Intro to Drag Racing
August 18 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm$245
You Asked, and ProFormance Delivers!
We’re adding professional instruction on a Pacific Raceways favorite motorsport this summer during our Twilight Sessions (4-9pm). If you’ve ever wanted to learn drag racing you’re about to get your wish.
The love of drag racing in the Northwest runs deep, and Pacific Raceways has hosted all the big name drivers, up to and including Big Daddy Don Garlits, Shirley Muldowney (they made the movie Heart Like a Wheel in our backyard) and Don “The Snake” Prudhomme (also a movie subject). Many NHRA competitors consider Pacific Raceways their preferred track, which might be why they’ve set so many records here.
The ProFormance Drag Racing program will take place on the NHRA quarter- mile track. It will use the full lighting and timing system and will be conducted by Pacific Raceways general manager and NHRA Champion John Ramsey. As a participant you’ll learn about the Christmas tree, proper timing and launch, and you’ll get to compete on the dragstrip with with fellow ProFormance drivers. No experience required.
This summer will bring another opportunity to compete against time – and against your ProFormance friends. A timed competition in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course of rubber cones, Autocross is a favorite motorsport for drivers who enjoy developing their skills. Points are deducted for hitting cones, missing gates, and the inability to stop properly in the box at course end.
