HOT ROD Drag Week
September 18, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
The race to determine the title of “Fastest Street Car in America” is back as HOT ROD Drag Week 2023 Presented by Gear Vendors Overdrive returns to premier tracks in four Southeast cities Sunday, Sept. 17 through Friday, Sept. 22, and made extra special this year as HOT ROD Magazine celebrates 75 years in 2023. The winning driver walks away with a custom guitar from longtime sponsor Gear Vendors Overdrive, bragging rights for the year, and extensive media coverage from the largest and oldest enthusiast media group.
HOT ROD Drag Week has been a world-renowned street-legal competition since 2005, attracting participants and fans from countries as far away as Australia and Estonia. This unique event week puts competitors through a grueling test over five days of action-packed drag racing, requiring racers to drive their vehicles on a specified route from city to city, upward of 1,000 miles, while securing the quickest possible elapsed time across the five days. During the competition, drivers provide photographic evidence to prove they have adhered to the prescribed route. Some of the nation’s top racers participate in Drag Week each year, and it’s not uncommon for competitors to band together to help each other get through the week.
