Drag racers of all stripes will gather at Hatbox Field in Muskogee on Saturday to find out who’s got the mettle and who can put the pedal to the metal.
Some professional racers from the TV show “Street Outlaws” are expected to be there, along with other very fast and expensive cars for the anticpated 100 percent cash payout. The event is the first legal drag race to occur at Hatbox.
The 1/8 mile course will pay $10,000 to the winner of the Big Tire class and $8,000 to the winner of the Small Tire class, contingent on a minimum of 28 cars per class.
The gates open at 9 a.m., racing starts at noon. Spectator entrance is at 40th and Denver; spectator tickets cost $10, pit pass is $20.
