The State Capitol Raceway
Drag Racing, Mud Drags, Sand Drags and more
Many in Baton Rouge(and in my family) love to go to the drag strip on Fridays. Building and tuning autos is a big hobby around here so lots of people go to State Capitol Raceway to partake.
There are a good number of competitions but Friday nights are a "Test and Tune" night where people can go out and see what their projects can do. They keep a well updated calendar on their website so if you're interested in racing definitely check this out.
Racers pay $20, spectators pay $10. Gates open at 5pm.
