“This event is a great venue to introduce would-be racers to competitive drag racing; it's also an event for the most seasoned drag racers,” said Mike Taddoni, one of the event organizers.

Drag racers and fans from all over New Mexico and as far as Texas, Colorado and Arizona will converge on Albuquerque Dragway, Mesa de Sol, June1, for the third annual All Out Call Out. The 2013 All Out Call Out is a one-of-a-kind drag race event like no other in the USA. Five classes of street car racing, ranging from the 14.5 second Elapsed Time, (ET) “Slow Poke” class, all the way to the 10.2 seconds and faster ET “Let it Eat” class, will battle it out for over $5,000 in cash and prizes.

What makes the All Out Call Out different from virtually all other races is its format. The All Out Call Out is a single elimination street car race. Racers in each class will have tickets drawn to “call out” other racers in their class. Racers cannot turn down a race when challenged. The winner of the race will be the first car across the finish line without breaking out of the ET limits of their class, not necessarily the car with the faster time. The 2013 All Out Call Out is unique because it combines the fun and excitement of a heads up street race, with the timing equipment, organization and safety of a race track. Thanks to numerous sponsors, the winner of each class will receive over $1000.00 cash prize.

“This event is a great venue to introduce would-be racers to competitive drag racing; it's also an event for the most seasoned drag racers,” said Mike Taddoni, one of the event organizers. “Most of all, the All Out Call Out promotes keeping drag racing where it belongs, the race track, not the streets,” he added.

The format of the race was so well received by the local race community that the second event grew to over 136 registered racers, and the stands were packed with fans. It was one of the busiest nights that the Albuquerque Dragway had seen in years. The 2013 installment of the All Out Call Out is shaping up to be even bigger.
