NEDRA 2001 Woodburn Results

The fifth annual Electric Drag Races were held at the Woodburn Dragstrip (Woodburn, OR) on August 25, 2001.  The event, sponsored by Electric Louie Incorporated (www.electriclouie.com) featured 7 new world records!  The top three quickest EVs (and winners of cash prizes) were:

  • Electric Louie's go cart with a time of 12.102 seconds
  • Electric Louie's junior dragster "Watts Up" with a time of 12.439 seconds
  • Hendricks Racing's dragster "Viking 2000" with a time of 13.652 seconds

What's amazing about the second place winner is that the vehicle is 96V and official race times are recorded for the 1/8 mile for vehicles 6V or less.  Nevertheless, this 96V vehicle was still faster than many of the higher voltage racers.

During the drag races, we also had an autocross competition going on.  Both the "California Poppy" and Wilde EVolution's 1929 Ford Roadster competed.

The Rannberg memorial cup was awarded this year to Greg Pokorny for his work on the East Coast Drag Races.  His work represents a first for NEDRA: an event east of the Mississippi River and brings electric drag racing to a new audience.

The table below contains the best times for the vehicles which ran. Vehicles that are 96V and under have their times recorded for the 1/8 mile rather than the 1/4 mile. Also, times in red are new NEDRA World Records. Click on the owner and vehicle for a picture of the vehicle, if available.
