In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Hot Rod Drag Week at Darlington Dragway

It's about more than just the fastest time...

Five Days.  Four Cities. Over 1,000 miles.  One Champion!  HOT ROD Drag Week’s 2018 race to crown “Fastest Street Car in America” is coming to Hartsville

HOT ROD Drag Week is more than just clocking the fastest time on the strip; it puts competitors to a grueling test over the five days of drag racing, requiring racers to drive their vehicles on a specified route from city to city, upward of 1,000 miles. During the competition, drivers provide photographic evidence to prove they have adhered to the prescribed route. Some of the nation’s top racers have entered, and this year will feature past winners such as Jeff Lutz, Larry Larson, Tom Bailey, and Dave Schroeder all going head to head for the title of the 2018 Overall Winner.

We caught up with Hot Rod Magazine’s Publisher and GM, Jonathan Mill to ask what we can expect.

Tuesday September 11th, Darlington Dragway will host the second leg of the 14th annual Hot Rod Drag Week 2018.  Racing starts at 8am and ends at 2pm.  Tickets are $20 dollars.
