MAY 2ND RACE UPDATE!

The ECD Bracket & Index Bash is in for May 2nd, SNRA Pro-Mods are moved to June 20th!

We held out as long as possible waiting on the glimmer of hope that things would be back to normal for our SNRA Pro-Mod show but it just didn’t work out that way.  The huge price tag of a Pro-Mod operation means racing for big $$$ purses, those big $$$ purses come from packing the stands with fans, without any clear guidance as to whether or not we’re even able to pack the stands or not and time was ticking away with little/no promotion going on while we twiddled our thumbs waiting… we just flat out ran out of time and were forced to postpone to June 20th.

HOWEVER! There’s a huge group of ET and Index competitors chomping at the bit for a place to race and we just so happen to have that place.  Assuming the FL stay at home order is lifted April 30th and we are free and clear to proceed with business as usual, our plans are as follows:

Super Pro / Box
Pro ET / No Box
Sportsman / FB
Junior ET
Motorcycle ET
6.0 Index
6.50 Index
7.0 Index
8.0 Index

Friday May 1st, Friday Frenzy test & tune, gates open by 5PM, track hot 6-11PM. Your race day tech cards and wristbands will get you in the gate and on the track Friday night! Those of you not sticking around for race day normal $15+$10 pricing applies.

Saturday gates open at 9AM, track hot no later than 11 for open shakedowns, to the lanes by class for two rounds of qualifying / time shots by 12PM, eliminations to follow.

$20 at the gate for crew / spectators, drivers entry covered by their race tech card, kids 12 & under free!

LETS RACE!!!

ATTENTION IN THE PITS!

We’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that unless you’re joining us for private testing, the month of April is shot for drag racing, we know… it sucks but unfortunately not a lot any of us can do about it. In accordance with the Florida Governors stay at home orders, all public events for the month of April at ECD have been cancelled.

The good news is, we’ve got a full calendar ready for you all as soon as they let us out of our houses! May 2nd is SNRA Pro Mods, May 9th is ECD N/T Series, May 16th is Summit ET Series and the list goes on!

In the meantime, private testing is going on in groups of 10 or less, shoot us a PM, email to ryan@raceecd.com or text 8506033991for more info.

Friday Frenzy on April 3rd and the Summit ET Series for Saturday April 4th has been cancelled, the next Summit ET date will be Saturday May 16th. Based on recent guidance it looks like we’ll be “shut down” throughout the rest of April but with the hopes of being able to do something this month we will be taking things week by week instead of wiping the whole month off the schedule so… stay tuned! -ECD

The Emerald Coast Dragway will be closed to all public events for at least the remainder of March. We won’t go into details but there is simply no way around it during this time of madness. We very much hope things go back to normal in the early weeks of April and will advise you all as to when we can operate, as soon as we receive further guidance.
Until that “all clear” message comes through, the only thing we can possibly do at this time is private testing, if anyone’s interested we’d love to test out our new sprayer…. see details here – https://raceecd.com/track-rental/

After careful consideration and much deliberation on the subject, ECD has decided to remain open in basic capacity for public testing amidst concerns of the situation surrounding the coronavirus.  We are an outdoor facility operating on 37 acres with plenty of opportunity for social distancing while still partaking in the sport we enjoy and love. Current recommendation from CDC and guidance from Okaloosa County suggests no public gathering of 50 or more so drivers/crew please clear the staging lanes and start line after your pass we should never even get close to that number.

Friday March 20th hours are 5-11pm

Sunday March 22nd hours are 12-6pm

$25 for drivers, $15 for crew, kids 12 & under free.

The weekend of March 27-29, while we have plans in place are still TBD based on how this weekend goes and updated guidance…. stay tuned, we all want to race as bad as you do – WE PROMISE!
