Back for 2017, "Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge," TEN: The Enthusiast Network’s popular drag racing event and car festival, which attracted more than 30,000 fans last year, returns to M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan. Moving up a week, Roadkill Nights takes place on Saturday, Aug.12, kicking off southeast Michigan’s weeklong celebration of classic cars and car culture.

This year’s "Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge" is even bigger and better, bringing back legal street drag racing on Woodward Avenue and even more experiences, including Dodge Thrill Rides in the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat and the 645-horsepower Dodge Viper. Fans will also get to see the new 840-horsepower 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon on the dragstrip and “drive” it via a high-octane drag racing simulation experience. Additional activities include cacklefest, wheelstander exhibition runs, dyno tests, show ’n’ shine, “Roadkill” stunts and exhibitions. New family-friendly activities this year include thrill rides on the M1 track, large inflatable slides and obstacle course, rock climbing walls, face painting, as well as live music and entertainment on the main stage, and an eclectic array of food truck offerings and beverages available for purchase.

“Continuing the Dodge brand's efforts to take racing off the streets and to a professionally run strip, there is no better way to kick off Detroit’s annual cruise week than to have a pure enthusiast event like Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and FIAT, FCA – North America. “This event is also the perfect opportunity to show muscle car enthusiasts from around the world the new 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon where it was born to dominate – on the dragstrip.”

The car show and festival will also include a first-ever celebrity showdown with "Roadkill" cohosts David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan, drag racing stars Leah Pritchett and Matt Hagan, and "The House of Muscle" car guru Mike Musto. Leading the races will be Freiburger and Finnegan, cohosts of the most-viewed YouTube automotive original series in the United States. Chris Jacobs of Velocity’s "Overhaulin'" will cohost the activities both on and off the dragstrip.



"Roadkill Nights brings ‘Roadkill’ to life and allows our fans to participate in the thrill of fingers-clenching, top-speed drag racing, which is what we thrive on,” Freiburger says. “There’s something for everyone — drag racers, families, foodies and anyone who is looking to have a great day filled with unparalleled fun at an iconic location."

The August 12 "Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge" event is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Drag racing and Dodge Thrill rides will take place from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.


Roadkill Nights Registration Information
