Throw Down in T-Town Race kicked off Friday

From all across the country, the fastest cars and the fastest racers are throwing down in T-Town.

"It is the biggest, the baddest, outlaw door slammer in this part of the world. Three-second cars, two hundred miles an hour. Back in the 80s, you heard all those deals 'fire breathing wheel spinning drag cars!' They're here," said Big Don, general manager of Tulsa Raceway Park.

Also here are people who have driven for hours to come see the event.

"If you've never been, you need to come out here, because it's just unreal the amount of racing you get to see, and these cars are just phenomenal to watch," said Michael Stark of Quincy, Illinois.

"It's awesome for them to see. There's going to be side by side passes in the three seconds, over 200 miles an hour. A lot of us run 200 plus," said John Stouffer with Stouffer Racing.

In all, organizers are expecting over 25,000 people to come see the spectacle this weekend. Tomorrow the races start around 9 a.m. and run until the last car is done. Tickets are free, you just pay ten dollars for parking.
