4-Wide Racing at Street Car Takeover in Charlotte [GALLERY]
If you've seen our coverage of Street Car Takeover from Indianapolis, Denver, Tucson and Dallas, you know that there is no better event to take your street-driven car to race against others on the quarter mile for cold, hard cash. The Street Car Takeover tour took their road show down to Charlotte, North Carolina this last weekend, and hosted the biggest event in SCT history. With over 400 vehicles registered to race, and an estimated 15,000 spectators in attendance, no ordinary drag strip could accommodate an event of this magnitude.
Of course, ZMax Dragway, located adjacent to the famous Charlotte Motor Speedway, is a no ordinary drag strip. Instead of only two lanes, ZMax has four, all with concerted Christmas trees to get four cars staged and off the line in unison. It's a marvel to watch if you've never seen it before, and adds a dynamic that's unlike any other drag racing around.
Charlotte's car culture is a sleeping giant. While you wouldn't typically expect to hear much about it from the performance world, Charlotte is a hub for street car performance, with everything from Demons to Supras to Cummins Rams running side by side at the track. Flip through the gallery above to see some of the highlights from SCT Charlotte, and make it a bucket list item to attend the next event near you!
