Save your burnouts, wide-open throttle and revving engines for the after party. The 2013 CAR CRAFT Street Machine Nationals has switched gears from an all-day event to include an all-night midnight drag event. Whether you’re watching, racing or testing and tuning, CAR CRAFT wants to see you at our CAR CRAFT Midnight Drags presented by GEAR VENDORS which takes place Saturday, June 29th. The CAR CRAFT Midnight Drags presented by GEAR VENDORS will take place following the 2013 CAR CRAFT Street Machine Nationals. Cars will caravan from DuQuoin to the I-57 Dragstrip in Benton IL. The event will be a head-to-head style race, cars will launch from the line using a Sportsman Tree, names will be picked out of hat for each round, and we will race until a winner is determined. The winner will receive a prize of $1,000, a custom CAR CRAFT jacket. Well-built American muscle cars, blowers, chrome, and lots of rowdiness – those are the elements that people remember most about the CAR CRAFT Street Machine Nationals -right? Going back 16 years, those were the very reasons the event left Du Quoin; it should come as no surprise that this year’s return of the Nationals is expected to bring all of that back. When the fairgrounds close, don’t head to your hotel – come to the track! By Nikolas Kolenich Enjoyed this Post?
