SWD Autopalooza

When zMAX Dragway was completed in August of 2008, it instantly became the mecca of drag racing.  Located just north of Charlotte in Concord, zMAX is the only 4 wide dragstrip.  Yes FOUR LANES WIDE!!! It's a regular stop on the NHRA schedule and draws sellout crowds to every race.  All these people and race teams coming to such a large venue means one thing... a giant parking lot to play in!!! The guys at Streetwise took full advance of all this space running two tracks! I mean if your host has two tracks, it only makes sense to run two tracks when using their parking lot.  This meant that the ProAm drivers and Amateur drivers could get an equal amount of seat time on a course layout that fit their skill levels.  It was a great event to be at to see those still honing their skills and those on the cusp of the pros.  With so much going on, it was hard to leave the track even with the mercury pushing the 100 degree mark! I applaud Streetwise for yet another awesome event for both drivers and spectators!! Be sure to check out one of their future events! You won't regret it! (
