Our Track

 

Our facilities are located East of Fort Saint John in Northeastern British Columbia, minutes from down town, near the local airport. The track started in 1998 and was originally to run 1/8 mile. We are a Volunteer based non-profit organization with approx. $500,000 in donated money and labor. The track is leased from the North Peace Airport Services and the Control Tower was donated from BC Highways ( it was the old weight scales building at mile 54)
Thanks to all the executives that do so much each week to make this all possible. Thanks to all the Volunteers!

Track length – 1/4 mile 1320 ft. Shut down length – 2073 feet.
Our track record holder is Dale Pederson- 6.494 sec @ 226.43 mph June 15,2014
