May 19 2018 – Southern Nitrous Racer Association Pro Mods will be in town along with the staging lanes packed full of heads up racing action, proceeds to benefit the Harrell family.

An auto accident involving an impaired driver hitting 4 members of our ECD team head on has resulted in the loss of 17yr old Sidney Michaela Dowdy and her sister 7yr old Stormie Harrell.  Not only were these girls regulars at the track but they are the children of Matt (and Melanie) Harrell whom you may know as the loud guy with the head set on often found in the front of the staging lanes and the sisters of Devon Harrell whom you may know as the guy on the starting line flipping the starter switch for you and putting out the flames when your car decides to catch on fire. While these girls had health insurance through both parents jobs, they did not have life insurance.

The Emerald Coast Dragway will donate 50% of Saturday’s proceeds after race purse payout and expenses to the family.

East River Smoke House has donated 1000 BBQ sandwich plates with 100% of the proceeds going to the family.

Hobbie Lee has donated 100% of proceeds from photo sales for the weekend to the family.

Support is pouring in like crazy… $15 Friday, $20 Saturday, $30 for a weekend pass, kids 12 & under in free. Gates at 4pm on Friday, 10am Saturday, weekend camping is welcome with a weekend pass.  Lets pack the house and make sure this racing family has one less thing to worry about!


  • Thank you so much for the outpouring of love you have shown for my nephew and his family. I am very grateful.
