PPIR Drag Days: June 5

Arm drop 1/8 mile Drag Racing

June 5 PPIR Drag Day: Arm drop 1/8 mile Drag Racing

The first 2016 PPIR Drag Day is June 5!

PPIR Drag Days feature hand-drop style, straight up, grudge match drag races on a 1/8th mile drag strip. PPIR’s unique pit-lane drag strip allows for full acceleration straight down the strip and upon crossing the finish line the deceleration area blends right onto the 1-mile banked oval. PPIR Drag Days are non-competition events and are solely intended to be for fun.

Track Hot: 9:00am - 4:00pm

All 4-wheeled street cars are welcome to participate and most modified 4-wheel production cars will be allowed. Vehicles NOT eligible to participate include, but are not limited to; rail cars, funny cars, go-karts, motorcycles, scooters, 3-wheel vehicles, side-by-sides, buggies, and off-road vehicles.  The eligibility of a vehicle to participate is ultimately at the discretion of PPIR. Other vehicles that may not be allowed on track are older cars with inadequate brake systems (drum brakes) and/or safety features.  If you are uncertain whether your vehicle will qualify to participate, please consult the PPIR Track Manager (jared@ppir.com).

PPIR reserves the right to not allow any vehicle to participate for any reason. If a vehicle is highly modified for speed purposes (increased horse-power and torque well beyond factory capability) and lacks equivalent safety modifications (roll protection, racing seat, racing safety harness) it is possible that the vehicle will not be allowed to participate.
