Yes, seems like an even split. Some went to Atco, some went to Island.

I chose to primarily race in Index stuff this year so I am split mainly between Atco and Cecil.

Drove up to the airport gate yesterday, track looks abandon. Entire pit side asphalt has 1 foot tall weeds growing through it. Nothing going on and no cars parked.

I thought they held off shit canning everyone until they aquired all necessary permits, but lately I've been hearing the town keeps shutting them down and not issuing the permits they need. I hope this is true. I hope they never get permission and this deal fucks them in the ass. And I know that even if it does, it's a pipe dream that drag racing will return and it'll likely wind up a strip mall but I can hope. I'd rather have a drag strip run by Al Sharpton and Jeffrey Dahmer than an eTown salvage yard any day.

Funny how all these rumors about the track re-opening float around after 30 years of rumors of the track being sold......

People really have nothing better to do with their spare time I guess.

Going to be hard to race there with no equipment left.........





LOL, I think you are being a little douche baggy arent you? Whats wrong with people talking about what they heard? Even through the track was run like shit, I don't think anyone is happy about Etown closing, any track closing sucks.



You were wrong about the track closing, telling people they had no idea what they were saying and yet you are still acting holier than thou. Seems you suffer from the same malady you are accusing everyone else of.

been drag racing there since 1998, was there for the scrap meet to hear any news about drag racing and what the place looks like since i havent been there since test and tune november of 2017.


there are copart cars parked there the rumors of them not being able to b/c of permits is BS. I talked to personal that worked there depending on who you talked too, some seem to think that the drag racing will return as early as next year but not to the NHRA as the slow down is to short. Others had less hope and said that it wont reopen and they plan to sell even more property to copart making drag racing impossible and making the swap meet area even smaller. Each person i talked too had a different story and rumor to many for me to post here atm




idk what to believe but after being there and seeing the salvaged cars parked and where they were parked leads me to believe that drag racing is done there



will post copart car pics soon

The first year of no Drag Racing is almost over, that's a lot of money to park only a few cars as a Rental. Copart could have bought a piece of land in another spot and maybe saved some money ?

Yup.

Better question is, does anyone know how long Copart's lease is for? That would help weed thru some of the most recent rumors I've heard.
