GALOT Motorsports Park
Attention Racers and Racers Fans
Delays beyond our control and inclement winter/spring weather have made things tough on getting the facility race ready, and with government permit delays a decision has been made for the facility to remain closed till completion. It is with great regret that I need to inform everyone that all the races that were scheduled for the drag strip for this year (2015) have been cancelled. The PDRA, IHRA and other races will be moved to other locations – please check with the sanctioning groups for more information. This was not our intention nor are we happy to make this decision. No one would rather have the facility open more than we would. Please except our apologies for any inconvenience we may have caused. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2016. Satch Gragg Gen. Mgr.
Formally known as the LSX Shootout, this exciting event will now take place at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio on August 27-30, 2015
Santa Ana, CA – The NMCA Flowmaster Muscle Car Nationals Series is pleased to announce the new date and location for the rescheduled 9th Annual Chevrolet Performance Shootout (formerly the LSX Shootout). This exciting event will now take place at the NMCA World Street Finals at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio during the weekend of August 27-30, 2015. Originally scheduled for the 2015 NMCA event in Indianapolis, the shootout was cancelled and rescheduled due to Tropical Storm Bill. The 9th Annual Chevrolet Performance Shootout is the largest LS and modern LT drag race of the year!
With the advent of GM’s all-new LT engine platform, the LSX Shootout was rebranded the “Chevrolet Performance Shootout,” which continues to be the largest all LS and modern LT drag race event of the year. Summit Motorsports Park, fondly referred to as America’s Racetrack, is one of the finest facilities in the country with the best hookin’ quarter-mile that’ssure to set records courtesy of TJ “El Prepe” Bailey and Kurt “Stupid Sticky” Johnson!

PITTSBORO, NC – PDRA Dragstock XII, originally on schedule to be run at GALOT Motorsports Park, will now return to Rockingham Dragway, September 11-13. GALOT Motorsports Park’s expected completion date for the track overhaul has been pushed back to 2016, and as a result the track was forced to cancel all races on schedule for this year. PDRA Race Director, Bob Harris, reached out to Rockingham Dragway, the home of Dragstock in recent years, quickly securing the facility for the PDRA’s marquee event.
“We are disappointed that we will not run at GALOT this year,” told Harris, “but we understand that they are creating a world class facility and want it to be right before opening. We appreciate GALOT giving us enough notice to find a different facility in time and also appreciate Steve Earwood for partnering with the PDRA for a second event this season. We enjoy running at Rockingham and love the history that the Dragstock event has had at that track. We look forward to a great event there.”
