The wildly popular street drag racing program Friday Night Drags presented by AC Delco at Atlanta Motor Speedway will receive a few extra horsepower this weekend. Kurt Johnson’s AC Delco Chevrolet Cobalt will be on display along with making a couple of runs down the eighth mile drag strip along pit road. The NHRA Pro Stock racer currently sits third in the NHRA Pro Stock Powerade Series point standings.

AC Delco, through local distributor JI Express, will be presenting the 1,200 horsepower land rocket along with a large display unit this Friday night at the speedway. The display unit also includes a Drag Racing Reaction Time game for the fans to test their reaction time launching a simulated drag race. The game opportunity is free for the fans in attendance this weekend.
