“We have had a lot of success and we like what we see in drag racing”
Speedway Motorsports Inc. chairman Bruton Smith confirmed Thursday that he is considering adding a drag-racing facility to the motorsports complex at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
'We are looking at that very hard, yes sir,' Smith said.
Smith pointed to success in hosting events sanctioned by the National Hot Rod Association, whose PowerAde Series is the premiere drag racing series in the country, at drag strips that are part of SMI complexes at Bristol Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

There was a drag strip 5 to 8 miles away from where I lived in South Jersey. There were no homes within 1 mile of the drag strip. I could hear the noise from my home. On the scale of 1 to 10 the noise is close to 10. It will be like having a 747 take off from behind your home. The homes close to the drag strip should never of been built. Concord should look ahead to future development and high noise areas. The drag strip will be a big plus to Concords economy and a plus for North Carolina.
