Come To The First Ever Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags At Tucson Dragway, Jan 14, 2017

Remember when we said save the date for January 14, 2017? Hopefully you did, because this is not going to be something you want to miss.

On January 14, 2017 at Tucson Dragway in Tucson, Arizona, we’re gonna be racing and hanging out talking cars. You should join us. We even finally named the event, with help from all of you.

2017 Roadkill Zip-Tie Drags

Tucson Dragway

12000 S Houghton Rd, Tucson, AZ 85747

All that’s great, right? There’s more. So much more. This much more:

Friday, January 13

Here’s the rough plan. It’s likely to go wrong.

Early in the morning we will meetup at the HOT ROD and Roadkill shop in El Segundo, California. We’ll have donuts and t-shirts and maybe even maps with where we are going. Once all the Roadkill cars are road worthy (heh), we’ll set out for Arizona. Maybe we’ll stop for lunch on the way. For sure we’ll stop because something breaks. You don’t have to stop. No really, go ahead, we’ll catch up. We’ll end up at Tucson Dragway in the evening, and you can camp at the track or just hang out for a bit. We want to have a campfire, but maybe we’ll just roast marshmallows over whichever Roadkill pile has an electrical short.

Oh yeah, Tucson Dragway has a test-n-tune on Friday nights, so anything that’s still running after the drive can make some passes.


Saturday, January 14

We have activities planned!

Swap meet – sell stuff! Buy stuff!

T-shirts – So many designs!

Drag Racing – Because, duh, racetrack. Race your car.

Car Show – In case it stops running

Autographs and Q&A with Freiburger and Finnegan

Race F&F Lottery – Try for a chance to drag race against a Roadkill car (The likelihood of you winning is high.)

Roadkill Exhibition Runs (Our junk is going to break)

Our first $3,000 Hooptie Challenge. This is a race where Roadkill decides if a car has been built for less than $3,000 or not. The accepted cars run hot laps, heads up. Winners return to lanes until a winner has been determined. There’s bound to be fighting.

Burnouts and Awards!

Everyone go home now.

Doesn’t that sound like fun?


It’s not even that much money, ‘cause we know you’re poor.

  1. My question is tech. What do we need to pass? Assuming that my junk isn’t THAT fast, what equipment must be installed and what holes must be filled? I need to know how much money I have to spend on go faster parts vs. fix stuff parts.

      1. We’ll put together a more detailed list, but right now it looks like you will have to pass a safety tech, so, seatbelts, nothing loose, no visible holes in the floor/firewall. I would assume safety equipment does not count towards the $3000 cap, but don’t quote me on that yet.
