Platte Valley Custom Club Schedules Julesburg Dragway Reunion

The old members of the Platte Valley Custom Club and the Customettes invite all former members and their families to a day of gathering and remembering the former drag machines, sharing photos, club memorabilia, movies, etc.

Relive what was possible when members had a goal to build and run the "oldest drag strip" in the United States.

Hope to see you on September 11, 2010, at the Sedgwick County Fair Grounds, 1700 County Road 41 5/10, Julesburg, Colorado, at 10:00 a.m., where the first drag race was held in August 1953.

J.R. BBQ will be on site so the party can last as long as the food and or as long as we're still having fun!

If you know of any racers who raced at the Platte Valley strip between 1955 and 1975, please invite them.

Simply ask them to RSVP by email by September 1, 2010.
