This Friday night is the Western Colorado Drag Way Midnight Madness Street Legal Drag race. Racing is fun anytime but an extra good time at night.

The idea for Street Legal Racing came about many years ago as a way for those illegally racing down back roads the option to do so in a safe and controlled environment. The concept has taken on a life of its own all across the country and this Friday night is Western Colorado Drag Way's first of the year.
