What you'll do

What we will do is begin my meeting at the drag strip gates, pay entrance fee, get our hands stamped, and enter into the pit area. Where we will be is at Beech Bend Raceway Track in Bowling Green, Ky. Then we will proceed to a set up tent supplied with cool beverages, and snacks. After everyone is nourished, we will cruise the pits, talk to some race car drivers, look under hoods, and watch time trials. Then we will have break for beverages (remember this is during the hot time of the day and were also on black hot pavement). During this time we will provide a description of some common terms significant to drag racing. Finally, we will stand for the National Anthem and listen to the "Gentleman start your Engine " command and watch the first round of eliminations in the grandstands. After first round ends, we will watch how the cars refuel and refresh there battery by talking to our camping site race car driver.
We will finalize our day by meeting at the tent at the ending time of the experience and debrief on the experience and end with a question and answer session.
Other things to note
Dress for hot weather. The track gets really loud so brings noise reducing ear buds. Ticket price is $10.00 per person at most events and included in the price.

I was “born and bred” in Bowling Green, Ky. I grew up with my brother and his friends Drag Racing at Beech Beech Parkway every Sunday. I later married my brothers best friend who helped my brother do the burnout in the water box, cool the radiator, and add fuel in between rounds. I have watched several hundred “passes” and can explain several drag racing terms like “red light”, “dial in”, “breakout”, “burnout”, “stage”, and “win light”. I have also smelled a lot of burning rubber and know a lot of advantageous spots to spectate in. I have also “cruised the pits” and know a lot of drag racers personally. I am even married to one!
