2022 Hot Rod Drag Week Preview
Street Legal Drag Racing
Hot Rod Drag Week brings street legal drag racing back to the Midwest Sunday, Sept. 18 through Friday, Sept. 23, 2022.
Racers will test their mettle over five days and four locations, to see who can win the title of “Fastest Street Car in America.”
Drag and Drive!
Hot Rod Drag Week requires each competitor to race five consecutive days across four track locations. Each competitor not only has to endure a relentless racing schedule but is also required to drive the vehicle over 1,000 miles between locations along a pre-set, photo-verified public road route.
While this “drag and drive” event is a competition, spectators and those who ride along will also find an atmosphere of camaraderie, companionship, and the shared desire to see every car run at its best.
AMSOIL is the Official Oil of Drag Week
AMSOIL is proud to be the Official Oil of Hot Rod Drag Week. Our synthetic racing oils and lubricants offer the extra protection needed for high-performance vehicles to remain worry-free during a demanding and grueling race schedule like this.
This year, the route begins and ends at the World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois just outside of St. Louis, Missouri.
