STREET LEGAL RACING
May 3 - September 28, 2024
RAD Torque Raceway features an NHRA-sanctioned 1/4 mile drag strip, home to Canada’s rapidly growing community of street rods and sport compact cars. Since the emergence of the ‘Fast and The Furious’ sub-culture, there’s been a surge in the demand for extreme sports. Participants and spectators eagerly gather to witness friends, family, and rivals compete in the quarter mile.
We closely collaborate with the Leduc RCMP, Stony Plain RCMP, Edmonton Police Service, and local high schools. Our goal is not only to promote the sport but also to encourage young street racers to channel their passion for speed into 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.
