The 2019 PRI show is done! What a great show and what a great
NEDRA showing. The booth was double the size of last year and
this allowed more people to enter without the cramped feeling.
Many people and groups walk by with genuine curiosity but do not
enter. Electric vehicles are still too new and different. The
huge number of people who did stop by in the three days were
there for a number of reasons:
many questions and discussions about electrification, they want
leadership and direction. Wiring, safety, parts, and
SFI and the racing community want answers for incident response
and safety. Many varied and conflicting opinions exist, no end
exists to the people offering opinions, they want tested, proven
signed up a number of members who were not aware that NEDRA
came to tell us about their experiences.
came to buy Jegs Junior Dragsters. Jegs had their own booth but
also allowed NEDRA to have a Junior on display. I do not know
the exact number of sales but I believe they sold in excess of
came to tell us about their different vehicles. Many drag
racers, late model dirt track car, pulling tractors, pulling
trucks, modified teslas, different boats from drag boats to
pleasure craft to pontoon, land speed cars, aircraft, and off
road vehicles. Many I cannot remember. We signed up members
who are not drag racers.
Magazines stopped by to work on stories.
stopped to shake hands and give words of encouragement to the
pioneers of electric drag racing. (That includes all of you!)
- We had
people who were selling items, I am buying a tesla drive as a
result of the show. We had people buying or wanting to buy.
We shared information on every EV company from Manzanita,
Netgain, EV West, EV Parts, EV Source, Thunderstruck, Lonestar,
to Gribben Scooter Repair. Many, many more.
spoke with a racing insurance company to start conversations
about offering our membership low cost group coverage. It is
too early to talk about what coverage or possibilities exist but
suffice to say we are working on it.
One thing I can say is the people I spoke with are happy they
found us and thought we made a solid presentation for NEDRA.
Some questions were asked if we were covering just the united
states or if NEDRA was global. (Canadian, French, Netherlands,
Germany) I also received comments that we should cover more
forms of electric vehicle racing. We need to address this as a
group. I am in favor of maintaining NEDRA and providing a
sister website to accommodate other forms of racing or possibly
an umbrella organization to help organize electric racing across
the globe. I know we have discussed a name change, we have
talked of expanding our coverage to other forms of racing. What
do you think? Ideas?

First event of
Palm Beach International Raceway Saturday February 2nd -
Street Car Drags
Dennis and all
others, yes thanks for request on Palm Beach races. Yes the
races were cancelled for Saturday and rescheduled for Sunday.
Well I found this out when I reached the gate on Saturday after my 1
1/2 hour drive there. Back I went on Sunday and I am really
glad I did. There were many Teslas there even with their own
generator truck with 2 Tesla super charges on board. I was
able to make 5 runs which is usually impossible at PBIR. I
went all day undefeated. I must have beaten over 1 million
dollars worth of supercars in my old 944. My first victory
was against a M5 bmw with turbo upgrades, then a Lamborgini, next
was my closest race against a pro charged late model Corvette.
He ran a 9.73 against my 9.70. My last 2 races were against a
Mercedes AMG BI Turbo which I blew away with a 9.50. Finally
Brooks was setting up a race for me against a new Demon.
Unfortunately the Demon was already in the trailer but that race is
to be done on a future date. Brooks said come on against his
9.90 McLaren. That was my last race of the day posting a 9.41
at 143 mph. Watch for this in a future Drag Times video. We
had both cars camered up. Brooks said I stole the show for the
entire Drag times day. This is a new MC/3 ED record. I am no
longer a high school teacher, I now teach at Sheridan Technical
College in Hollywood Florida. The school system allowed me to
transfer the 2 warp 11 motors which were purchased with school board
monies. Other than that the Black Pearl is mine. special
thanks to John Wayland who several years ago sponsored one of my
z2k's and Shawn Lawless who loaned me the other z2k after mine blew
a dc-dc converter and has to be repaired. The Lonestar Battery Pack
I built with made it all possible. I do have the 1500 hp battery
pack I built for Don Garlits setting in my shop. Someday I
will build one to equal that and BP will be an 8.90 street legal

Good job everybody, the 2019 NEDRA calendars
have sold out.
