    RAD Torque Raceway proudly hosts JBs Power Centre Street Legal Drags on its NHRA-sanctioned 1/4 mile drag strip, attracting Canada’s fastest-growing community of street rods and sport compact cars. Since the rise of high-performance automotive culture, demand has surged, with competitors and spectators eagerly gathering to witness the excitement. We collaborate closely with the Leduc RCMP, Stony Plain RCMP, Edmonton Police Service, and local high schools to promote the sport and encourage young street racers to embrace their passion for speed in a safe environment.

    Our pride and joy, the Street Legal Safety through Education racing program, aims to inspire speed enthusiasts in a safe, controlled, and enjoyable setting—far away from the streets. We’ve partnered with the Edmonton Police Services’ Blue Line Racing program and the RCMP Y.I.E.L.D. (Youth Initiative for Education in Lifestyle & Driving). Together, we are committed to fostering responsible street legal racing.

    Fueled by our passion for motorsports, a non-profit organization was formed in collaboration with a dedicated group of parents. This initiative gave rise to the Nitro Ratz Junior Dragster Association, a community of enthusiastic kids, families, and volunteers fostering early respect for automobiles and safe driving skills among children aged 7-17.

    The Nitro Ratz promote values such as sportsmanship, camaraderie, team spirit, and the development of lifelong friendships. Since our inception, we’ve proudly raised over $120,000 to support this youth racing program.

    Junior drag racing provides a controlled and thrilling environment for kids aged 7-17. Using half-scale versions of Top Fuel dragsters called Jr. Dragsters, equipped with a five-horsepower, single-cylinder engine, young competitors can reach speeds of up to 85 mph and cover an eighth-mile in as quick as 7.90 seconds.
