Area 53 Raceway exists to provide a fun, safe, friendly drag racing experience for racers and fans alike.
The long stretch of pavement that was the Forestburg Airport
was just begging to have people race down its runway. At least the club thought so. The airport was decommissioned by the
Municipality and a twenty five year lease was signed giving
control of the site to the Forestburg Power Sports Association.
The 1/8 mile division of the club began the fundraising and after a great deal of effort and some good luck we have the new track paved c/w concrete burn out boxes and concrete tack off pads.
The club has recently acquired all the barriers and related items to turn our raceway into a “true track”. Unlike airport racing ours is a dedicated raceway.
