Drag Racing in the Hudson Valley with NEQ

October 5 - October 6

Come join us for a fun day at the drag races! All cars and drivers are welcome, even minivans and SUV’s! This is a Social event, so no pressure to drive, but attendees are welcome to sign up with the track directly if you want to race. Don’t want to drive? Spectate and meet your fellow club members!

This is the real drag racing deal on an official NHRA dragway. We’ll be launched by Christmas tree lights and get a time slip for each run giving your splits and 1/4mi time and speed.

Drivers in cars quicker than 14 sec will need to wear a helmet, full face if 10 sec or faster.

Following a full day of racing at the track, we’ll retire to a local restaurant for dinner.

Sunday morning we are invited to a trap shooting event in Kinderhook with the Old Chatham Hunt Club. No experience or equipment is required. Novices are welcome and will receive personalized instruction.

Sunday afternoon/evening we are invited to roam the local countryside as a guest at a Hunt Club beagling event, followed by a tea (supper) at local home.

Sign up for all or some of the activities.

The cost of the drag racing is $35 per car & driver, $10 for crew/spectators, payable directly to the dragway at the event.

The track grill will be open during the event for lunch. Please bring cash, or a bag lunch of your own.
