“Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge,” a highly successful event including drag races, car shows, thrill rides, and dyno testing, will return this year. The organizers will show a Dodge Demon — and might (or might not) race it.  There will also be wheelstander runs and many family activities. A celebrity showdown will have professional racers get behind the wheel.
