WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) is pleased to announce that Piedmont Dragway, Julian, N.C., has entered into a multi-year sanctioning agreement.
Sitting 20 minutes outside of Greensboro, N.C, in Julian, N.C., Piedmont Dragway has been in operation since 1957 and is home of epic 1/8-mile drag racing owned by Senecal family. Daily operations of the track are handled by general manager Amanda Senecal.
“We made the decision to come back to the IHRA as we felt the IHRA really cared about the smaller tracks and Sportsman racers,” Piedmont Dragway General Manager Amanda Senecal said. “We also wanted to get back to the nostalgia of IHRA Team Finals where it felt like we were a big family and could cheer our racers on who made the IHRA Team Finals. We are looking forward to a making new memories in the IHRA family.”
The mutli-purpose facility will host nearly 90 events in 2021 ranging from drag racing, tractor-pulling, demolition derbys, drifting and more.
“I’m very happy to have Piedmont Dragway return to the IHRA,” IHRA Division 2 & 9 Director Josh Peake said. “It’s always been a staple facility with all of the IHRA programs. I look forward to working with Amanda and Jessie for many more years to come.”
