BRISTOL, Tenn. -

The season-opening Street Fights event was held Thursday evening at the Bristol Dragway.

Amateur drag racers from Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina showed up to race their own street legal vehicles.

"I don't have turbo chargers or a loud stereo but I'm out here having fun," Tim Turvyfill, a racer from Boone, N.C. told News 5 WCYB.

The cost is $5 dollars for spectators and $10 to race. Street Fights are held on Thursday nights at the Bristol Dragway.
