Since 2000.

The Jamestown Drag Racing Association was founded in 2000 by six middle aged drag racing fanatics from Jamestown that enjoyed and sometimes raced in Fargo, ND at the Interstate Dragways, as well as the Harvey Airport in Harvey, ND. The inaugural race was held in 2001 at the Jamestown Regional Airport.

The Association appreciates the support from Community Businesses, Airport Authority, Jamestown Tourism and the Jamestown Fire Department. Interested individuals are welcome to attend and there is currently no membership fee at this time.
