Real Street Drags (RSD) is a special racing event that is held monthly at Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, WI and Wisconsin International Raceway in Kaukauna, WI. RSD started in 1999 and was designed to allow the local Chicago-area streetracers the opportunity to stage legal streetraces. By the end of the 2003 season, RSD extended its activities to Wisconsin International Raceway.RSD was founded by local streetracers for streetracers, and is organized by them to this day. RSD was the *first* event of its kind anywhere in the midwest USA, and continues to be the premier streetrace event held anywhere. RSD is designed to keep the racing at the track and off the streets. We host the event strictly for the streetracers! No bracket racing, eliminations, trophy/money....ZERO! When RSD comes to town, it's all streetracing business. We open the gates at 3:00pm, with the track opening at 6:00 for time runs and streetraces. We shift to 'hardcore' streetracing at 8:00 (or sooner), and run until 12:00!! When streetraces occur, racers have the same options as if they were on the street--you can spot a racer out or give/take the leave....whatever you want!! You tell us, and we set it up for you. Heads-up races start with a flagger, and are called by a track-appointed spotter at the finish line. A tree start (pro or sportsman) is also allowed--whatever the racers want, with the timing system's "win" light determining the victor. Because of the nature of streetracing, AT NO POINT DURING THE EVENT ARE THE E.T. BOARDS AT THE FINISH LINE DISPLAYING THE RACERS' TIMES. Likewise, the timeslips are separated and given only to the racer IN THE CAR. Secrecy is critical, and we know it.
Lately we've been seein a lot more diesel action too - and we're proud to welcome any diesel owner - Ford or otherwise to come out and have a good time!
