The International Hot Rod Association is excited to announce that the Estevan Drag Racing
Association, located in Estevan, Saskatchewan in Canada, will be joining the IHRA family of member
tracks beginning in 2014 when the track is scheduled to open for business.
Led by Greg Hoffart, the head of track development, along with president Dave Krahn, vice-president
Shaun Johnson and project secretary Jim Forrest, the Estevan Drag Racing Association officially
broke ground two months ago and is on track to open its doors to Canadian racers sometime in 2014.
The track will become the eighth Canadian track to join the IHRA member track family and the first
in the province of Saskatchewan.
"Estevan will be a great addition to our family of Canadian tracks. The community up there is 100
percent behind the project and the mayor is very excited. This project has a lot of backing from
the community and especially from the racers," said Phil Gingerich, IHRA Director of Track
Development. "With the size of the property and the current plans to expand, Estevan will one day
be a nice option to host a Summit Team Finals or Summit Pro-Am in the future giving Division 6 even
more of a presence in western Canada. Estevan is truly an exciting addition to our track family and
will only help strengthen that division and our Canadian expansion program."
Located on over 100 acres and in a motorsports-rich complex, with an oval track, go-kart track and
more located just next door, Estevan's dragstrip will be a welcome revenue generator for the
Estevan will be the eighth IHRA track located in Canada, with tracks in five Canadian provinces.
