    Anyone think about the NEW remodel / Rebuilt Dragway 42 for an event? FINALLY OPENING THIS YEAR AFTER 3 YEARS DOWN AND TOTAL REBUILD.


    Just tossing that one out there.

    they even have autocross events on select Sundays. That might be fun to watch Buicks do turns...LOL. Jim

    It looks very nice, it's 45 mind from me. But they need to run power to the track yet. Right now i heard they are about 4 million over project budget and waiting to find enough money to get electric even run to the track.

    They had a booth at the Piston Power Show last weekend and said they will open May 6th, sounded pretty confident. I plan on racing there this summer, should be a great venue, far better than the washboard it was!

    Washboard it was. My daughter when she was little watched a gasser go down the track and said "Is that thing supposed to bounce around like that? looks dangerous"

    I was out that way dropping off some brackets I made for a farmer, so I snapped these pictures 42 1.JPG 42 2.JPG

    Less than 45 minutes from my house. Looks like no more backing into the burnout box! Gonna have to check it out if I ever do get my car running again this year.

    Yes but they are going to also have auto cross too.... So that might be pretty fun too with the Buicks. :)

    I am sure they would cut a good deal to get things started at the track. Someone with events should just try a call and some ideas.

    Remember you have to support enough cars to get that ALL Buick event. It costs money to rent a track. :) Jim
