The final two days of TX2K13, affectionately known as “The Days of Drag,” were a perfect way to close out a nearly flawless event. In stark contrast to last year, no major equipment failures, accidents, or inclement weather caused any serious delays allowing the races to proceed without incident.

If speeds in excess of 170MPH, the deafening crack of two-step and rev limiters and the smell of race gas all elevate your blood pressure to an unprecedented level, then the TX2K Days of Drag are definitely for you.

Held at the New Coalinga Municipal Airport about three hours northwest of Los Angeles, it was the perfect venue to host the new location of Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack - a high-speed shootout, half-mile rolling drag, side-by-side racing event. With speeds in excess of 210 miles per hour, it truly separates the weak from the strong.
