Ice Cube to Rock the Stage at Pontiac's Roadkill Nights: An Enthusiast's Dream Event

Attention, car enthusiasts and music lovers! Get ready for a thrilling experience like no other as rapper Ice Cube takes the stage at Pontiac's Roadkill Nights event later this month. This one-day motorsports extravaganza, powered by Dodge and presented by MotorTrend, promises an action-packed day full of drag racing, simulator rides, exhibitions, live entertainment, and more.

Mark your calendars for August 12, 2023, as Roadkill Nights moves to a new and exciting location in downtown Pontiac, Michigan. Famous for its street-legal drag racing on Woodward Avenue, this event has now become a must-attend for any true muscle car enthusiast. The new location at the corner of Woodward Avenue and West Pike Street offers an expanded fan experience and the chance to witness some of the most impressive drag racing action on the streets.

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. and runs until 9 p.m., with Ice Cube set to perform at 7:30 p.m., making it a day you won't want to miss. General admission spectator tickets are only $25, and children aged 12 and younger get free entry. Pontiac residents can take advantage of a discounted ticket price of $15 at the door.

For those looking to make the most of the experience, cruise-in tickets and packages are available, some of which include merchandise and entry to a VIP viewing area. The Dodge Thrill Rides offer fans a chance to experience the power of Hellcat-powered Dodge street machines, as pro drivers take them on exhilarating high-speed rides.

Roadkill Nights is not just about the racing and excitement; it's also about celebrating the rich history of cruising Woodward Avenue. As a longstanding tradition in the Motor City, Woodward Avenue has been the stage for countless impromptu drag races over the years, serving as an unofficial proving ground for testing vehicles against local racers.

With the event becoming increasingly popular each year, Tim Kuniskis, the Dodge brand's chief executive officer, expressed excitement about the Pontiac stop serving as the second of two Roadkill Nights events in 2023. What started as a grassroots event has now evolved into a can't-miss occasion for any muscle car enthusiast.

So, whether you're a drag racing fanatic, a music lover eager to see Ice Cube perform, or simply someone looking for an unforgettable day of entertainment, join us on August 12, 2023, in downtown Pontiac for one of the most unique and exhilarating enthusiast events of the year. See you at Roadkill Nights!
