Central Alberta Raceways in Rimbey has become a National Hot Rod Association member track.
Member tracks can offer NHRA-sanctioned drag racing events, a big step forward for the facility just northeast of town.
“Central Alberta Raceways is comprised of a dedicated group of car enthusiasts who have worked extremely hard with Rimbey Kinsmen and the town of Rimbey,” said Travis Jaffray of Central Alberta Raceways in a release.
“With the help of the community, many volunteers, and corporate and private donations, 2013 will mark the first season where all four tracks will be operational.”
The facility has a quarter-mile dragstrip, three-eights-mile dirt oval, mud bog and motocross track.
Development of the 80-acre multipurpose motorsports facility began in 2003.
