Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race

Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race Pure Stock Is the Way to Rock
The Pure Stock Drags is a heart-pumping, octane-boosting race for stock muscle cars held every September at Mid-Michigan Motorplex. What distinguishes our race is that drivers may make only limited modifications to their cars, ensuring the Detroit muscle remains just like when it rolled off the assembly line. The result is more than one hundred beautiful, high-quality cars—that do more than sit in the garage. On the first day of the two-day event, drivers test and tune their cars and conduct qualifying times. The next day, we pair drivers in a best-of-three mini shootout, creating many close races. There's a friendly, fun atmosphere here. Come race your car, or simply enjoy watching the great matches.
