If you’ve been to ECD since it’s reopened you’ve seen the Hardway Performance sign up on the back lit left lane board but for 2020 we’re shaking things up by partnering with our friends at BD Diesel Performance. You’ll see them at the two big diesel events in March and September with all their products on display and swag for sale, be sure to stop by and check them out! A big thanks goes out to BD Diesel Performance for supporting the Emerald Coast Dragway, we look forward to a great partnership!

The King of the Coast Ben Franklin $5K’s at the Emerald Coast Dragway was a huge success, with just over 250 entries (140 top bulb, 86 bottom bulb and 25 Jr’s) the day was kicked of Saturday morning at 8am with the Jr’s (pictured above) and we managed to wrap everything up by right around 8pm, even with first or second round buybacks! Although Saturday was gorgeous with not a cloud in the sky, our weekend racing plans came to an early end Sunday morning when moisture we didn’t expect until much later in the evening made an early arrival just after day break.
We’d like to thank Gaylon Rolison and the whole KOC crew for bringing great racing to ECD and look forward to racing with them again in the future, definitely again for January 2021, with a possible fall 2020 date on the horizon. Look for official results and more event info to be published from the KOC later this afternoon/evening once they’ve wrapped up their travel back home and get situated.
This weekend we will be hosting the Ben Franklin 5k’s brought to you by the BTE King of the Coast Bracket Racing Series. We are expecting 200+ cars on property this weekend with 3 separate all run field races to be completed Saturday & Sunday. Friday evening will be a test & tune open only to those competing in the weekend’s race. If you are looking for a place to test we unfortunately will not be able to accommodate you this weekend.
For those racing with us this weekend, let us know if you need to get in early and we’d be happy to get you situated, we’ll have plenty of M1 and other various VP racing fuels on hand and if there’s ANYTHING else we can do for you, feel free to shoot us a PM.
For those looking for a place to race or test, Powerhouse Motorsports Park to our east is racing 28X/True Street/Factory Street & 6.50 on Saturday and Atmore Dragway to our west is doing test & tune Sunday afternoon.
Due to a terrible race weekend weather forecast our NHRA Summit ET Series 2020 season opener has been postponed to February 22nd. We will be editing our website and Facebook event dates now to reflect these changes. We appreciate those of you who planned on racing with us and hope to see you all in February. Don’t forget, January 24-26 the BTE King of the Coast Bracket Racing Series will be joining us, if you haven’t signed up yet there’s still room in a few classes for 3 days of great racing! Thank you! -ECD
