Slated for a stop-off at Area 53 near Forestburg on July 8th, Miles of Mayhem Drag N Drive runs July 5th-9th – heading out from Rimbey on July 5th.

From Rimbey, participants head to Medicine Hat, then it’s east to Saskatoon before heading back to the Area 53 Raceway and finally wrapping up back in Rimbey.

Miles Of Mayhem Drag n Drive is described as a five-day competition where street legal drag race cars run 1/8 mile time trials every day at four different tracks, while driving on public roads between each track unassisted by support vehicles, traveling over 1,700km.

In the meantime, Area 53 continues to feature a regular schedule of events.

Coming up after the Miles of Mayhem stop, more weekend events run July 17/18th (this fills a time when the Stettler Car Club typically holds its 1/8th mile drags which have been cancelled this year).

Other featured events at Area 53 run Aug. 21st/22nd, Sept. 4th-6th, Sept. 18th/19th and Oct. 2nd/3rd, which marks the end of the season.
