LAS VEGAS – The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is set to host its first Shop-teacher Challenge. The event will pair high-school shop teachers against each other for bracket drag racing on Friday, May 26. The event is open to all high-school shop teachers with a street-legal automobile. Motorcycles will not be allowed to compete in this event. Teachers will have all competition fees waived. High-school students also will have the opportunity to challenge the teachers for bragging rights. The Shop Teacher Challenge will be hosted in conjunction with Friday Night Drags at The Strip, which includes an open test-n-tune with High School and Import bracket racing. High-school students are invited to get a competitive edge on the teachers a week early by attending drag-racing school at The Strip Saturday, May 20 for tips on drag racing. The program is designed to walk teens through the basics of drag racing including safety, staging and many other helpful topics needed to compete. Drag-racing school is set to run from 9 a.m.-1p.m. The program is free to high-school students. For more information teachers and students can contact The Strip at (702) 632-8213.
