2 Day Memorial Day Weekend Race Kicks Off the 2015 Skyview Drags Race Season!

The Memorial Day Weekend marked the official start to the 2015 race season at Skyview Drags with a successful 2 day race in honor of SSG William R. Wilson III.  A service, lead by Super Pro driver Kathy Kiekel, was held following the Junior program in honor of Wilson.  Drivers, spectators and former service men lined up to honor Wilson's life.  The Junior Dragster program kicked off the event on Saturday May 23, 2015 with the first season win going to Hannah Garinger of Exeter Pa.  Garinger, making her debut this season in her all new 7.90 dragster, turned the win light on against 2014 Junior Dragster Champion, Morgan Burgess.  Burgess, dialed 7.90, went .660 on the tree, running dead on her dial, 7.901 at 81.05 mph.  But Garinger in a whole shot win went .639 on the tree running an 8.004 at 80.10 mph on her 7.99 dial.

Precision Crankworks steps up to offer a PERFECT PASS fund for the track's points racers.

Longtime supporters of Skyview Drags, Precision Crankworks has just announced that they will sponsor a Perfect Pass fund starting with the 2015 race season and continuing on until it has been claimed.

Racers must be registered Points Racers at the track. They must compete in a non-trophy class (Super Pro, Pro, Bike/Sled, Street Money or Junior Dragster) and the Perfect Pass must be won during a Points Race competition elimination round.

After each points race, the Perfect Pass fund will grow by $20 ($40 for Double Points races) and will continue to grow until it is claimed by one lucky racer.

Our special thanks to Don & Kathy Kiekel for offering such a great opportunity for our racers.




Skyview will open for its 11th season with a daytime Test & Tune on Saturday, 04/25. We will follow this with another daytime T&T on Saturday, 05/02. We then go to regular Friday night T&T schedule for the remainder of the racing season.

In addition to our Test & Tune schedule, we will also have 6 very special shows for the racers and fans on Friday night. Now these shows will be run IN ADDITION to the regular Friday night T&T that we always run.

We start off in May with IMPORT NIGHT on 05/22 where we invite racers and their street legal imports to come to the track for a fun-filled night of grudge racing and showcasing of the nastiest imports in the area.

On 06/19 we will have the first of our DIESEL NIGHT events where we invite racers to run their diesel trucks & cars down the track for some fun competition. We'll have our 2nd DIESEL NIGHT on 07/31.

On 07/17 we're looking for racers with the fastest street legal Motorcycles in the Southern Tier to come join us for BIKE NIGHT. Will it be a Harley, a Buell, a Ducati, or maybe a Hayabusa that reigns supreme in our street legal drag races?

Then on 08/14 we plan to settle the age old battle of FORD VS CHEVY as we ask our racers to bring their street legal Ford & Chevy cars & trucks into the staging lanes to see some great grudge matches. Fans should wear their Ford or Chevy shirts to let us know who you are rooting for as we line up the Fords in one lane & the Chevys in the other for match race after match race.

And finally, we finish our special shows with a MOPAR VS THE WORLD event where we invite our racers and their Mopars to take on the rest of the world and see who's got what it takes to get down the track and set the best mph for the night!

Please watch for flyers on each special show so that we can pack the stands with fans and bring in the street cars & bikes for some great fun. Please help us spread the word by sharing this post on YOUR Facebook page and sharing it again when we post our flyers.

Thank you for supporting your local drag strip and helping us to make our 11th season another great one.
