It's Friday Night Street Racing with Snake.  We meet at the edge of town at Sparlings Propane near the railway tracks. Friday night we compete, four lanes wide, to determine who is the fastest. Afterwords Drivers hang out at either the Kawartha Dairy or Popeyes. We sometimes have featured events: TnT Monster Truck Challenge and/or Yellowline (see below). We don't condone Street Racing unless it is done at 1:64 scale.

There are now three apsecs to this event.  The orginal Friday Night Street Racing and now TnT Monster Truck Challenge and Yellowline.  Friday Night Street Racing and TnT Monster Truck Challenge is a choose your ride event, no mail-in requird.  Yellowline on the other hand is a mail-in event.  For the choose your rides, simply request a Casting and Snake will find you your ride. Snake is very resourceful at "finding" rides. The location of this race event has been relocated from downtown Orillia to Sparlings Propane near the railway tracks.
