  • New Contest! Starting Line Experience At The NHRA Division Finals

    Wilson's NAPA Auto Parts Starting Line ExperienceDo you want a chance to stand at the starting line while two of the top Alcohol Funny Cars compete for their last chance to win the Division 6 Title? This is a unique experience that only the track officials and teams get to witness. If you win this promotion, you will get a complimentary pair of race tickets for the NHRA Northwest Division Finals at the Woodburn Dragstrip on Sunday – September 9th, you will get to bring a guest down to the starting line (must both be 18 or older), and of course you’ll get bragging rights that you stood at the starting line between two of the top Alcohol Funny Cars during eliminations of the 2012 NHRA Northwest Division Finals.

    The NHRA Northwest Division Finals are coming to the Woodburn Dragstrip September 7th, 8th and 9th. It will be an exciting weekend to watch these teams compete head-to-head for the finals. This is one of the last chances for these race teams to qualify for the NHRA National Finals held in Pomona, California. If you like cars that can reach top speeds of 250+ MPH, you will not want to miss this race.

    Never been to a drag race before? This is a great race to get your first taste of top-level drag racing. Last time these Division NHRA racers came to Woodburn, they set track records for both times and speed! We saw dragsters as fast as 5.338 seconds in a quarter mile and speeds that reached up to 266.42 MPH. Have you ever had the hair stand up on your arms because a car passed by? It is a feeling that drag racing fans get to experience every time these top-level competitors come to town.

    Woodburn Dragstrip has been recognized as a “NHRA Track of the Year” numerous times for the Northwest. This year they are hosting two of the six races for Northwest Division 6. It is a family-operated track that aims to please all ages: they have a playground for the younger kids, bleacher seating on both sides, RV parking right next to the dragstrip (spaces are limited), special interest parking for those who want to bring their classics, and a variety of food and beverages from a handful of vendors.
