Welcome to 4.70 Thunder!
The 4.70 Thunder Drag Racing Series is a “Door Slamming, Blower Screaming, Nitrous Burning” type of drag racing at Empire Dragway
Empire Dragway’s 4.70 Thunder series was founded in 2013 by Bob Jaus, a well-known and long-time racer at the track. Bob decided there was a need for a new class and that the series would be a good fit for Empire Dragway as there were quite a few cars running too fast for Super Pro but not fast enough for Quick 8.
The series is a heads up racing class that utilizes an index of 4.70 with a pro tree. Cars in this class feature door style cars equipped with motor power ranging from blowers, nitrous, and turbo charged with no engine or horsepower size limitation. High speeds and adrenaline rush make this class one of Empire Dragway’s crowd favorites. And, due to the uniqueness of the 4.70 Thunder series and the vacancy of this class in other tracks nearby, the class continues to grow each year with drag racers traveling from several surrounding cities to participate in the series.
