-force created by an 800-horsepower engine. The first option comprises one run down the drag at speeds of more than 140 mph, whereas the Dragster Blast Ride-Along 2 features two runs. Each run is highlighted by a long, smoky burnout.
For the latter options, customers hop into the driver's seat of a 500-horsepower machine after safety and track orientations. The Qualifier includes two runs down the strip—one for 330 feet, the other for 1/8 mile—at more than 100 mph within about six seconds. Meanwhile, the Eliminator ups the adrenaline with three runs that get progressively longer and faster—up to a quarter-mile at speeds of 130 mph.
Pure Speed Drag Racing Experience
A driver curls his fingers around the steering wheel, takes a deep breath, and places his foot onto the peddle, bringing a mechanical beast to life. The screech of burning rubber, roar of an 500-horsepower engine, and the silent rush of adrenaline block out the rest of the world, allowing the driver to focus entirely on the run. As he battles the g-force, the realization hits that he has just achieved a lifelong dream: He is a drag racer.
Doug Foley first noticed the lack of a comprehensive drag-racing training center in 1997, and he took it upon himself to fill the void. Along with a team of instructors, Foley lets novices ride shotgun or drive themselves to taste drag racing for the first time. Once the new racers are hooked, a lineup of beginner to advanced classes licenses students for everything from junior dragsters, to door cars and A-fueled dragsters. Through these efforts, Foley and his team ready drivers to compete in professional races and fulfill a dream.
