This upcoming weekend will be a busy one at the Emerald Coast Dragway! Friday Frenzy, Summit ET Series on Saturday and ECD Moto Days on Sunday, all wrapped up with a $10 Tuesday leading into early next week!
Friday August 10th will be our Friday Frenzy, a well prepped all run all welcome test & tune on Friday night also including the 850 top ten list monthly races! Gates open 5PM, track hot 6PM, sunset 735PM, 850 top ten drivers meeting at 8PM and we race under the lights until 11PM. $15 at the gate for crew/spectators, drivers are $25, kids 12 & under free.
Saturday August 11th is our NHRA Summit ET Series points race! Super Pro ET, Pro ET, Sportsman ET, Motorcycle ET, Grumpys Diesel Jr Dragster ET as well as 5.0/6.0/7.0/8.0 Index classes battling it out for cash purse and series points. Gates at 3PM, tech inspection 4PM, time shots at 5PM, eliminations to begin 7PM (735pm sunset) and we race until last racer standing in each category. $20 at the gate for crew/spectators, drivers get in w/their tech card, kids 12 & under free. We have VP racing fuels on hand for everyone and plenty of it! Nitrous fill available at the track as well.
Sunday August 12th is our ECD Moto Days. Bring your motorcycle, bring your go-kart, bring whatever you want to rip around through the pit roads with. Be there at 9AM, drivers meeting at 945AM, course goes hot at 10AM, ride til 2PM. Afternoon thunderstorms forecasted so plan accordingly w/travel plans for those of you heading our way on 2 wheels without a trailer. $40 to ride, $10 to watch, kids 12 & under $20 to ride or free to watch.
Ten Dollar Tuesday returns Tuesday August 14th! $10 gets you in the gate, if you want to go down the track stop by the tech shack to fill out a free tech card and make as many laps as you want! Aimed at our street car crowd but race cars are welcome too. Street cars won’t get the cone that pushes them out of the groove on Ten Dollar Tuesdays, track will be kept clean and safe but glue will be kept to a minimum. Bring your hot rod out, pop the hood, show it off, turn that stereo up, make as many laps as you want… tonight is your night! Looking at potentially running another Tuesday on the 28th, attendance on the 14th will dictate that… so come on out and show your support!
Despite the terrible forecast and weather leading up to the days of the race the stubbornness between the folks at RT productions and The Emerald Coast Dragway crew insisted we race anyhow and boy are we glad we did! 34 cars raced with us Friday, 10 more showed up to race with us on Saturday & Sunday and we all had a blast with what turned out to be perfect racing weather throughout the entire weekend. Congratulations to all our winners and major thank you to all who showed up to support our first annual Back 2 School race here at The Emerald Coast Dragway. We’re looking for twice the cars and twice the fun next year so keep this weekend next year open in your calendars!

Due to endless amounts of rain this week, the clouds breaking on us today at 1pm won’t be enough to get all the moisture off the track tonight to safely run test & tune tonight so tonight will be early parking only for our guests racing with us this weekend. Gates open at 9am tomorrow and track will be hot at 10AM for our “Back to School” Jr Dragster weekend racing program!
NHRA Summit ET Series returns to Emerald Coast Dragway on Saturday August 11th! Get your series points in and jump in an index class or two for double to triple the chances at taking home some money! All classes (except Grumpys Diesel JR Dragster!) are 100% payback, more cars = more money! Multi classing and double entering ok, we’ll do our best to accommodate but ultimate it’s up to the drivers to make the call to the lanes!
Gates open 3PM Saturday, tech inspection at 4PM, time shots at 5PM & racing to begin immediately following opening ceremonies at 7PM. $20 at the gate for crew/spectators, kids 12 & under free, drivers get in with their tech cards.
Those of you looking for test & tune, we’d like to encourage you to get in a class that you most closely fit in, if that doesn’t work get a hold of us and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
