There is a junior drag strip program for youngsters ages 8-17.

Youngsters race half-scale dragsters over one-eighth of a mile.

Junior dragsters run from 10 a.m. to noon.

Time trials begin at noon, and eliminations for super cars, modified street cars, street-driven cars and motorcycles start around 2 p.m.

Some special shows at the dragway might have higher admission prices.

Children younger than 12 are admitted free.
