Mooresville Dragway switches from IHRA to NHRA

Mooresville Dragway has joined Division 2, the NHRA Southeast Division. The track is in the heart of stock car racing territory, but Mooresville is also home to an expanding number of drag racing teams including Ken Black racing.

 

The track was opened in the early 1960’s by Glen Leazer and run by his son, GW, and grandsons Doug and later Jody until the track temporarily closed in 2015. Donnie Gibbs Jr. purchased the facility in early 2017.

 

“Mooresville Dragway is excited to enter a new chapter in its long history by joining with NHRA,” said Tony Brown, track manager. “Track owner, Donnie Gibbs Jr. and I are ready for the 2018 season which includes hosting a National Open Series event as well as the SFG Promotions No Dragster Nationals, several Gibbs Race Cars 4.70 Outlaws and GWT Services Pro Tree Racers Association (PTRA) events. Our racers and fan base are in for a great variety of drag racing which, of course, includes a strong bracket program which is the core of our diverse schedule.”
