Joliet, Ill. — January 15, 2013 — Tickets for all Route 66 Raceway events during its 15th Anniversary season went on sale today, with the exception of the O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals, which go on-sale Friday, February 15. Celebrated events like Team Demolition Derby’s, the Four Seasons Heating & Air Conditioning Burndown at Sundown!, Nitto NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing, the Traxxas TORC Series, Route 66 Classic and Downright Diesels join the O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals to form the complete 2013 lineup.
Bone-crushing demolition derby action begins on May 18 with the first of five Team Demolition Derby’s at Route 66 Raceway’s Dirt Oval. Purchase your tickets early with advanced pricing to witness the car crushing collisions, as all five Demolition Derby’s featured sell-out crowds in 2012. Later this summer, the Traxxas TORC Series makes its return to the Dirt Oval on July 19-20 for the fastest, most punishing short course, off-road racing series under the sun.
Taking place under the lights on Saturday, June 8, The Four Seasons Heating & Air Conditioning Burndown at Sundown! features fire-breathing jet cars being propelled to speeds approaching 300 miles per hour. The Burndown at Sundown! serves as a precursor for the O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals presented by Super Start Batteries, June 27-30.
The Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing showcases the NMRA and NMCA, July 11-14. On top of the monumental street legal drag racing, the weekend features a car show, swap meet, manufacturer’s midway and much more.
On August 17, the Route 66 Classic returns to pay homage to early drag racing and hot rod culture. Featuring Nostalgia match racing including funny cars, gassers and pro stocks and a Show ‘n Shine, the Route 66 Classic is a quarter-mile blast down memory lane.
Downright Diesels roars back to Route 66 on September 21, welcoming diesel vehicles of all shapes and sizes. If it has a diesel engine, it belongs in this race. From high stakes "outlaw" competition to "run what you brung" Fun Runs, drivers of any drag racing experience level can participate.
Tickets for the 2013 events at Route 66 Raceway and the Dirt Oval are available by visiting www.Route66Raceway.com or by calling (888) 629-RACE.
