WE ARE WORKING ON SETTING UP A LIVE STREAM FOR THIS YEARS RACE, WE’LL PUT UP THE INFO ONCE WE GET IT ALL FIGURED OUT. RPM Nationals is a race that pays homage to the early days of drag racing. When race cars and street cars competed head to head to see whose garage built hop up was the fastest. The races then started with the drop of a flag and end 1/8 of a mile down the strip. We have 6 classes for race vehicles, 4 cylinder street, v8 street, 4 cylinder modified street, v8 modified street, 4 cylinder full race, and v8 full race. Standard street class requires cars to be licensed and be capable of being driven on public streets, modified street requires the same but allows for power adders such as blowers or overhead conversions, full race is the anything goes class, blowers, overhead conversions, and nitro. All cars in every class are required to appear as a 1955 or older build style (but with some modern safety features) no modern electronics are allowed in any class bringing back the days of real hands on tuning, not being able to read that plug correctly could cause you the race. Along with the racing there’s a car show down by the track, food and drinks, vendor area, and a swap meet area that some amazing vintage parts show up at every year. For more info go to or
