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 still can with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a ticket to the Allen Turner Pro Late Model Series 100 #1, held at Five Flags Speedway on Friday April 22 at 8 p.m. (a $15 value). Gates open at 5 p.m.
Home to professional PSA racing, the Five Flags Speedway burns boredom with heart-pounding stock-car races that place fans at the metaphorical heart of the action. The upcoming Allen Turner Pro Late Model Series features late model stock cars, super stocks, sportsman, and bombers racing 100 laps at speeds approaching 100 miles per hour while their drivers furiously eat 100 Grands.
The daring derby may feature such top-tier racers as Bubba Pollard, Curtis Faircloth, and Steve Buttrick. Drivers battle it out on the half-mile asphalt, high-banked oval track, and the speedway's up close and personal seating allows diesel die-hards to see each turn, hear each tire squeal, and smell each vehicle's distinctive, citrus-scented musk. Seating is general admission, so race enthusiasts are advised to arrive early to secure their seats and perfect the delivery of their engine-related love sonnets.
