PDRA - MARCH 16TH UPDATE
As of Monday, March 16th at 2:00pm EST, all systems are a go for all activities as scheduled. We are in talks with GALOT Motorsports Park, North Carolina officials and more to see how a racing facility fits into the recommendations from their local governments. This is just an update from the PDRA desk because we want to keep you all as updated as possible and just know that things are changing by the hour with the pandemic and virus. The NHRA press release affects NHRA-owned racetracks, the Mello Yello series and the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series - this does not affect PDRA or GALOT Motorsports Park.
We will do our best to keep you updated and informed as often as possible on our social media outlets and on our website, PDRA660.com.
Thanks,
PDRA Staff and Ownership

I doubt this race will take place. Galot is an NHRA sanctioned track. NHRA has suspended racing at their owned and sanctioned tracks for 30 days

PDRA UPDATE - MARCH 18TH AT 12:00PM EASTERN TIME
As of Wednesday, March 18th at noon, we have made the decision to continue going forward with the event until Monday, March 23rd when we will make our final decision on the season-opening PDRA East Coast Nationals, presented by: FuelTech at GALOT Motorsports Park in Benson, NC.
We want to race as bad as anyone and with how rapidly things are changing with this pandemic, we do not want to make a change and be too far ahead. With five more days of data gathering, we will be able to make a better, more defined decision on the 23rd. This will also give us more time to look at master calendars and determine the best plan of attack if a reschedule needs to happen to adapt to all classes and events already on schedule.
We will do our best to keep you informed and updated as often as possible on our social media outlets and on our website, PDRA660.com.


Take care. Tom Worthington

Unless something has changed, they have suspended racing at the tracks they own and suspended NHRA sanctioned racing, but that does not suspend/stop sanctioned tracks from carrying on their racing schedule outside of NHRA events.

Our local track is NHRA sanctioned and had their regular test and tune last night as normal

PDRA Racing is saddened to announce that the PDRA East Coast Nationals, presented by: FuelTech is now postponed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. GALOT Motorsports Park and PDRA Racing officials were both hoping for a turn-around in this worldwide phenomenon that just did not come. For now, we are postponing the event with more information to come at a later date. Be sure to read the press release below from Drag Illustrated for more information regarding the PDRA series as we all look forward to finding a racetrack together soon in 2020.
