Default Lapeer, Michigan Dragway

Evidently Lapeer Dragway was sold and the guy who bought it is fixing it up. Take a look.

I'm originally from Toledo and hung out at Milan and Detroit Dragway in the 60s. Good to see more racing in Michigan. Name sounds French, is this on the Upper Peninsula?

God Bless him. It's an interesting story when you find out where the guy got his money to buy and fix the place up. Some folks have commented about the place being narrow. But looks like he's done a good job with it.

I Love that someone is putting money into that track. Is it just me or does it look a bit narrow?

Do you think they will ever have a "race a cop "day at the track?

Yes. Don’t quote me but I think they run a limited schedule. 1/8 mile too if I remember right.
