For many decades driving prowess didn’t just mean you had to set your car up before the race and put the pedal to the floor while the transmission clicked through the years. Drivers had an additional challenge of perfectly timing shifts as they used and foot in sync to find the perfect rpm to make their shifts. At the stick shift shootout we bring that back. Racers compete in three different classes — 5 speed, 6 speed and paddle shift. Adding this additional element increases the skills required to get a perfect time down the track.

Come watch local heroes fly through the gears down the ¼ mile with precision. Experience the roots of drag racing in the days before electronics and simplicity as racers are challenged to fuse with machine. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for those who miss a shift and look for the reverse lights to come on a few times as mistakes often lead to a car being thrown into reverse. Fans also get treated to longer burnouts and tires chirping with each shift. The excitement at the start lasts all the way to the finish line.

This exciting event will stimulate your body and mind. Bring out the family & friends to create some lifelong lasting memories.
