The Drag-N-Drive community is exploding!! The coming year will be the largest count of races and participants in HISTORY!!

For all the new racers interested in these events, let’s talk about it…

A drag and drive event is a modern day Two Lane Blacktop. These events have racers leave their truck and car trailer at the track while driving their racecar between tracks, carrying all parts/supplies they will need for racing and repairs! The racers are required to make at least one pass at each of the tracks during the event. The average of those passes are used for their overall place within the event. Like many drag race events, there are multiple classes to fit almost every build. We track only events with a race, drive, race format. Meaning, the racer must make an all-out pass on day one then drive their car to the next track and do the same. Some events are as short as two days, while others are up to seven. 

This is for true car builders, guys and girls that aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, eat gas station food and sleep 3 hours a night for fun!!


The growth of these events has been explosive the last three years. For 2019, only 4 events were hosted. For 2023, we already have 18 events on the schedule and are seeing the spread into new markets, like Northern California. Participant growth has exponentially grown as well, seeing just 682 in 2019, to more than 1800 in 2022. Adding the additional events for 2023, we expect more than 2600 entries next year.


Drag-N-Drive is the source for news and entertainment in the drag and drive community. We provide updates through almost-daily social media posts, weekly episodes of the Drag-N-Drive News and beginning 12/21, a weekly 2 hour social media live stream with rotating guests and community updates.
