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.
