MILLION DOLLAR DRAG RACE RELOCATES TO WORLD WIDE TECHNOLOGY RACEWAY IN 2023
The 28th Annual Million Dollar Drag Race will be contested at World Wide Technology Raceway on September 12-16, 2023.
St. LOUIS: Next season there will be a million exciting reasons to visit the Midwest, as World Wide Technology Raceway becomes the new venue for the 28th Annual Mickey Thompson Million Dollar Drag Race September 12-16, 2023.
Folk Promotions combed through countless racetracks in search of a hosting facility that would not only continue their long-running tradition but elevate the racer experience to the highest standards. Co-promoter, Jennifer Folk explains, “It wasn’t an easy decision to leave the south, and we are extremely thankful for all the racers, sponsors, staff, and local support who have added to the Million’s success, but we are very excited about our future in St. Louis.”
Folk continues, “This decision wasn’t made lightly, but World Wide Technology Raceway certainly checked all the boxes for us. It’s a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility with all-asphalt parking, a fiber optic Compulink timing system, and hard-working staff. Not to mention the average temperatures for the event dates show 80-degree highs and lows of around 60 degrees, which makes perfect weather for racing.”
“One of our goals at World Wide Technology Raceway is to always host major events that appeal to a wide range of racing interests,’ said Chris Blair, WWTR Executive Vice President and General Manager. “As the only track on the planet to host NASCAR, INDYCAR, NHRA and Formula Drift, as well as the largest NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event of the season, we wanted to host a major bracket racing event to be a showcase on our 2023 schedule. When it comes to promotional partners and big money bracket races, there’s only one MILLION.
“The Folk family have done a tremendous job of not only growing this incredible event but also carrying on the legacy that was established by my friend George Howard in 1996. We are honored that they have selected WWT Raceway and the St. Louis region for the next chapter of this amazing story. “
