Delays beyond our control and inclement winter/spring weather have made things
tough on getting the facility race ready,
and with government permit delays a decision has been made for the facility to
remain closed till completion. It is with great
regret that I need to inform everyone that all the races that were scheduled for
the drag strip for this year (2015) have been
cancelled. The PDRA, IHRA and other races will be moved to other locations –
please check with the sanctioning groups
for more information. This was not our intention nor are we happy to make this
decision. No one would rather have the facility
open more than we would. Please except our apologies for any inconvenience we
may have caused.
We look forward to seeing everyone in 2016.

MOTORSPORTS PARK PROVES IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZINGLY QUICK & FAST
2014 / BENSON, NC - The new under-development GALOT Motorsports Park
had their first ever race cars on the all new state-of-the-art
concrete surface. Todd Tutterow and Kevin Rivenbark made several hits
down the all new (soon to open in 2015) race track clocking some very
impressive numbers! Tutterow, on the very first pass ever clocked an
astonishing 3.779 only to bettered upon his second pass clocking the
quickest pass in PDRA Pro Boost trim with a 3.758 at over 194 mph!
Needless to say, "this track is simply going to be amazingly quick and
fast". The laps made by both drivers were in legal trim with their
14/71 Roots Blowers! Both the 3.77 and 3.75 posted on the new GALOT
track are much quicker than the current national record which is set
GALOT Motorsports Park will be soon opening for private team testing
this season with detailed information posted very soon. This testing
will not be open to the public. Public race fans will soon see all the
action come 2015!
