The 2019 PRI show is done! What a great show and what a great NEDRA showing. The booth was double the size of last year and this allowed more people to enter without the cramped feeling. Many people and groups walk by with genuine curiosity but do not enter. Electric vehicles are still too new and different. The huge number of people who did stop by in the three days were there for a number of reasons:
One thing I can say is the people I spoke with are happy they found us and thought we made a solid presentation for NEDRA.
Some questions were asked if we were covering just the united states or if NEDRA was global. (Canadian, French, Netherlands, Germany) I also received comments that we should cover more forms of electric vehicle racing. We need to address this as a group. I am in favor of maintaining NEDRA and providing a sister website to accommodate other forms of racing or possibly an umbrella organization to help organize electric racing across the globe. I know we have discussed a name change, we have talked of expanding our coverage to other forms of racing. What do you think? Ideas?

Please join me in congratulating John and Lowell for their victory!

It's election time again at the National Electric Drag Racing Association. And, the democratic process that exists in the organizations bylaws are in effect.
First event of the year
Palm Beach International Raceway Saturday February 2nd - Street Car Drags
Dennis and all
others, yes thanks for request on Palm Beach races. Yes the
races were cancelled for Saturday and rescheduled for Sunday.
Well I found this out when I reached the gate on Saturday after my 1
1/2 hour drive there. Back I went on Sunday and I am really
glad I did. There were many Teslas there even with their own
generator truck with 2 Tesla super charges on board. I was
able to make 5 runs which is usually impossible at PBIR. I
went all day undefeated. I must have beaten over 1 million
dollars worth of supercars in my old 944. My first victory
was against a M5 bmw with turbo upgrades, then a Lamborgini, next
was my closest race against a pro charged late model Corvette.
He ran a 9.73 against my 9.70. My last 2 races were against a
Mercedes AMG BI Turbo which I blew away with a 9.50. Finally
Brooks was setting up a race for me against a new Demon.
Unfortunately the Demon was already in the trailer but that race is
to be done on a future date. Brooks said come on against his
9.90 McLaren. That was my last race of the day posting a 9.41
at 143 mph. Watch for this in a future Drag Times video. We
had both cars camered up. Brooks said I stole the show for the
entire Drag times day. This is a new MC/3 ED record. I am no
longer a high school teacher, I now teach at Sheridan Technical
College in Hollywood Florida. The school system allowed me to
transfer the 2 warp 11 motors which were purchased with school board
monies. Other than that the Black Pearl is mine. special
thanks to John Wayland who several years ago sponsored one of my
z2k's and Shawn Lawless who loaned me the other z2k after mine blew
a dc-dc converter and has to be repaired. The Lonestar Battery Pack
I built with made it all possible. I do have the 1500 hp battery
pack I built for Don Garlits setting in my shop. Someday I
will build one to equal that and BP will be an 8.90 street legal
