What's New

SCHEDULE UPDATE- With the province now releasing their re-opening plan, it appears that in Phase 4, mid July we will have workable gathering limits. Therefore, we will move our season opener to July 23-25 weekend. As we get deeper into June we'll communicate the race format.
Here is the amended schedule:
July 23-25 Season opener, format TBD
August 6-8 Including ACSSA double, Pro Tree, ADRA
August 27-29 Including Bracket Bash, TS/TD
September 24-26 Including ACSSA double, ADRA
UPDATE: Greenfield Dragway Opener Moved to July 2-4 Weekend
With the Provincial lockdown in place until the end of May here in Nova Scotia, the season opener at Greenfield will be pushed ahead to the scheduled July 2-4 weekend; the weekend format will be determined closer to event.
Hopefully by early days of June we will have a better understanding of gathering limits and travel restriction that will dictate the look of the first race. We will communicate the plan at that point in time.
We are excited to get going but must wait just a little bit longer. So, take advantage of the extra preparation time and be ready to roll when the time comes.
Stay safe and we’ll see you all soon!

The Annual General Meeting of the NSDRA will be held Thursday April 8th at The Bridgewater Best Western hotel at 7 pm. Membership dues can be paid before meeting. Masks will be required, as well as following other public health guidelines. Hope to see you there!

NSDRA will host an information session for Greenfield Dragway on Wednesday November 11th at 7pm at the Best Western Bridgewater, 527 Highway 10 at exit 12. Please wear your mask until you are seated in the meeting room. As this is a general information session both members and non-members are welcome to attend.
Purpose of the meeting is to provide an update for the 2021 season and to give some general direction. The meeting will allow open discussion and we will have the floor open for questions, ideas and suggestions.
We are looking forward to seeing to there!
Directors of NSDRA

Statement from the Nova Scotia Drag Racers Association

After thoughtful consideration NSDRA has determined that it will not be opening Greenfield Dragway this season. Many factors go into this decision but there are two major concerns leading to this conclusion.

• Greenfield Dragway relies heavily on its volunteers to execute an event. We have many that are still not comfortable with larger gathering and personal contact. The directors completely understand and would never put our volunteers in that situation.

• The financial risk. As an association we have limited funds. We cannot risk the future well-being of our track by forcing a few mediocre events in 2020. Many competition vehicles have been parked for the season so a small number of entries is very possible. Couple this with a “No Spectator” model and the opportunity for revenue is very limited.

The directors of NSDRA are racers also, so we want to be on-track competing, and in the pits socializing with our racing friends and family as much as anyone. This is a tough decision to make but it is a decision made with rational thought and not from emotion.

We sincerely wish all racers, sponsors, volunteers, supporters and their respective families good health and safety. Please enjoy a summer with your family and friends and maybe even cross a few things off the honey-do list. We look forward to strong rebound for local drag racing in 2021!

Take care,
The Directors of NSDRA

16th Annual Greenfield Dragway Bracket Bash…Big Dollar Bracket Event Includes Top Sportsman/Top Dragster, Stock/Superstock Series & Junior Dragster Shootout!

The 16th Annual SUPER SATURDAY BRACKET BASH goes August 24th at Greenfield Dragway. This annual big dollar event continues to draw each year with 162 entries in 2018. Almost $14,000 was paid out last year with pay-outs extending back to the Round of 16! We saw Bill Sheppard take home $3600 for the win in No Box and Josh Goodwin pocket $3200 for his Box victory!

Here are the Super Saturday specifics and payout structure examples (keeping in mind the # of entries and final sponsorship amounts may change the purse for the winner and runner-up. Semi, quarter and round of 16 payouts are set amounts).

Event Hi-Lights:
- Entry fee is $40
- Box and No Box (Delay box/device must be removed from vehicle, this includes adj buttons)
- Open to all race vehicles, including motorcycle and snowmobile
- First round losers can enter the buy-back round for $20
- Buy-back round winners will then merge into Round 2 of the eliminator
- Random pairing until quarterfinals then laddered based-on previous round reaction time
- Bye-runs during random pairing determined by best RT in previous round.
- A competitor can only receive one bye-run during random pairing.
- Double entry permitted (Box and No Box)

Pay-out Structure:
In both classes’ semi-final losers win $400, quarter-final losers get $200 and round of 16 losers earn $100 each. These are set amounts regardless of car count. The remaining funds are split with 70% to the winner and 30% to the runner-up in each class. Also, the sponsorship money is split 60/40 between Box and No Box.

Here are two examples based on the traditional # of entries for this race:

Box Class with 60 entries:
60 entries x $40= $2400
Estimated 20 buy-backs x $20= $400
Sponsor funds (60% of $6000) = $3600
Total purse in Box = $6400

*Box winner: $2800
* Runner-up: $1200 Semi-final finish: $400 Quarter-final finish: $200 Round of 16 (or less) finish: $100 Will vary based on # of entries

No Box Class with 100 entries:
90 entries x $40= $3600
Estimated 35 buy-backs x $20= $700
Sponsor funds (40% of $6000) = $2400
Total purse in No Box = $6700
*No Box winner: $3010
*Runner-up: $1290 Semi-final losers: $400 Quarter-final losers: $200 Round of 16 (or less) losers: $100 *Will vary based on # of entries
