For a while, it looked like our dragstrip might not even open this year. A true Redding institution, the longest continuously operating NHRA dragstrip in the known universe was looking for new management. Luckily, Shirlene Bramson of Bramson Drag Strip stepped up to fill the leadership role. In short order, she and a host of volunteers have hustled up the work to get the strip ready for another season. Tonight is the first Street Legal event, and it comes in the nick of time, as we know there has been some illegal and extremely dangerous street racing taking place in the absence of the track.
ATTENTION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:
We wanted you to know that, in our attempt to support activities for the youth of Redding and surrounding areas, high school students get into street legal races for FREE!
All you need is a valid student ID. That’s it. Have a valid CA driver’s license, too? You can race a street legal event for FREE!
We hope to see more high school students in the stands tonight!
Always more at http://ReddingDragstrip.net. But there’s a good deal more activity and chatter about the track at their Facebook page:
