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.

The Super Charged "Dawg Watch" 2011

Mooresville's own Chris Cline has been busy this winter getting the Christine Plymouth ready for Quick 8 Mad Dawg wars. Seen here at the Gibbs Race Cars shops, Cline has totally redone the rear suspenision on the supercharged entry. Could we see a sub four second pass out of the new light weight Mopar? Will keep you updated.
Veteran drag racer Bobby Baucom of Charlotte, NC has added his name to the Quick 8 Mad Dawg fights in 2011 with his slick running super charged Chevrolet Camaro. Seen here at the Farm, Baucom should be a top threat to collect his first Quick 8 Mad Dawg win come May 28th at the "Dawg House" Mooresville Dragway.
It looks like the Quick 8 Mad Dawgs will be loaded up with tons of great super charged action in 2011. The Kernersville, NC team of Charles and Tracy Terrell have also been busy this winter reworking their Ford Mustang. A new slick blue paint has been applied to the three second running Hemi powered blown Mustang. Terrell will definitely be a contender for a first Quick 8 Mad Dawg win and a place in the new Mega Machine Shop 3 second club.

More to come on the "Dawg Watch" countdown to the May 28th Quick 8 Mad Dawg at Mooresville.
