We are well aware the forecast says it’ll stop raining around noon in Holt and we don’t go track hot until 1PM *BUT* the cool temps and NO SUNSHINE after the rain quits is why we have to pull the plug. We pride ourselves in providing a premium and most importantly safe racing surface and the current weather conditions do not permit either. THANK YOU and check back often for schedule updates! – Team ECD

This Year we will again be hosting the 8th Annual Paul Walker Memorial Meet & Race on Saturday November 27th 2021.
Our Annual Event is a fundraiser for Paul Walker’s Foundation , Reach Out World Wide (R.O.W.W.)
So Why do we have this event?
“Besides being Influential in the Car Culture, He was the heart and soul of Reach Out World Wide. Paul was the first one in and the last one out, he led by example and his hard work and dedication inspired everyone who had the privilege of working with him. He led one of the first teams into the hardest hit areas of Haiti and traveled to Chile to bring water, medical aid and hope after the Earthquake and Tsunami. He ran a chainsaw clearing debris and helping people get back into their homes during the hottest days after the tornadoes in Alabama… Some people play a hero, Paul was a hero. Paul was an honorable, hardworking, dedicated, respectful man with a humble spirit who shared his blessings with those who needed it most. It was an honor and a privilege to be able to learn and look up to someone who walked the walk.
This years event will again have the Drag Wars Theme from Pauls 1st Fast & Furious film. We will Have Show & Shine Car Meet , Stereo Competition, photo shoot with the event Models and Anyone with a Tech Card Purchase of $10 Can race their vehicle down that track as many times they wish. The lane winner will receive a free raffle ticket to use on various Donated Items and can race as often as they like down the track. Spectators Can also Purchase Raffle Tickets at our Booth to participate.
We are looking For Committed Vendors and sponsors to join us again this year.

With the 2021 Summit ET Series wrapped up, the results are in and the champions have earned their titles! You might be wondering why were posting this Monday morning a week late considering the ET finals was Sept 24/25, well there’s a good excuse; there was a points tie that needed settled in the JR Dragster category and we didn’t want to put the results out there without that being settled. Summit ET Points Champions earn themselves an ECD “Gold Card” which gets them free race entry to the entire 2022 Summit ET Series AND custom fit/embroidered Jackets.

 


Super Pro ET – Ronnie Jernigan #2262 “The Milk Truck”

 

Ronnie drove his Milk Truck all the way to the runner up position in the finals of round 3 to seal the deal as the 2021 Super Pro ET Points championship with 124points total over points runner up Broxson’s (#712) 116 total points. Congrats Ronnie!


Pro ET – Chris Cox #2261

Chris showed up to the finals with a huge points lead over the rest of the field PRO ET with a SUPER PRO car thinking he had the points wrapped up. Once Cox realized who and how many Pro ET cars showed up, there was a slight chance that if Larry Moore (#65) drove it all the way to the winners circle with no buybacks that he would pass up Cox. A last minute tech card was purchased and Cox hopped in a borrowed car to earn himself 20 points with a first round win and ended up points champ by a mere 2 points as Mr Moore DID in fact drive it all the way to the winners circle with no buy backs!


Sportsman ET – Joey Branhof #H216 “Mr 9.02”

Joey showed up to round 3 with only the 53 points he earned himself as a runner up from round 1, sitting 3rd in points behind Simmons (#501) and Locke (#1850). He needed Simmons to go out in the buyback rounds and to finish better than Locke without having to go to the tower for buybacks himself and everything fell perfectly into place for him and he managed to go home with some nice hardware too, stacking ANOTHER Wally on the shelf that the ole’honda has earned him over the years. Congrats Joey!


Motorcycle ET – Christopher Davis #300 “BIG DAWG” Chop Throttle Motorsports

Christopher managed a semifinal finish in the first round earlier in the year and came in to the points finals 3rd in points, behind Ruffin (#2130) and Whitehead (#51). Whitehead was a no show to the points finals and Ruffin exited the race as a semifinalist while Chris rode all the way to the winners circle AND took home his first ever Wally Trophy! Unfortunately (or fortunately?) he had a hot date he was late for and didn’t stick around for the King of the Track run off amongst the winners but the smile on his face on his way out the door said he was good to go, let someone else have that King of the Track Wally!


JR Dragster ET – Ryan Harrigill #4050

Ryan wrapped up his race day at the Summit ET finals with a total of 55 points, exiting the race in the 3rd round. A quick meeting in the tower with his parents we agreed that anyone else in the points chase couldn’t pass him up and he was the unofficial points champion but a final tally on Monday morning would know for sure. Sure enough, Monday morning here comes Hatcher (#3411) out of nowhere, earning himself 55 points in ONE RACE by taking his hot rod all the way to the winners circle. Oh boy… we have a tie on our hands… thankfully both teams were good sports and agreed to a Friday night runoff in which Ryan was able to defend his unofficial points champion position with a best 2/3 race where he won with a clean sweep. Congrats Ryan!


King of the Track – Larry Moore #65

Larry not only won the Pro ET race in the finals earning himself a Wally Trophy and runner up in the points series but that win earned him a spot to compete for the elusive King of the Track Wally Trophy. Only one of these are given out per NHRA track per year, so you could say its kind of a big deal! Larry lined up against Joey Branhof (sportsman ET event winner) and Jason Kelley (super pro ET event winner) in a late night 3 car shootout and came out on top as the KING OF THE TRACK! Congrats Larry!
