No prep racing is about to kick into high-gear with one of the most unique events you will ever see: DigNight Street Racing at NRG Park. With the demand for street-type racing events at an all-time high, this event is going to be one that you don’t want to miss. The DigNight event brings the best no prep racers in the country to NRG Park in Houston, Texas, to do battle in the parking lot of an NFL stadium. If you can’t catch this historic event live, Speedvideo.com will be streaming the event live in HD title sponsored by Late Model Engines, with additional full coverage also on Dragzine.com.
There will be some serious cash on the table for the winner of each class, not to mention all the extra grudge racing that will be going down. The racers in the Big Tire class will be competing for a nice $12,500 payday to go along with the title of champion. In the Small Tire class, competitors will be vying for a cool $7,500 to-win, and the always exciting True Street class is taking aim at a $5,000 purse.
For spectators, there will be even more to check out with a live DJ, mini races between rounds, multiple vendors, covered seating, a beer garden, and even a VIP area. All of this is going down June 24-25 at NRG Park in Houston.
If all of that wasn’t enough to get you to come check this event out in person, or on SpeedVideo.com, the list of racers who will be engaging in no prep combat is amazing — you’ll get to see the likes of, James “Birdman” Finney, Kye Kelley, Scott Taylor, David “Bird” Jones, Flaco’s “Cornfed 2.0”, and James Kay “Mean Green”, just to name a few.
