Tech card prices for drag racers, which is the price racers pay to enter a driver and car, are set to increase beginning in April. In addition, drag racers who stay overnight for race weekends will be charged a modest camping fee, according to John Ramsey, raceway general manager. Read more here…
“We tried to hold the line on price increases for a number of years and were actually slated to raise prices last year before the pandemic hit,” said Ramsey, who added that with a lot of people out of work in early 2020 the track decided to keep prices consistent. “There were a lot of things unknown early last year and we were not sure even how many events we could do. What turned out hurting us significantly was that we couldn’t have spectators for any of our events – large or small. We were able to have participants and essential crew members for our drag races and road course events, but not having spectators was a financial hit.”
Tech cards for all classes of the A Street Automotive Gold Cup Series increase $10 across the board. Tech cards for the Cornwell Tools Junior Dragster Series, which had a fee increase in 2019, do not change, nor does Junior Street. Friday and weekend test and tune tech cards increase by $10. Wednesday night test and tune prices will stay at $40. Crew and spectator admission increase by $5, with the exception of Wednesday night prices, which stay at $15.
New for 2021 is a flat $25 overnight fee for drag racers staying for one- or two-nights during race weekends. Overnight, or camping fees, do not apply to the NHRA Northwest Nationals or the Lucas Oil Drag Race Series in 2021. Spectators are not allowed on the property overnight.
