Dodge Friday celebrated the return of the wildly successful Roadkill Nights event to Detroit. First introduced last year, the event is aimed at car enthusiasts of all types and allows them to enjoy a night of drag racing and carnival-like fun free of charge.
This year’s edition of Roadkill Nights attracted more than 30,000 performance enthusiasts. Unlike in 2015 where the drag racing was held in a parking lot, the races were this year held right on Woodward Avenue itself – a scene that for some brought back memories of the days when muscle cars would race between the lights on Woodward.
In addition to the legal street races, Dodge offered fans thrill rides in the Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat and Dodge Viper. Food trucks, a car show, live music and giveaways also kept attendees entertained during the day-long event, which ran from 12 noon to 10 p.m.
If you missed Roadkill Nights from Detroit, you can relive it through the recap video above. Dodge has yet to say if the event will return for 2017, but considering the strong turn out this year and in 2015, we’d be shocked to see it get shelved.
