The Chase, also known as Bracket Racing, is one of the most exciting types of races to watch. Racers bring some of the fastest cars from around the planet to compete for over $100,000. The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) organizes this series where racers build motors, drivetrains & chassis from the ground up. The goal is to win races through consistency and fast passes. Fans get to witness big rigs and trailers hauling over 200 dragsters, door cars, roadsters and muscle cars and an international line up of racers.
The race cars leave the line at different times and The Chase begins. The slower of the cars leave first forcing the faster cars to chase them down before the finish. Racers fuse with machine as they try to get an advantage down the length of the track. Fans keep their eyes peeled at the finish line as many races are decided by milliseconds!
There is one catch — racers must also pick the time that they will complete each pass before getting to the start. Go too fast and they automatically hand over the winnings. It’s like a game of chess at 200+mph in ⅛ mile or less!
And as if that wasnt enough excitement for one night, the San Antonio raceway invites motorcycles of all kinds – American made and import – to roll into SAR and speed down our ¼ mile drag strip for Bike Night.
Want to get in on the racing? Race your Ride was created to offer everyone the thrill of a lifetime to take their car down the track in a non competitive environment. Fans get to witness the largest variety of motorcycles, street and racecars in a single evening. You’ll also get to see legends like 14 time world champion Mike Murillo & Multi-time champion Brandon Mitchen get ready for large events.
Bring out the family, friends and neighbors for a night to be remembered. You’ll meet some great people and create memories that will last a lifetime.
If you love the discovery channel's, Street Outlaws, this race series was created for you. We bring the fastest street cars & trucks to the track. Over 50 of Texas’s fastest cars competed last year in the challenge to be on “The List.” We have all the drama, money and bragging rights in one place for you to witness & become part of. At San Antonio Raceway you get to meet the local heroes all in one place.
Racing is heads-up, no excuses, all out, insane fun.
This event is exciting, family friendly and a great place to make some new friends while watching some of the coolest cars.
