Gas-powered cars will soon be replaced by electric cars, which will be replaced by two-person motorcycles powered by nightmares. Catch some combustion-engine action while you can with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one general-admission ticket to four scheduled May races at Dixie Motor Speedway in Birch Run (a $51 value).
Home to short-track racing since 1949, Dixie Motor Speedway hosts a motley lineup of three-wide motorized mayhem for pro late models, pro stocks, street stocks, and more. Gearheads can hoot and holler as Dixie’s professional pedal pushers tear up the track in their quest to capture the checkered flag during four race dates in May. Celebrate on May 6 as speed junkies recover from months of high-octane-exhaust withdrawal on opening night, and let mini-motorheads dream of two-wheeled glory with the chance to win a bike on May 13. The Eve of Destruction on May 15 invites fans to enjoy a one-ring circus of car carnage, featuring chain-gang and flagpole races, a 50-lap demolition enduro, and figure-eight heats starring trailers and tricked-out school buses. On May 20, American's veterans are honored with deft left turns. After the excitement, super-fans can head down to the pits to meet the drivers and beg them to autograph a souvenir T-shirt or a collector’s-edition print of the National Interstate Highway Act of 1956.
