Antique Car Drag Race

Summer 2021
co-sponsored by the Town of North Hempstead

Legal drag racing returns to Long Island for the first time since 2002!


We will step back in time and recreate hot rod history. Vintage Flathead powered hot rods and racers duke it out in Historic Tully Park. Due to the global pandemic, this will be a closed event for ticket holders only.
