Lights Out V

South Georgia Motorsports Park

By , Photography by

After hearing how awesome the racing is, we finally made a trip to South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, Georgia, to witness Lights Out V, one of the biggest radial-tire drag races in the country. Race promoter Donald Long puts this race on in February and No Mercy, an even bigger race, in September. The event lived up to the hype, even with a couple rain delays. We saw crazy, wheels-up racing and record-breaking passes, including Kevin Mullins' 4.113 at 194.3 mph on P315/60-15 drag-radial tires. Keep in mind, this is an eighth-mile time. Running a full quarter-mile, some of these cars would be in the 6s. We will be back at SGMP for No Mercy V on September 25–28, and if you can make it, so should you.
