You've built a solid foundation and I hope things take off from here. We'll be in Norwalk in a few weeks. I hope you'll be there and look forward to discussing Project 1320 with you. Thanks for all you're doing to preserve the heritage of our sport. Your project will trace our roots to Santa Ana, Union Grove, US 30 Drag Strip, AHRA, NAAR, IHRA and even, for two years, NASCAR. Have fun!

“I want to congratulate Traci (Hrudka) and the rest of the Quarter Mile Entertainment team for launching this very important project. Too many of the drag racing and industry founders have passed away, leaving us with fewer of these pioneers to tell this very important story.
