Little River Dragway presents
Historic Little River Dragway has been a piece of Texas hot rodding history since it opened in 1957. That history lives on today, as Little River Dragway will host the vintage drag racing show.
The Vintage Drags are dedicated to vintage speed. You will see early style hot rods, racecars, gassers, dragsters and more tearing down the same old dragstrip in the heart of Texas that has been raced on for decades. This is an event that you will need to experience in person to appreciate.
An event that has to be experienced in person, a bit of living history. We hope you will join us for this special event.
“RUN WHAT YA BRUNG”
Traditionally-built hot rods, stock cars, gassers and dragsters, all American made 1975 and earlier are welcome to come have fun with some drag racing out on this great old dragstrip. Come “run what ya brung” – or just take in the sights and sounds of this unique event.

Seatbelts and helmets are required for ALL cars and racers – we want everyone to be safe.
To race in elimination races, you must return to the staging lanes after time trials and we will mark your dial-in time and class on your windshield.
During elimination rounds, racers will line up within each class and face off by dial-in times.
Your dial-in time is set by your fastest pass during time trials, no sandbagging and breaks at the end – run as fast as you can, this is a race!
