On Monday, March 12th, Pacific Raceways posted the following on their Facebook page:
“Let’s get ready for drag racing! The track was scraped last week and washed down with Tide on Sunday. The first drag test & tune for the season is Sunday [March 18th]. Hope to see everyone out.”
As anyone living here can tell you, the weather here has been miserable with temperatures 10-degrees below normal, plenty of rain with hail and snow flurries.
We want to thank the crew at PR for attempting to prep the track under miserable conditions, and for the track keeping us all informed. Communications from Pacific Raceways are improving and we appreciate it!

March 18th Test & Tune Cancelled:
In from John Ramsey at Pacific Raceways on March 16th –
“Okay everyone, we need a couple more days to get the drag strip prepped before we can safely run cars down the track…and the weather isn’t cooperating. The track was scraped a week ago and it was washed with Tide earlier in the week, but we need an additional two days without rain or snow to go back through and finish the process, and it’s not going to happen with the latest forecast. The fore…cast for this weekend is more like a December weekend, than March. The weekend high is 42 degrees and the overnight low is 29 with snow and rain predicted. This week was spent getting the electronics, computer system, sensors, and scoreboards up and running. We have a crew ready to roll at the first sign of good weather and we will keep you updated on our progress. There will be no test and tune this Sunday, and we will point to next Sunday March 25 for the first test and tune of the season. – John Ramsey”
