It’s time to renew your Reserved Pit Parking spot for the 2017 racing season. All spots will be $125 this year. You have until February 28, 2017 to renew your current spot.

If you choose not to renew please advise us at your earliest convenience as we have people waiting for spots to become available.

Please call the track office at 603.679.8001 during normal business hours or email deb@nedragway.com for payment.

Just a reminder of what it takes to occupy a reserved pit spot.

  1. You must be a paid and registered NED Points Program member.
  2. If you have more, or require more, than one spot you must have that number of cars in a points program. (Simply put one car = one spot)
  3. You must complete a parking waiver form and obtain a Parking Sticker.
  4. Once you have a spot and choose not to renew the following season your spot can only be offered to the next person on the waiting list. (You do not own the spot, you are allowed the privilege of the use of that spot for the racing season)
  5. A violation of any NED Rules or procedures may result in the loss of use of your spot for the remainder of the season, without refund.
  6. If you swap spots with another racer who has a reserved spot you must notify NED so that records can be updated.

Starting in 2017 the SFI will require manufacturers to change the way they label driver restraints, window nets and roll cage nets.  The new design calls for the removal of the punched out month/year of manufacture and replace it with a single expiration date pre-printed on the label.  SFI believes the new system will help tech inspectors determine if the equipment is expired, as well as help the driver know when it’s time for replacement.

The new labels will enter the field after January 1, 2017.  Equipment labeled under the old system are still valid for use until the expiration date.  SFI is also allowing manufacturers to use up their inventory of labels previously affixed until the old system until they are exhausted.  Equipment affected by this change include Driver Restraints (SFI Spec 16.1, 16.2, 16.5 and 16.6); Window Nets SFI Spec 27.1 and Roll Cage Nets SFI Spec 37.1.  These new labels will come out in six-month segments.

Justin Picillo of Picillo Racing Wins
2015 NHRA Division 1
Stock Eliminator Championship

 


Justin Picillo, 32, of Warwick, Rhode Island has become the 2015 NHRA Division 1 Stock Eliminator Champion driving a 1972 Chevelle 350 small block.
Justin and his team worked very hard throughout the 2015 season traveling from New Hampshire to Reynolds, Georgia and a few tracks in-between.
The race season started with the intention of running only a few races. The team had taken 2013 and 2014 off, Justin and his wife Liz had gotten married and purchased a home. Those plans quickly changed when Justin won the first 2 races of the 2015 season.
