Engines are primed and ready for the Southern Nationals stock car race in Waco

It's pedal-to-the-metal-time for stock cars from around the country at the Heart O' Texas Speedway for their Southern Nationals race.

The race goes from September 5 - 8 and will have drivers competing for $11,000 in prize money.

It won't be easy for the 370 or so cars all vying for a spot in the final. Drivers from New Mexico, Colorado, Louisiana, Kansas and Arkansas will be pushing around 7,000 rpm while dodging over 20 cars on the track at once.
