Miramichi Dragway signs on as an NHRA Member Track and will host an NHRA National Open in 2016!
NHRA officials have announced that Miramichi Dragway, has joined the NHRA Member Track Network as part of Division 1, the Northeast Division.
Over the last several years, facility owner Rodolphe Savoie has shown his commitment to the sport of drag racing time and time again, and with the help of local supporters, has turned Miramichi Dragway into a top notch drag racing facility. The fact that NHRA has come onboard as sanctioning body is further proof that Miramichi Dragway is capable of hosting world class events, and with that, have been awarded a National Open to the track in 2016.
Facility Manager Marc Comeau says "This is
a huge boost for our facility. Local racers have known for a
long time that Miramichi is a great facility, and with this
announcement, the rest of
Sportsman racers will now have the
opportunity to win a Wally, and perhaps just as importantly,
receive a coveted grade point required to attend one of NHRA's
National events, and it can be done right in their own back yard
"We feel very fortunate to host events like the Downeast Nationals, ADRA Racing, the Atlantic Pro Tree Series, The All-Out Race, The Fall Brawl and the Atlantic Canadian Stock/Superstock tour at our facility, and now the addition of a National Open, we have all built something to be proud of" says Rodolphe. "Many of our local racers have already enjoyed great success on the North American stage. I believe that many more of our local racers are just as capable of such success, and now they will all have the chance to show their skills"
The NHRA National Open will be held July 29,30 2016. Stay tuned for more information and details to come.
