Cleetus & Cars is part car show, part burnout contest and part drag racing along with a feature of old, souped-up Crown Victoria cars on the oval called the Indy 800. The two-day event provides so many memorable moments as drivers take their vehicles to the limit.

There will also be an introduction of NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster with action on both days of the weekend show!

General admission tickets are available now. See the Tickets section below for more details.

Event Date: May 3-4, 2024

Burnout Contest

One of the most popular events of the entire weekend happens on Saturday as Cleetus & Cars hosts their famous burnout contest on a new, permanent burnout pad. Drivers literally shred their tires going as insane as possible in an enclosed area.

Fun Run

If you want to take your street-legal vehicle down the legendary Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway drag strip, you can pay to participate. For more details, cost and rules, click here.
