Havasu Street Drags Rescheduled to 2013

October 8, 2012

For Immediate Release

Havasu Street Drags Rescheduled

We must announce that circumstances have forced us to reschedule the Havasu Street Drags, that were scheduled for November 2-4, 2012. This is a result of early entries and activity far exceeding expectations. It was determined by organizers and officials that the safe capacity of the venue was going to be exceeded and the decision was made to reschedule the event to March 1, 2, 3, 2013. It is  a new experience to have to reschedule an event because it appears to be too big!

From the Havasu Street Drags conception it received immediate support and backing from all departments of Lake Havasu City plus sponsorships from the Lake Havasu Convention and Visitors Bureau, Big O Tires, CarQuest, Romer Beverage, The Quality Inn and Radio Central and we look to preserve their involvement.

To say that the acceptance from the racing community was unexpectedly large would be an understatement. Maad Action Media, our web host tells us that in less than 30 days the competitor entry form was downloaded more than 800 times! Since a great number of racers and vendors were making plans to travel from other states to participate we felt it necessary to make this difficult decision early to avoid unnecessary expense and inconvenience. We did not want to delay this notification. Please stay tuned to the official website or visit us on facebook for updates and announcements of exciting pre-events coming soon.

From the start of the planning valuable help was provided by our regional drag racing groups; Route 66 Wings & Wheels, Inc. and the Lake Havasu Drag Racing Association Inc. and we appreciate and value their assistance. We look forward to continuing to work with them on this exciting event.

For the many of you that have already sent your entry, no checks have been cashed or credit cards run and all entry forms will be destroyed. Keep your eyes on the web site within the next 30 days advance registration will become available at special pricing.

For this inaugural Havasu Street Drags March 1, 2, 3, 2013 we will be limiting the numbers of entries and preferred parking spaces on a first come first served basis.

The Main Street car party, “Cars ‘n Bars”, will take place as planned on Saturday, October 20 from 5 - 9 pm on McCulloch Blvd. The Havasu Street Drags will have a booth for all updated information, we hope to see many of you there. Thanks again for your tremendous support.
