Welcome to Drag City News

Here's a breif history of what Drag City News was and is now. It was a newspaper started back in 1976 by then Farmington Dragway track operators Jim Turner and Jerry Joyce to PROMOTE racing at Farmington, but to also give their racers extra exposure to the world. Enter Norman Drouilard, Sr, with out his connections in the newspaper printing world, there wouldn't have been a DCN. Again it featured Race Results, Up coming events and features on racers ...but most importantly it had PICTURES. Later I brought it back to life PROMOTING the Carolina Coalition. Like everything else in this world it has gone to computers. There quicker to update and don't cost as much to do. BUT there is still nothing like seeing pictures in news print. What I hope to do here is bring back a little of that past and mix it with todays modern blog.

I want to go back it time, but not get stuck there. I want to keep a posting on local track races, race results and it's racers. Bascicly have a daily newspaper for anyone interested in the world of drag racing.

Quick 8 Mad Dawg Warriors On the Move for 2011

News in from the "We Fly Together" race team is that the two time Mooresville Mad Dawg winning Chevrolet Corvette has been sold. The "Rock" says there is a new Camaro in the works....more to come.
Charles and Tracy Terrell broke into the "THREE SECOND ZONE" recently at a Quick 8 at Coastal Plains with their supercharged Ford Mustang. That was also in legal Piedmont Big Dog weight. This could be interesting come the first dog race April of 2011.

The husband and wife Mad/Big Dog team of Jamie and Ghia Chappell are in a rock and a hard spot going into 2011. Their ex-Pro Stock Pontiac built by Stroupe Race Cars was a good tenth behind the competition last year with their 632 Albert built motor. Jamie is looking to either step up to a BIGGER motor or drop back to the Renegade class. The new Piedmont weight rules favorite the bigger cubes in 2011?!?
