This is our 16th annual 1/8th mile drag race held at the Altona Municipal Airport. For two days, we take over this venue, with a maximum field of 60 paid entries per day @ $75 each. $25 of that fee goes back in the form of prize money. Several thousand people attend this race, and we have not raised our admission in 16 years to keep it affordable for families. We also keep our food and beverage prices affordable as we cater to families having fun. The Bunker from Winkler will be operating the food concession again this year. The Home Fries are the BEST!
This is a professionally run race with racers receiving time slips after each run. Instant results are displayed on our Race America Reader Boards. Dave Millar of Millar Machine Company in Winkler is our Platinum Sponsor, lane Sponsors again for this year are: Derksen Trucking (Altona), and Lode King (Winkler).
Back by popular demand is the Members Challenge Race. This event features paid membership Legends car club members racing their street cars or sleds, competing for bragging rights! These 16 entries are at NC, no prize money, and the limit is 8 per day. Members are allowed to enter for one day only. To register complete the form on our website and state Members Challenge. www.legendscarclub.ca/charitydrags. Anyone can win, as the finals are based on Bracket racing results, not actual times or speeds. Reading a good light can give you a win.
Entry forms are on line, but must be filled in manually. You can then scan them and send them directly to us at: email@example.com , or mail to Legends Car Club, Box 2005, Altona, MB R0G0B0. Payment by cheque, money order, Mastercard, or Visa, must accompany the entry.
This year we are again giving 50% of our profits to 2 regional causes; Genesis house in Winkler. This is a shelter for women and children in distress, serving an area from Roseau River to Cartwright MB, and the South Central Cancer Resource out of Morden, who serve cancer patients in the Pembina Valley, providing transportation for cancer treatments, wigs, and support. We also support them with our Drive for Cancer coming up on May 26th. Anyone can join us for the day. It’s a Poker Derby on wheels, followed by a great BBQ at West Park Motors.
We appreciate your support in promoting a real fun filled weekend with a great cause. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or text either Don Elias, firstname.lastname@example.org, 204 324-7569, or Irv Loewen, email@example.com, 204 324-7145.
