Nite Thunder's lineup of speed demons kicks up the dirt on Castrol Raceway’s oval track during an evening of high-octane theatrics. Throughout the event, late-model stock cars show off the cutting edge in mechanical chariots, and winged sprint cars hurtle past one another at speeds exceeding 200 km/h, potentially ending their races in spectacular crashes or the harrowing tragedy of a successful finish. During intermission, fans can head down to the track to collect autographs with drivers and pose for photos in front of cars, and children and ageless wood sprites can clamber on the stadium’s playground.
