SUMMERSIDE(PE) – April 26, 2012 – The Atlanticade Motorcycle Festival is very pleased to announce that RACEWAY PARK will be hosting a major drag racing weekend to coincide with the 6th annual ATLANTICADE Motorcycle Festival being held from June 28th to July 2nd in Prince Edward Island.

RACEWAY PARK is the oldest continually operating track in Atlantic Canada and is located at Oyster Bed Bridge about 30 minutes from Summerside which is the host location for ATLANTICADE.

The actual drag racing will occur during the day on June 30th and July 1st and is  sanctioned  by the Atlantic Drag Racing Association (ADRA). RACEWAY PARK is the only drag strip in PEI and one of four tracks located in the Atlantic provinces that host ADRA events.

Registered participants to ATLANTICADE will also be given 50% off admission to take in the action during the weekend.

In addition to that those who feel the need for speed will have a chance to run their ride down the quarter-mile and actually get clocked and timed. RACEWAY PARK owner/operator Kevin Power says the track will be made available on Friday afternoon – June 29th from 1 pm until 5 pm for those bikers who want to experience the full throttle thrill.

“We are offering bikers the opportunity to feel the thrill of cracking the throttle and running down the quarter-mile without the pressure of competition and crowds” says Power. “It will be in a very controlled environment to ensure everyone's safety but we will clock your speed and time you run”.

A professional photographer will also be on hand to take photos so you can get a souvenir of your run down the track.  There is a $25 fee to take part but it also includes free admission to the track for the Saturday and Sunday racing.

Anyone interested must pre-register with the track by calling 902-628-5774 or via email at vintage.51@hotmail.com The website for RACEWAY PARK is www.racewaypark.biz

ATLANTICADE chairman Dale Hicks says this will provide something unique for those wanting to feel the thrill of leaning on the throttle. “Many bikers are always tinkering with their bikes to get more horsepower. So now they can actually see the results of those efforts by getting timed on the drag strip. Good news is it's all legal and sounds like a fun afternoon at the track”.

Hicks is expecting the largest turnout in the brief history of the festival as per-registration numbers at the end of March have surpassed those recorded in the previous five years at the end of June. “We now have participants from seven provinces and seven states so we want to make sure there are a variety of activities to keep everyone busy. The weekend of drag racing is just another example of that”.
