Opening Day 2013


By Chad Cathell – Delmar, DE –

US 13 Dragway opened its gates for the 50th consecutive year this past Sunday, March 10th, 2013. With that they saw a successful day with hundreds of racers coming from Pennsylvania to Virginia and from the Bay to the Beach. Mother Nature blessed the Eastern Shore with great weather for some racing action, and racers and fans flocked to the race track accordingly. A gamblers race was put together during the day, and Defending Super Pro Champion Frank Lecates picked up the first win of the 2013 and 50th Anniversary Season.

Not only did racers and fans flock to the grounds of the US 13 Dragway, but also did local TV station WMDT 47 news and reporter Kody Leibowitz. A special thanks goes out to the crew from WMDT 47 for their exceptional coverage of opening day on the 50th Season. To view the coverage from the special day, please click here.
