Bio: Rock N Race is a unique combination of out door concert montage and nostalgia drag racing. The event will be held at the historic Dragway 42 in West Salem Ohio. Not far from downtown Cleveland and Akron, it is ideally situated for a large audience. Dragway 42 has undergone a 3 year $13 million renovation and is now open. Rock N Race is the only nostalgia event on the schedule and plans to be the track's signature event! The show started in 2006 and was very successful for a few years and was the track's feature event. We are going back to the roots of the event by making it a nostalgia event. There will be a ton of nostalgic race cars running late into the evening. Bob Motes with his Jet Powered Kenworth is coming out of retirement for this event! Gassers from all over the country will be in attendance. Saturday night with be a 1967 style race with classes based on that years rules in a heads up fastest car wins! Friday night will be also featured with 3 classes of heads up street racing! We will even have a flag start girl competition where they will actually start the racing! Sunday, Sunday, Sunday is race day where all classes compete for cash purse! There will be a stage and sound provided with 8 feature bands being booked in. After the 8 bands have been chosen, if a band would still like to be part of this event, we will schedule bands for on the hour throughout the day. We can only budget the 8 band feature (4 per night) but will comp tickets to bands interested in playing during the day.
