BRISTOL, Tenn. (Wednesday, September 21, 2011) – For the greatest thrill show around, head to Bristol Dragway Sept. 24 for Fas Mart Thunder Valley Mayhem presented by Beef O’ Brady’s Family Sports Restaurant. With flames, destruction and extreme speed, no other event in the region comes close to matching Thunder Valley Mayhem.
Thunder Valley Mayhem, known for its thrill-a-minute action, will include some of racing’s craziest machines and outrageous personalities in an evening of edge-of-the-seat entertainment.
Nitro-Powered Pro Mods will square off in one of the wildest shows on four wheels. Fans who have not seen the Pro Mods in person will not want to miss this. The pilots of these nitro-belching rockets have their work cut out as the cars fight them down the entire length of Thunder Valley.
Fans not only will be treated to action from the Pro Mods, the high-speed excitement continues with lightning-fast passes by flame-throwing jet dragsters. These dragsters are capable of intense fire shows and can blaze their way down the track at speeds nearing 200 mph.
New to this year’s show is a monster truck match race. While these massive machines are known for their ability to destroy, they have plenty of horsepower to propel them down Bristol Dragway at unbelievable speeds for a 10,000-pound monster.
Always a crowd favorite, Team FMX returns with mind-bending freestyle motorcycle tricks which will have everyone on their feet pushing them to do their craziest stunts, while Transaurus, a mega dinosaur who likes the taste of metal, will show up to tear trashed cars to shreds.
Thunder Valley Mayhem exhibition runs are slated for 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Saturday evening.
Those in attendance will have plenty to keep them busy all weekend. The event, held in conjunction with the Super Chevy Show, will showcase the region’s best bracket racers in exciting head-to-head racing action.
Fans also will get to see a spectacular selection of some of the best classic and modern Chevys. The Keisler Engineering car show is one of the biggest and best Chevy and General Motors car shows around. Additionally, anyone interested in locating new products for their restoration project will want to visit the Performance and Restoration Marketplace. If that hard-to-find part is nowhere to be found, the car corral and used parts swap meet is definitely the place to go.
For extreme excitement and entertainment, Fas Mart Thunder Valley Mayhem presented by Beef O’ Brady’s is just the ticket.
Spectator admission is $20 for Saturday’s activities. Saturday’s admission ticket includes admission to the Super Chevy Show. Children 10 and under are only $5.
