Catch some combustion-engine action while you can with today's GrouponLive deal to see the Burndown at Sundown event at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet. For $10, you get one ticket for general-admission seating for those 13 and older on Saturday, June 9 (a $20 value). Gates open at 7 a.m. for a day of tech, time trials, and qualifying races, and Burndown at Sundown is held at both at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Children 12 and younger receive free admission with a paying adult, and parking is free for the event.

A joint venture with the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, Burndown at Sundown sends more than 450 cars hurtling down the quarter-mile racing strip at speeds approaching 300 miles per hour. Throughout the evening, pairs of squealing automobiles face off in a variety of classes and spectacles, from nitro-injected dragsters to Top Alcohol funny cars and wagons that pop wheelies as they go. Massive plumes of flame propel jet-powered racers at blinding speeds, scorching the track like an asthmatic dragon running the 100-meter dash. Each admission ticket also doubles as a pit pass, which allows attendees to view chariots up-close and peep at their gargantuan engines engineered purely for speed and roasting marshmallows until they're just slightly brown.

Great Seats for a first timer. The only thing I would like them to include is if you are a first timer bring or purchase ear plugs because the seats are close to the track and its loud. Love the experience and worth the price. Thanks groupon.
