AUTO THRILL SHOW

Thirty "Hell Drivers" risk life, limb and vehicles, crashing cars and performing other stunts in a daring high-speed show. Among the features of the program are: four-car bumper tag, wing ski jumps (drivers careen off a low ramp on two wheels at 50 miles an hour), a crash rollover contest, and the "dive bomber crash" (off the ramp with an old car onto the top of a parked car). In the show's climax, a driver pilots a truck on a dangerous ramp-to-ramp "flight," hurtling more than 70 feet through the air. The 5,600-seat Auto Thrill Stadium has a banked figure-8 track, the first such track to be created exclusively for stunt driving.

* Admission: box seats, $2.00; center seats, $150; general admission, $1.00.
* Performances: four shows daily on week-days, six on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays; the performance last about one hour.
