BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Bakersfield's Auto Club Famoso Raceway will host the popular Saturday Night NItro events; July 13 and September 7. These single day events provide spectators and participants a perfect venue for great racing and entertainment.

Nitro Funny Cars, Jet Cars, Top Fuel Dragsters, Altereds and hundreds of drag racing cars from all over the Country give spectators a full afternoon and night of awesome drag racing action. Racing starts at 2 pm with the fire spewing fuel cars coming to the line when the sun goes down.

2 Big Nitro Sessions at 8:30 and 10:30 followed by the MavTV/Lucas Oil Jet Dragstrers. Drag racing all day with Nitro all night. The Nitro cars will be testing Friday night and all afternoon on Saturday getting ready for the showdown on Saturday night.

The Saturday Night NItro shows are perfect way to break up the hot Bakersfield days. Spectators love it because they can come out in the cooling afternoon and watch nitro burning race cars at night. These cars put on quite a show at night with their header flames lighting up the night sky. The low altitude and cooler air temperatures combined with the sticky racing surface make great racing conditions.

Gates open at noon. Adults tickets are $20 and kids 12 and under are free. Auto CLub Meber can show their card at the gate a receive $2.00 off admission. The first 1000 Kids will receive a free Hot Wheel. Your admission ticket is your pit pass.

The Kern County Racing Association operates Auto Club Famoso Raceway (just north of Bakersfield, Calif.) and promotes a full schedule of races year round. For more details, visit
