South Mountain Raceway NHRA 1/8 mile drag strip

The 1/8-mile drag strip opened in 1962 on a 35-acre site along Petersburg Road. The track got its start when local youth went to H. Robert Davis, a prominent local doctor and community leader, asking for his help in building a place to race to keep them off the streets. In 1958, the Quarter Aces Car Club came up with the cash for a down payment on the land that would become the drag strip. It took another four years for the construction to be complete, allowing racers to test their cars against each other for the price of 75 cents, according to Mr. Larry Basich one of the original young members who also lives next to the Track.
