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.

In Memory of Doug McGraw

We've lost another member of our great racing family today Doug McGraw. Doug was a truly great racer and a true weekly warrior. I was proud to have presented him the LeftOver National weekend Points Championship back in 2006, when Mike and I were operating Mooresville. It was always a pleasure to see Doug and his family, "the Cooterback crew" , riding the golf cart around the track. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Good Bless.
