Joliet, Ill. — February 12, 2015 — Route 66 Raceway today announced its complete 2015 drag strip schedule, including the 2015 Route 66 NHRA Nationals, the Four Seasons Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing Burndown at Sundown!, Rockett Brand Racing Fuel ET Bracket Series races and Test & Tunes Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts.

The season gets off to a unique start this February, with the inaugural Hollywood Casino Snocross National. From Feb. 20-21, the first true Stadium of Drag Racing will transform into a snow-covered motocross-style race course for tricked out snowmobiles, capable of amazing 0-to-60 mph speeds and jumps that launch the sleds nearly the distance of an NBA basketball court.

Test & Tunes Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts begin on April 11 and the first of nine ET Bracket Races get underway on April 26, providing local competitors with over two dozen opportunities to enter the Stadium of Drag Racing. A Test & Tune is your opportunity to safely see how fast you can race down the drag strip.  Whether you're a first-time driver in your street legal vehicle or a seasoned veteran getting your dragster dialed-in for serious competition, a Test and Tune is fun for racers of all experience levels.

 

Taking place under the lights on Saturday, June 6, The Four Seasons Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing Burndown at Sundown! features fire-breathing jet cars being propelled to speeds approaching 300 miles per hour. 

The Route 66 NHRA Nationals moves to an exciting new date in 2015, roaring down the track July 9-12. Last season’s Nationals saw Matt Hagan snap an 11-race winless streak en route to a Championship season, while Antron Brown continued his success at Route 66. 

The Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing showcases the NMRA and NMCA, July 30 – Aug. 2, with over 30 classes of all-door-slammer drag racing.  On top of the monumental track action, check out the pristine car show cruisers and browse the manufacturer’s midway and swap meet.

 

On August 15, the Route 66 Classic returns pay homage to early drag racing and hot rod culture, including a special appearance from Nostalgia Pro and Super Stock classes. In the ultimate tribute to all things vintage, hundreds of classic hot rods will participate on the drag strip and in the Cruise-In Car Corral in a quarter-mile blast down memory lane.

 

To close the season, the Route 66 Raceway Swap Meet will return for its seventh year on Oct. 4, inviting buyers and sellers from all over the Midwest to exchange items and display their cars in a Show ‘n Shine.
