In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

United Nitro Funny Cars and so much more at Tucson Dragway this weekend!

We got a chance to talk to Funny Car Legend Twig Zeigler.

They might look funny, but they go ridiculously fast. 250-mile-per-hour  fast. The Nitro Funny Cars will be burning some serious rubber at the Tucson Dragway northwest of Vail Friday and Saturday night. The United Nitro Funny Car series makes its’ second stop in Tucson this year. They were here back in April.

There are a ton of other activities going on at the Dragway throughout the day. At 2pm, all the racers will be signing autographs. You can peruse the car show featuring dragsters and historic cars, that are part of the history of the Tucson Dragway.  They’ll even have food trucks and craft beer. The best thing about the races is that you’ll have access to all of the drivers; making it a truly interactive experience.

Kids under 12 are free.  The Tucson Dragway is located near Houghton and I-10 at 12000 S Houghton Rd. For more information, CLICK HERE.
