Weekend Preview: NAPA Auto Parts Night of Fire and Thunder

By Ronnie Kohrt

It is a night unlike any other where Bandimere Speedway lights up the sky with jet cars, some of the fastest dragsters and doorslammers you’ll find in the region and entertainment that’s fun for the whole family. 

The NAPA Auto Parts Night of Fire and Thunder is set for this Saturday and brings such a unique combination of racing to Thunder Mountain with fun for all ages as Bandimere Speedway welcomes the summer months with heat from jet cars.

Nitro-burning fuel alter machines are a wild and crazy ride down the race track. You'll see a gathering of several from across the country racing down the quarter-mile at insane speeds!

Hitting the quarter-mile with a new name this year is the Get Biofuel Quick 16. This class is designed for the doorslammers! What’s a doorslammer? Call it the cool kids way of describing a race car with doors that gets to the 60’ marker on the race track in less than a second, rippling the tires and clocking in at 180mph at the finish line just six-seconds later.  


Also featured will be the Madcap Racing Engines Fast 16. Dragsters that set speed marks unmatched around the country. Only the fastest sixteen make the show, but the beauty of showing up early? You get to watch qualifying! Make it to Thunder Mountain early on Saturday!
