April 18-22: BOWLING GREEN KY: HOLLEY EFI OUTLAW STREET CAR REUNION
V: Event being held at Beech Bend Raceway. 2018 will keep a lot
of the classes the same as before while seeing new purse structures,
new class sponsor layouts and more. Radial vs. The World will pay
$15,000 to the event champion. RVW has long been a fan favorite for
all involved, with the elapsed times nearing the 3.6 second range
and most cars well over 200 miles per hour in cars weighing in at
nearly 3,000 pounds on a tire no wider than a 315 drag radial. X275
Drag Radial returns with a cool $10,000 into the winner’s hands at
the end of the day. Limited Drag Radial brings an old school, stock
appearing style category into the fold for the third consecutive
season. LDR has quickly become a fan favorite class with the tight
side-by-side racing and the stock appearance factor of race cars
rushing down the eighth-mile in 4.2 seconds or quicker at over 180
miles per hour. Ultra Street MX235 to join the others once again to
round out our radial line-up for the fifth running of the Outlaw
Street Car Reunion. In 2017, we introduced the Pro Street
Motorcycle category to small tire/drag radial fans for the first
time and had 25 entries fill the pits to launch one of the strongest
PST counts of the 2017 season. For those who do not know, Pro Street
Motorcycle is a category with no wheelie bars and on a ‘radial
style’ motorcycle tire – making them a great fit to a drag radial
event for style and performance. In 2018, we are proud to announce
they are returning for yet another exciting event, already with
committed sponsorship from Great Lakes Racecraft and others
expressing strong interest in our program. 6.00 Index and 7.00
Index returns to anchor our event and bring in a host of the best
sportsman racers across the globe. We stepped outside of the mold in
2017 and performed two events in one weekend with the Thursday
Throwdown bonus race that was a huge hit, with over 50 entries in
both classes! When the main event rolled around, car count grew even
more and we had over 60 entries in each class for the big race that
paid $5,000 to Win. Close to the same program is on tap in 2018 with
a few small purse changes to make the payout reach more drivers and
continue to strive ourselves to build this event into the Sportsman
Super Bowl, year in and year out. For more info go to
