This web page is a work in progress, set up for fun and information and will be continuously updated as I find stuff to add. This site is dedicated to Alberta Drag Racing History to recognize as many as possible of the old racers, cars and facilities for a trip down memory lane for the old guys and gals, and info for the new generation of racers.
Hope to get some input from old racers and fans or their kids that may remember or have some of the old pictures and can provide info. If you have any pictures or stories you would like me to add please send. For regular mail, just email me and I will provide a mailing address.
While there is duplication of images found on various sites scattered all over the internet, this site provides a great one stop shop with links to those sites while they exist. But, by maintaining this site with its own image directory, it is not dependent on other web sites. Often web sites close and then the images are gone forever. On this site, the images will remain.
There is no intent to violate copyright of images downloaded from other sites or to profit from the posting of these images. If you have any concerns please let me know.
