  Estevan Drag Racing Association – April 2011, New Track Update

          The Estevan Drag Racing Association now holds a title for approximately 100 acres of property directly north of the Estevan Motor Speedway. This will be the Home for a Drag Race facility in southern Saskatchewan.  In order to move forward with this project, the Association has obtained the services of Mr. Ron Colson, of the firm Track Planning Associates, to assist in the planning and development of a New Drag Racing facility on this property.

 Mr. Colson brings a wide range of experience including, track construction, knowledge of track requirements, track design, program planning, as well as a good working relationship with drag race sanctioning bodies with in North America. In earlier years, Ron drag raced the “Chi Town Hustler” funny  car with Austin Coil as crew chief. He also raced Roland Leong's “Hawaiian” funny car in the 1970’s. This may be familiar to some of you, whom may have been following drag Racing in those earlier years.

          Mr. Colson visited Estevan on April 24 -28, 2011. He was in Estevan on a information gathering visit. During this time, Ron Colson, Dave Krahn (Track Development Coordinator) and Frosty Forrest (Association President) were able to visit the property and to look over the proposed track layout. This group also held meetings with various suppliers, contractors, soil experts and community organizations within the community. This was done in an effort to determine if products and expertise needed are available within the area. They also looked at the demographics involved in making a track successful within the community and surrounding area.

We are very happy to report that through Ron’s 3 day visit, that there is firm community support for this endeavour. All contacts were offering support in whatever way they can including products, equipment and expertise. Our preliminary analysis of the site indicates a good base that will work well and resist the problems associated with the deep frost here within Saskatchewan. Further to this, there will be further testing to reveal any hidden problem areas within the site. Our next step will be to prepare a business plan to present to potential sponsors and investors.

Based on all our efforts, we are confident that we can proceed with our plans to construct a new drag strip in southeast Saskatchewan.

We will keep you informed as new developments progress.

Thank you             

Jim (Frosty) Forrest – EDRA President

   EDRA 2011  - June 19 - "Season Opener"   "Pure Energy Race Week

Hi Everyone,


     Due to the continuing rains Estevan Drag Racing Association regrets to announce that we are forced to cancel our race on June 19.

All areas of the airport that are not paved are either under water or totally saturated leaving no area for spectator parking and

making it impossible for us to even get to our equipment. We sincerely regret having to cancel and hope everyone can come to our

 Dennis Neelin Memorial race on July 24 to help us celebrate Dennis' life and honor his devotion to the sport.

    Please pass this along to anyone who may not get the information and if you come across any of our posters please write

cancelled across the June 19 race.  If you have any questions please call me @ 306 634 5447 or 306 421 7772.

Thanks and we hope to see everyone in July 24, 2011 Race.
