Photos: Hot Wheels races at Tucson Dragway

It's a showdown at Tucson Dragway! The nitro-burning and jet-fueled monsters of the midway! But wait, no ear protection needed at THIS race? No alcohol burn in the throat? That's because it's a Hot Wheels race. Tucson Dragway has parked the full-sized fun due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. But that doesn't stop them from a pint-sized race each week.

The Star's Ryan Finley writes, "(Track manager Matt) DeYoung, a onetime freelance photographer now running the track, uses iMovie software to turn each 6-or-7-second race into a slick production. Three iPhones film each race from different angles, often in slow motion. Alan Reinhart, “The Voice of NHRA” and a longtime Tucson resident, calls the races."
