Unfortunately with the closing of Los Angeles County Raceway, so went Pontiac Drag Days long run as the country's premier Pontiac bracket series. We thank all of our racers who made Pontiac Drag Days an outstanding program—packed with fun and camaraderie. We still do get together from time-to-time for events at other venues and just for the fun of it at car shows.

Follow Pontiac Drag Days on Facebook to post and share GR-RRReat memories.

About Pontiac Drag Days

Pontiac Drag Days was launched in 1994 and was the country's longest running regularly scheduled Pontiac drag race series of its type. Whether a 9 second full boogie race machine or a 19 second grocery getter, Pontiac Drag Days offered a venue for all levels of the Pontiac enthusiast.

Be it a pristine, original owner Tri-Power GTO, a custom Street Rod or a fully modified Drag Car, Pontiac Drag Days is the race series for you! From classic GTOs and Firebirds to today's contemporary Trans Ams and GTPs, all Pontiacs are welcome at Pontiac Drag Days.

Founded by Pontiac enthusiasts in Southern California, Pontiac Drag Days operated an eight (8) race series at Los Angeles County Raceway (Southern California). Competitors were local hobbyists, many members of Southern California GTOAA and POCI Chapters. All were regularly joined by such legends of the Pontiac drag racing scene as Jim Wangers, Pete McCarthy, Jerry "The Judge" Young, and Ken Crocie. Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick even made a couple of appearances at Pontiac Drag Days.

Pontiac Drag Days was launched to offer local Pontiac hobbyists the opportunity to display their lust for excitement; Pontiac Excitement. Pontiac Drag Days provided a venue focused on fun and sharing in one another's excitement for our moniker. Beyond our regularly scheduled bracket series, our Tour de Wangers event grew into one of Southern California's largest Pontiac family fun events. This "show & shine" open house at Jim Wangers automotive warehouse has drawn hundreds of Pontiyakers of all ages.

Pontiac Enthusiast magazine columnists, Stan Rarden, in his Sep/Oct '99 column, compared the founding and success of Pontiac Drag Days to that of the NHRA and NASCAR. A comparison we are much honored to have received.

Pontiac Drag Days' sponsors included some of the best tuners, builders and suppliers on the Pontiac performance front; Pacific Performance Racing, Hubbe’s Performance Transmissions, M&H Electric Fabricators, Butler Performance Group, SD Performance, HK Motorsports, AllPontiac.com, Pypes Exhaust, 4myPontiac.com and Performance Years. We are very greatful for the support they provided. We could not have done it without the support of these sponsors.
