Eastern Members - Drag Races this weekend around Philly?
06-29-2012, 11:19 AM
My car is not ready to hit the track yet but I would like to go see some drag racing this weekend. I'm not sure where the area tracks are located and if they run Friday or Saturday night or both. Not looking for anything special just a "street night" is fine. If you would post the name of the track, what night they run, and the city/state that would be great!

Cecil is fun. It's in Rising Sun, MD, about 45 minutes from West Chester. $15 to run. $10 to watch and you can drink (no glass bottles) - http://www.cecilcountydragway.com/
Atco annoys me (In Jersey) - http://www.atcorace.com/
Never be to E-town (In Jersey) - http://www.etownraceway.com/
Maple Grove is the nicest track around. Not sure on pricing as I haven't been in a couple years. It's southeast of Reading - http://www.maplegroveraceway.com/blog/
Check their website's for the schedules. They will be listed.

Cecil or atco is your best bet. I know your not from around here and cecil is very easy to get to. Its literally 2 turns off 95

Maple Grove is really nice, 10 to watch 20 to race for Friday night grudge racing. Its not really that far, it would be around 40 miles or so. I'm at maple grove all the time, only raced twice this year though.

I drove past Maple Grove the other day on my way to the Denver/Lancaster area for work and it wasn't too far and a nice ride. I will head out there sometime for sure.

Its also a lot better for runs this year as well. They have been much more strict then they have been over the last couple years for leaks. The least amount of runs I have had this year was four, but that was the first day of grudge and it was absolutely packed.
