I heard that the sand drags at the north end of Florence were going to open next weekend. I drove by today to see where it was and what it looked like. It looked like they still need to move some sand around and get things set up...

Cliff --

Whats the complete story on this track and where is it exactly??

Although it doesn't do me much good as I'm in Havasu for the Winter -- Where today it was in the low 90's ............ Nice and dry !!

Oh -- And I did go for a 25 mile Putt -- Around the Island then Hit the Hill Climbs north of town. Course then I had to go back to Town for Ice Cream .......

And i do this most every day ....... Now - Tell me the story of this track ............. It's gotta be in my back yard there ........

It is on the north end of town on hwy 101. (just north of Fred Meyers)
It is behind the sand park where kids rent sand boards.
They are using word of mouth advertising.

Supposedly they will have a light tree and timing station for the 300' strip.

When you mentioned north of town -- Thats where I peged it being. I'm just behind that area.

Hopefully this will be a permanent track -- Hope it lasts till I get back in the Spring !!

As time passes -- Post what you find out -- Safety equipment/track schedule/price, etc.

Thanks .........

Go to my website Fullerton Sand Sports - Distributor of Performance Tires & Wheels I have a flyer posted there for the event and the track. Go to their Facebook page for more pictures.

Great group of guys putting on the race. They do alot of promotion with kids and families.

Oregon Off Road Racing Association will be running lights and timing at Florence Sand Drag track same crew from Dunefest.

The facility will have free camping and easy parking for racers and spectators.

If you are able to attend to race or support, go to my website for details.

I don't know where LBR is, thought he would have posted this here, it is on another of the sites we belong to. There is a big sand berm that will act a a sound buffer.
Click on the picture.

So is anyone going to make it up there I live down in Coos Bay and would like to come up and meet some of you guys to go ride with.

I may try to bring my YFZ450 but I just had shoulder surgery so I may not be able to run it.
