The I-57 Dragstrip in Benton, Illinois is where students who are members of the ATO compete in weekly drag races on the track. There's not much use for a speedometer as the cars can clock 0 to 60 MPH in seconds and can reach a top average speed of 110 MPH. Drivers have been known to race in anything from door cars to roadsters.
