Can I take a passenger with me down the track in my car?

Yes. Each vehicle can take 1 passenger down the track with me as long as they are following proper safety procedures (wearing seatbelt, wearing helmet if required). If you choose to do a run with a passenger, you will be going as a solo run down the racetrack. In other words, you will be the only car on the track for that run (you will not be racing another vehicle). We are only permitted 2 people on the racing surface at 1 time so it is either 2 drivers of 2 separate cars or 1 car with driver & passenger.

Passengers not permitted to run with you include any minor under the age of 18 without parental permission; any minor in a car seat/safety seat; etc St. Thomas Dragway and its staff reserve the right to deny a driver the ability to take a passenger with them at any time for any reason.
