The Radial Fest, held twice annually at the iconic Huntsville Dragway in Alabama, has quickly become one of the staples in radial tire drag racing, thanks in large part to the record-setting track and weather conditions the events afford each spring and fall. The Radial Fest produced the first ever 3-second pass by a radial tire car back in the fall of 2014 when Brad Edwards went 3.99 in his twin-turbo Mustang, and the big numbers haven’t stopped falling there since.
With spring upon us, the Radial Fest is gearing up for another edition, to be held on the weekend of April 29-30, and for the first time, the entire event will be broadcast to a worldwide audience right here on Dragzine via the SpeedVideo livestreaming channel. The event will once again feature the kingpins of radial tire racing, the Pro 315 (Radial vs The World) class, along with X275, Outlaw 275, King of the Street, and Mean Street, as well as 6.00 and 7.00 Index.
Below is the press release from SpeedVideo regarding the upcoming live feed coverage.
Radial Fest has become one of the hottest events on the drag radial tour thanks to it’s outstanding track conditions and beautiful weather, both spring and fall.

“At every Radial Fest event there has been a three-second pass and some sort of world record set, whether it’s in Radial vs The World, X275, or Outlaw 275,” said Jones. “This year, we will continue to build on our past success by working to increase purses and improve the overall experience for both racers and fans.”
