Hot August Nights Drag Races & Burnouts is an event worth seeing! Classic competitors race down a 1/16 of a mile track held in the west parking lot at the Nugget Casino Resort. Dragsters will compete side  by side with full professional equipment including “Christmas Tree” starting lights, finish line displays, and full comparative E.T. printouts for each driver.

The committee responsibilities include but are not limited to: registering drivers and to insure the participants meet tech checkpoints. Selling entrance wristbands to spectators, monitor entrances, and assure safe transit of the tech check area for our guests. Organize the racers into pairs, transition them from the tech check area to the track, monitor the track for safety, and assist drivers in the transition back to the tech check area.
