Ninth Season of Midnight Mayhem Opens Friday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host the ninth annual season opener for its popular Midnight Mayhem series. Midnight Mayhem is The Strip at LVMS’s safe alternative to illegal street racing. Instead of street racing illegally on the roads of Las Vegas and Clark County, The Strip at LVMS encourages enthusiasts to race each other on the safer confines of its NHRA-sanctioned drag strip.

Gates will open at 6 p.m. Tech inspection will take place from 6-10 p.m., with racing from 7 p.m.-midnight. Now in its ninth year, Midnight Mayhem is open to any licensed driver with proof of insurance and any street-legal car or motorcycle (vehicle must be registered – no temporary tags are permitted).

Driver must provide proof-of-ownership or written authorization from owner. Minors must present a signed parental consent form, which may be obtained by calling The Strip’s office at (702) 632-8213.

All cars are required to pass a basic NHRA safety inspection (properly-inflated tires, battery securely mounted, seat belts, etc.). Cars must be driven through registration and tech inspection (trailered vehicles are not allowed).

Alcohol is not allowed and beer is not sold at the track during Midnight Mayhem. Coolers, alcoholic beverages and weapons are not allowed.

Management reserves the right to alter vehicle and participant eligibility for the betterment of racing and safety.

Entry fee is $10 to race and $6 admission for spectators. Ride-along passes and restricted-area passes are $10. For more information, please call The Strip’s office at (702) 632-8213 or visit
