WHAT IT IS
A FAIRGROUNDS STYLE VENUE (YES, CENTERED AROUND AN 1/8TH MILE DRAG STRIP) WHICH WILL BE COMMONLY AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FOLLOWING BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
DRAG RACING - OUR MAIN FOCUS IS CATERED TO REGISTERED AND INSPECTED VEHICLES, DEDICATED RACING CARS WITH MUFFLED EXHAUSTS, GO-KARTS, R/C CARS AND OTHERS ALIKE.
OTHER AREAS THAT WE ARE EXCITED TO HOST ARE:
CAR SHOWS - SWAP MEETS - VENDOR & CRAFT FAIRS - FOOD TRUCK FESTIVALS - COMMUNITY EVENTS - CHARITY EVENTS & FUNDRAISERS - PRIVATE RENTALS - DRIVERS EDUCATION CLASSES - SPECIALIZED TRAINING FOR POLICE, FIRE, EMT, ETC.
WHAT IT IS NOT!
WHAT YOU SEE ON TELEVISION - (ESPN’S NHRA COVERAGE, DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S “STREET OUTLAWS” OR THE MOVIE FERNGULLY)
EXCESSIVELY LOUD - AGAIN, THE CARS THAT WILL BE ATTENDING ARE STREET CARS (THE SAME ONES THAT ARE ON ON PUBLIC ROADS ALREADY). THERE WILL BE NO OPEN HEADERS, DRAGSTERS, FUNNY CARS, PRO MODS, PRO STOCKS OR ALTEREDS.
THE TYPE OF CARS THIS FACILITY IS DESIGNED FOR ARE KNOWN TO BE QUIETER THAN YOUR NEIGHBORS LAWN MOWER. IF ONLY YOUR NEIGHBOR COULD MOW HIS LAWN IN THE 7 SECONDS IT TAKES FOR A RACE TO OCCUR.
ADDRESSING THE FALSE NARRATIVE
“THURS - SUN, 8AM TO 10PM"
THESE ARE PROPOSED HOURS OF OPERATION, NOT WRITTEN IN STONE AND WILL BE NEGOTIATED. OUR OBLIGATION AS YOUR NEIGHBORS ARE THAT NOBODY WILL BE WOKEN UP, SLEEP DEPRIVED OR PREVENTED FROM ENJOYING THEIR BACKYARDS INCLUDING US. KEEP IN MIND, OTHER TRACKS HAVE IMPLEMENTED A “NO START BEFORE 10AM” RULE ON THEIR OWN ACCORD. THIS IS SOMETHING WE WOULD LIKE TO DO. ALSO, DRAG RACING IS NOT WHAT WE WILL BE DOING EVERYDAY, OTHER EVENTS WILL BE COORDINATED ON THESE PROPOSED DAYS…
THURSDAY: DRAG RACING 10-6PM,
FRIDAY: DRAG RACING 10- 6PM,
SAT: FOOD TRUCK FESTIVAL,
SUN: CAR SHOW/CHARITY EVENT
NOT EVERY WEEK WILL BE FILLED WITH EVENTS,
AS EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW, EVENTS TAKE TIME TO COORDINATE.
OF COURSE THERE WILL BE RULES. SFI APPROVED SAFETY EQUIPMENT FOR THE VEHICLES AS WELL AS DRIVERS WILL BE STANDARD. SAFETY, SECURITY AND SANITATION ARE ALL TOP PRIORITY. ALL INSURANCE REGULATIONS WILL ALSO BE IN PLACE.
TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST, THE NHRA AND IHRA ORGANIZATIONS ARE NOT THE RIGHT FIT FOR OUR SMALL COMMUNITY. FORTUNATELY, OUR SUPPORT GROUP HAS GROWN SO MUCH THAT WORD GOT BACK TO THE FOLKS AT THE AHRA. WE ARE EXCITED TO BEGUN DISCUSSIONS WITH THEM.
PLEASE CLICK ON THEIR LOGO BELOW TO LEARN ABOUT ONE OF THE OLDEST
SANCTIONING BODIES IN RACING HISTORY.
ANY ADDITIONAL CONCERNS
WE ARE WORKING WITH A TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
ENGINEERS, SURVEYORS, DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION, NOISE AND TRAFFIC EXPERTS. THIS IS GOING TO BE A WELL THOUGHT OUT PROJECT WHERE CONCERNS WILL BE ADDRESSED AND MITIGATED IF NEEDED.
A NOTE FROM THE OWNERS
“Our proposed drag strip is much more than a place to safely and legally enjoy our passion for racing. It is a place to bring the entire community together no matter what interests, or lack thereof they may have. We feel extremely disheartened to have our own neighbors spread such falsehoods about plans and intentions. We chose this town to build because we live here too. Our businesses are here, our children go to school here and we pay taxes here. Let’s work together to make this town prosper. Get these children off the streets, off drugs, TIKTOK, and video games. Let them and the grown ups enjoy their hobbies. We NEED this for our community as proven by the outpouring of support, let’s make this happen!"
"If You Build It, They Will Run."
