Go head-to-head against your friends in 300-horsepower dragsters. You'll fire from the line, shifting and accelerating your way from 0-70 MPH in 3.5 heart-pounding seconds! All the thrills of racing an NHRA Top Fuel Dragster, plus head-to-head competition. That's right, six heart-stopping, propane-fueled, 300 horsepower racing machines that go 0-70 in less than 3.5 seconds and pull 2.5 G-forces. The trick is to be on the accelerator when the third yellow light goes out. If you wait to see the green light, you’re toast.

$15.00 FOR THREE RACES

4' 8" MINIMUM HEIGHT REQUIREMENT
HAIR LONGER THAN SHOULDER LENGTH MUST BE TIED BACK


We were visiting LA and he always told me from seeing this place in passing along the HWY 60, it looks fun, but always said NO we are not here for that........but this time as he was sleeping in the Car I pulled off the road and hit this place then he woke up to the SpeedZone front building. He was so happy UNTIL we found out he wasn't Old enough or tall enough for some of the other go carts but the DragCars he was eligible only needing to be 4'8" he is 4' 11"..he was scared shitless but I convinced him he would be fine it's safe.


Well, he beat me 2 out of 3 times :badteeth: Either I better give up drag racing or I we have a future Star in the family....I must admit it gave me the adrenaline like my 10R at the strip and we both where hitting 3.5s. :thumbsup:


Anyone ever try that in LA or Dallas?

quick kid

sounds like a natural. seriously, good, clean racing can bond a father and son. maybe get him interested, always at a safe level. my sons first pass ever was 10.00 at 146 on a zx12, his first streetbike, 2 wks riding it.he was 24. we really enjoyed racing together. just a thought.

What was your Sons Mods?...that is awesome...I have been having clutch problems but weigh 215lbs suited but did 10.00s last time out on my 10r @ 148mph...your kid is hauling... :eek:ccasion1

With that said I hope my Son doesn't follow me in the drag strip thing(I get worried :badteeth:) and maybe he won't. I am lucky to be alive with my bike experiences in 30yrs of riding all over the world. :badteeth:

That's a good point...if he sticks to the dragstrip only I don't think I will have a problem....bikes and history like me I am a concerned Daddy that's just me knowing ALL what can go wrong if your not in the right mindset and no luck...he's my only kid and worry....but point taken. :eek:ccasion1

I might have to take a trip to Dallas. I need to see if I'm faster than wifey, but she's a killer at the stoplights, and a pedal masher lol. If there were a stoplight drag champion she'd be it!! :lol:

Isn't it also power to weight ratio?

I doubt at 4'11" he weights less than half of you.
Major advantage and perhaps he has really good reflexes.

I think you should celibrate this by taking him to Starbucks and getting him his first Venti Mocha Latte.

That's the problem, when he was 5yrs old I gave him drag racing games, taught him about the tree or reminded him if he sees Green he already lost etc....made me look like a squid. :lol:

He a skinny kid but athletic....think soccer that's his game and yes still weighs less than half of me. :badteeth::helmet:
