Ok, here’s the deal. For a long time, some of us racers have wanted to set up a permanent sand drag strip at the Oregon Dunes here in Florence, Oregon. Well it might be happening.

We’ve found a property owner who owns private dunes right off Hwy 101 in Florence, who’s willing to cover the cost of making a flat 300’ sand drag strip with timing system (starting lights, mph, 60ft/300ft times), food, camping for fees similar to Albany drags ($10 entry & overnite, $25 test n tunes, sportsman races, $40 pro). To begin it would be once a month, YEAR ROUND. Dates would NEVER conflict with Albany Sand Drag’s dates so we can all attend both.

It would be Family as well as racer friendly, open to everyone, from riders who’ve never had a shot at running thro the lights, kids, their parents, sportsman riders/racers, pro racers, quads, custom drag bikes, side by sides and organized so every type & class of rider wanting to race can have fun and get some serious racing done too.

We’re waiting on the city to process the permit to proceed with the first event (targeting Sept. 25/26), but before the owner starts spending the money to pull this all together, he’s asked us to give him some feedback about rider/racers’ interest.

So would you be interested in a real sand drag track in Florence? Would you come use the facility often with the entry fees noted above? Any feedback, comments, suggestions, excitement you might have & we can share with the land owner would be appreciated so he can be encouraged to move ahead. Send your input to me here at this thread or at [email protected]. Thanks!
