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
Pontiac Drag Days on Facebook to post and share GR-RRReat memories.
About Pontiac Drag
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.
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
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.
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
Wangers automotive warehouse has drawn hundreds of Pontiyakers of all ages.
