FREE Tickets Available for Throw Down in T-Town This Weekend
Todd Martin and Keith Haney would like to invite all racers to the May 2016 Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park Throw Down In T-Town we promise you haven't raced a race like this we have a blast plus it's a race ran by racers!
The Throw Down in T-Town has become one of the most popular drag races in the country because it's a race put on by racers for racers.
The first Throw Down of 2016 will be held at Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park on May 13th -14th and will feature some of the top racers in the United States competing in 10 classes. Numerous teams will race at the Throw Down the weekend before the PDRA Nationals TX event which we are excited to have the world record holders back!
"The Throw Down in T-Town has become one of the largest races in the country," track co-owner Keith Haney said. "We had 156 race cars October. It's a free event for the customer, and we had 35,000 fans in the stands for the weekend in October. It's just become a huge event."
The track has a total of $54,000 available for class winners and another $36,000 in contingency money up for grabs. In addition to track sponsors Osage Casino, Lucas Oil, Mickey Thompson, Pro-Line, Fuel Tech and RacingJunk.com, several companies have joined the track as contingency sponsors.
"They've all jumped on board just because how big this event has become," Haney said. "We're pretty excited about its magnitude."
The fastest doorslammers in the world will be racing at the Throw Down, which will feature Outlaw 10.5/RvW class, MX275 class, MX235 class, *NEW Limited 275* Pro-Street Class, Outlaw Gassers, Open Bike Full Payback, Jr Pro1 & Pro2 an and two Pro Mod classes: Outlaw Pro Mod (with no rules) and Legal Pro-Nitrous/ Pro Boost. Both Pro Mod categories will feature eight-car fields with $6,000 to win in each class, but should a racer not make either field, he or she can still race in the $2,500-to-win Outlaw Doorslammers class.
"Some of them drive 1,500 miles, but if for some reason they don't get in the show, they still have a chance to race," Haney said.
That's part of the draw the race has for drivers and teams across the country, as Haney and co-owner Todd Martin know how to put on a show.
The event will also feature live music on our Concert Stage throughout the weekend, prize giveaways for fans and Super Play rides for kids.
"We are also excited to announce that we will have a Wheel Standing PT Cruiser & Pro-Mod School Bus."
"It's an absolute blast," Haney said. "The fans interact here like no other. The interaction is amazing and totally off the wall. Most drag racers want to race in front of a big audience. Plus, it's $6,000 to win in each class."
