In a departure from Byron Dragway’s tradition of often being “done by dark,” temporary lighting will illuminate the famed drag strip after sunset this weekend. With a strong car count heading into this weekend’s 23rd Annual Firecracker Bracket Nationals, the track staff is ready and prepared to stretch the racing day into the evening as needed.

Early racer parking opens at 9 am Thursday. Gates will open at 7:30 am Friday-Sunday, with on-track activity beginning as early as 8:30 am Friday-Sunday.

Entries are still available for door cars and dragsters.
