Attention WCDRA Racers:
Race Days Event Schedule

Members and Fans of Western Colorado Dragway,

The status of WCDRA, as of August 25, 2016, is very positive.

As management and board members have had to make decisions and changes along the way to make sure 2016 could end on a positive footing, we believe we are going in the right direction.

First of all, the asphalt payment, that we struggled with last year, has been saved in a separate bank account and we will make the full payment on time this year. Our loan at the bank has been paid in full and we owe nothing at the bank, at this time.
We are current with all of our creditors and our payroll and taxes. Currently, we have a solid bank balance in our operating account.

Looking forward, we have managed to secure a substantial number of lights, light poles, electrical boxes, transformers and most important, a like-new Wisper Watt 25 KVA generator. All of this has come from Shell Oil. This was made possible by one of our own members and racer, Jim Meyer. A big thank you goes out to Jim. Also, Mike Knowles has provided the transportation for most of this equipment at no cost to the track. So, a big thank you to Mike. Thank you, too, to Dale Umberger and Bud Preuss, on a hot July Saturday, for taking down lights and delivering them to the track.

We are currently starting to move forward with a lighting engineer to create the best layout of what we have to work with. The hope is to have most of this installed by Spring and the 2017 season. This will all hinge on how much money we can raise in donations to pay for labor and equipment.

So looking forward, we are in pretty good shape for the economic times we are living through. We continue to need all the support we can get on race day from our fans and racers. So, bring a friend to the track.

After scheduling a race for Labor Day weekend, it has been
decided to cancel this event so everyone can spend this long
