Camping:

To answer a frequent question, Raceway Park of the Midlands still has too much water to allow for camping, but Onawa Dragway has offered to open their facility for camping Friday-Sunday nights if you need a place to setup - it’s just over 1 hour from the car show on Saturday.

 

Charity Fundraiser:

All ICC merchandise proceeds are still going to John Fitch and his family to help with massive flood damages to his personal property, his primary business and relief for the huge investments he has poured into Raceway Park of the Midlands / I29 Dragway - He is still 100% committed to reviving the track for a big year in 2020 and we are proud to support him in any way we can! You can find ICC gear next to the 1320Video booth both days.

 

Onawa Dragway racer pits - We spent several hours at Onawa working through needs to make the experience as great as it can be during race day - Onawa Dragway is working hard to improve their racer pits to accommodate the large number of racers we expect. As you arrive you will see barriers & signs on the left side of the pits to park behind so we can maintain two lanes of traffic throughout the racer pits and keep congestion to a minimum. Please help us police this if you see fellow racers parking in the driving lanes.

 

Roll Racers:

Unfortunately we are only able to drag race at our new race venue, you will receive information on refunds in your email today. We look forward to holding our full race schedule in 2020 and hope to see you there!

 

No Prep Race:

Our no prep race is canceled for 2019, we look forward to holding it in 2020 including our new classes that were planned for this year!

 

Raceway Park of the Midlands / I29 Dragway:

As most of you know the track has been flooded 3 times this year and is recovering from the most recent - we held out as long as we could to see if flood waters would recede so we could maintain our entire event schedule, but it just wasn’t possible this year - big thank you to Doug and the track staff for their help with the Venue moves, they will be at both days helping us run the show and expect to have the track back up and running for an awesome 2020 race season!

 

Refunds:

Refunds can be requested up to Tuesday, October 15th 2019 - please email sales@1320video.com for instructions on mailing back your admission for a full refund. Rainout refunds will be issued only in the case that there is a full rainout of both Saturday & Sunday.
