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.

Mooresville Banquet Honors the Gaint Killer Eddie Moore

I have often said that bracket racing/drag racing has always been the people's sport. Eddie Moore proved that once again this past year as he won the BIGGEST drag race in his whole racing career. "The Giant Killer" Moore took on the southeast's best to take the 2010 IHRA Summit TEAM FINAL TOP ET CHAMPIONSHIP representing TEAM MOORESVILLE MAD DAWG at the Farmington hosted Team Finals in September. Eddie was presented a special Champions Poster along with regular season points champions Chris Warren (TOP Eliminator), Chris Plott (Foot Brake), Mitchell Harkey (4x Junior Dragster), Sonya Byrd (Real Street) and Scottie Keller (Motorcycles). His biggest supporter and fan, daughter LeAnn was presented the "Crew Person of the Year" by Jody Leazer. She is probably as tough on Eddie as he on himself at the races and can be found right there in the waterbox with her dad.
