What is JDRA?
The Jamestown Drag Racing Association was founded in 2000 by six middle aged drag racing fanatics from Jamestown that enjoyed and sometimes raced in Fargo, ND at the Interstate Dragways, as well as the Harvey Airport in Harvey, ND. The inaugural race was held in 2001 at the Jamestown Regional Airport. Next year, 2015, will be our 13th race.
Currently the races use the south end of runway 04 with the pit area around taxiway echo and the adjoining field. With some of the proceeds of our races we have been able to purchase our own public address system, runway cleanup equipment along with traction aid equipment.
The Association appreciates the support from Community Businesses, Airport Authority, Buffalo City Tourism Foundation and the Jamestown Fire Department. Interested individuals are welcome to attend and there is currently no membership fee at this time. A list of meeting dates for 2015 is now available here (PDF). All meetings are held in the Calvary Room at the All Vets Club unless otherwise noted.
