Yep....that leaves us with Panama Beach Dragway as the only thing relatively close. Or we will just have to make that 3 hour trip to one of the "nearby" 1/4 mile strips.

Sorry to hear this.
My brother lived close to the track, and when we visit down yonder, we always miss race days.

I live 10 miles from this track and will miss it. It was not run with the greatest of efficency but it was convenient and nice to go on Fridays and Sundays. I hope someone reopens it but I doubt it. If it were reopened as a quarter mile and run the way it should be it would be a gold mine.

The closing of the track was forced upon the current group that leased it. The bank is taking over the property from the actuall owner from what I understand.

Yep....we had Emerald Coast Dragway (Holt-closed) and Panama Beach Dragway--both 1/8 mile tracks. And our 1/4 mile tracks are in Montgomery, AL... Valdosta, GA... Gainesville, FL...and Gulfport, MS. All about 3-4 hours away.

Sure wish someone that really cared would buy it and make a quarter mile.....would take deep pockets though. I doubt we'll ever see it open again.
