The raceway and Wednesday Night Drags crew would also like to remember long-time racer and friend, "Mr. Pontiac" Pete Aljian. Pete passed away on May 22, following complications after a stroke. He was 71.
We’ll all remember the great pride Pete took in his all-steel, mid-nine-second, blue 1955 Pontiac, which he built and drove, and was later driven by Bob Van Poppering and John Tobias. As a tribute to Pete, his fellow ICRA (Island Cities Racing Assoc.) club members will be racing this weekend in his honor. Please keep Pete and his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
