The GDRA says Farewell

June 14th, 2015


Hello Racers and Sponsors,


The GDRA would like to thank everyone who has supported our association for the past six years, it’s been a fun ride and we have hosted some of the tightest side by side index racing over the years, however the time has come for the GDRA to say farewell and close its doors.


We have experienced a tremendous decline in both cars counts and racer support last season and this season we just haven’t had enough entries the first 3 races to field a race in any class. This was a hard decision for us to make, but it’s one that is best.


I would like to thank the following sponsors for supporting us to the end:


ARP  (Automotive Racing Products), Powermaster Starters & Alternators, VFN Fiberglass, Altronics, Glasstek, and AES (Automotive Engine Specialties), Biltmore Commercial Refrigeration, United Union of Roofers.


Without the support of these great companies the GDRA would have never been possible


I would also like to personally thank, my Partner in the GDRA, Kevin Deaton for all his efforts and traveling 700 miles round trip to each race and our Volunteer’s, Lori Deaton, Dani Deaton, Mike McClure, Fran Cardone & George Mantis for all your help over the years.


The GDRA will be sending back the few Race Entries we received this week to the entrants and will also be returning All Sponsorship funds to the 2015 Sponsors.


Should you have any questions or comments for the GDRA, please email us at: CashIsKing@GamblersDragRacing.com


We will keep the Facebook Page and Website up for awhile to make sure everyone has been informed.


Thank You Again for all your past support.

Race 1 on May 2nd @ Route 66

It is with much regret that we have to cancel Race 1 on May 2nd @ Route 66 due to the low number of entries we received.

Many Racers have expressed that they are just not ready or have family parties for graduations and such that day.

If your interested in entering Race 2 @ Byron Dragway…please have your entries in one week in advance.
