BURNDOWN AT SUNDOWN!
As summer descends on Chicago, BURNDOWN AT SUNDOWN! heats up already scorching pavement when cars hurtle down the track at speeds approaching 300 MPH. Nearly 500 rides converge upon Route 66 Raceway for the all-day event, which includes fire-breathing jet cars and nostalgic fan favorites that harken back to the days when engines ran on malted milkshakes. To go along with the historic theme, the day also features an appearance from Dave Modder's 1940 Ford Dragon's Fyre jet truck, which is the only one of its kind in the world. Visitors can catch all the action from either the the general-admission grandstands or from the pit, since every ticket doubles as a pit pass. BURNDOWN AT SUNDOWN! also features a live band, fire dancers, free kids' activities, and more.
