The drag race season is pretty much over, unless you’re in Tulsa, OK this weekend, where the Osage Tulsa Raceway Park is hosting one of the biggest, baddest races around. And one of the most fun. Perfect for a Thanksgiving Weekend!
Tulsa Raceway is no stranger to large scale events, but the Redemption 6.0 No Prep race this weekend, November 24 & 25, is sure to to rock (and roll) the raceway as the best drivers in the game, including many of the stars of Street Outlaws, come to test their mettle with $100K at stake.
“These are the biggest names in the no-prep game,” explains Tulsa track manager Don Ellison. “All the guys on the TV shows, and all the super fast cars not on TV, will be here competing. The regular guys are getting their shot at racing these superstars and the fans will get to see it.”
“All of the other racing is over for the season,” says Haney. “The weather is expected to be great. It’s gonna be a different type of atmosphere than other racing, and a great weekend for fans and drivers.”
“It’s a chance for unknowns to show their stuff,” says Big Don. “I’d bet that the winner will be some guy who’s building his car in his car port, with more money in his race car than in his house.”
Shannon disagrees. She’s got her money on the stars, but not for the reasons you might think. “These guys — like Kye Kelley and Birdman who faced off in the January finals – are successful not just because they’re on TV. They’re good at what they do. They’ve been doing it as professionals for a long time. Regardless, I would just love to see a big showdown in the finals for the fans.”
No matter what, superstars or quiet contender, we know that the No Prep race will offer some stunning competition and we can’t wait to bring you the results.
