Coastal Plains Dragway has formed a new partnership with MyRacePass, the facility announced. The digital app will allow racers and race fans to view and download time slips, qualifying information, race results, schedules and real-time points tracking. The app will also feature “Fantasy Drag Racing” for fans, the company said.
“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Charles and the staff at Coastal Plains Dragway to launch our MyRacePass Race Management system for the Drag Racing world,” explains Josh Holt, co-founder/co-owner of MyRacePass. “We are bringing what we’ve created for over 600 promoters and millions of fans in the circle track racing industry to drag racing, and this is only the start. We’re excited to share the MyRacePass race day experience to drag race fans and drivers that follow the speedway.”
The new MyRacePass Coastal Plains Dragway feature will undergo testing when the new track timing system is installed just after the Valentine’s Day Classic. CPD will become the first dragstrip in the country to host live drag racing on MyRacePass when it officially debuts March 12-13, the company said.
“We are beyond excited to partner with MyRacePass,” said CPD Manager Charles Myers. “Like Whelen, they have deep NASCAR roots and we are excited to bring some of the same technology that you see at local short tracks throughout the county to drag racing. We really hope that racers and race fans will enjoy all of the features as we continue to strive for a better experience.”
Racers and race fans can download the MyRacePass app on Google Play and the Apple Store. Free to download, fans can view brackets, results, points and track information or choose premium levels to unlock additional features.
