Historic drag race takes place in Vegas


The most power vehicles on four wheels roll into Las Vegas this weekend.

It’s an historic weekend in southern Nevada and the first time you can say they’re racing 4 wide at the Las Vegas speedway. There are only two drag strips in the United States that feature 4 wide, one in Charlotte, and the other in Las Vegas. Racing continues through the weekend on a brand-new strip that includes 225,000 pounds of steel, 10,000 tons of gravel, eight tons of asphalt and 4,400 yards of concrete.
