The Historic ST THOMAS DRAGWAY WILL CONTINUE ITS REFURBISHMENT IN 2021 !
There are basically only 3 dedicated/operational drag facilities in the province and with the way regulations etc are going the chance that anymore will ever get built/approved is limited at best, so we need to invest in the ones we have.
To bring this historic facility up to date, there were substantial improvements done in 2020 - Repaving & Grinding of the race surface, updated PA system, Washroom improvements, overall facility cleanup etc. We also improved the Guardwall protection on the dragway. The metal Guardrails met all insurance requirements but were not optimal re safety etc. So we added concrete barriers - 100 pieces on each side. For 2021 further enhancements are also planned and we still have spots available re the signage program (see below right) for those wishing to support these enhancements and also advertise your business.
We launched a program in 2020 where you can support all these improvements with signage on sections of the Guardwall in front of the stands.Your support benefits the safety and enjoyment of all the competitor/spectators who come to the facility. The cost is $300(includes hst) for a 2ft x 2ft sign in this section. Your name (company logo) or whatever you want can go on the sign. There will also be signs acknowledging your support re the renewal of Canada's Oldest Dragstrip. With the help of my son Jarrett, Steve Martin and Larry Satchell - we will be contacting all the companies etc. who have signage at the track re this initiative, plus renewing your advertising programs,in addition to looking for class sponsors etc. (we have had some come forward with interest already)
