BangShift.com has learned that Dragway 42 in Ohio (which we told you was for sale about a week ago) has indeed been sold. Normally we fret such things, but sources close to the deal have informed us that the buyer has full intentions of keeping the track open and running as a drag strip. We have been asked to keep names and specific details private until such time as the deal is finished (as early as tomorrow) but we wanted to let those racers and fans who call ol’ 42 home that the place has a future and there will be racing there for many years to come. During our live streaming broadcast of the California Hot Rod Reunion we’ll spill the beans on who bought it, why the bought it, and what their plans are, assuming that the spill those same beans to us. While Dragway 42 may not be some cutting edge super track, it is a facility that is an important place for the racers and hot rodders in its general area and losing any track is a blow to the health and well-being of hot rodding in general.
Long story short, we’re super excited to break this news and we’ll be even more excited when we get to unmask the new owners and share their motivation behind purchasing one of Ohio’s longest running and most historic tracks. You think four-wide is a new deal? It was going on at 42 DECADES ago!
STAY TUNED TO OUR LIVE BROADCAST OF THE CALIFORNIA HOT ROD REUNION THIS WEEKEND TO LEARN MORe ABOUT THE NEW OWNERS!
We’re totally enthused by this fact that this track ended up in the right hands and not some jerk face idiot that would raze the place!
