The Emerald Coast Dragway will not be opening for its planned Friday Frenzy on May 11th or the NHRA Summit ET Series race planned for May 12th.

This past Sunday afternoon, an SUV containing 4 members of the ECD team was struck head on by an impaired driver near Pensacola, claiming the lives of 17 year old Sidney Micheala Dowdy that you’ve likely seen behind the glass in the tower or handing out ET slips as well as her 7 year old sister Stormie Harrell whom you’ve likely seen running around the pits or playing in the tower if you’re a regular at ECD.  These girls are the daughters of Matthew Harrell whom you all know as the guy with the head set in the front of the staging lanes and the sister of Devon Harrell whom is our starter and head of special projects here at the track and ultimately children and sisters to all of us who call ECD home.

May 19th we have decided to make the SNRA Pro Mod race a benefit race with proceeds benefitting the Harrell family, that along with the May 18th Friday Frenzy preceding the Pro Mod race will be our next scheduled openings.  More details to follow on that in the near future. Your patience and understanding is appreciated at this time. -Team ECD
