Their website does not have their schedule listed for the 2022 season. However, the Facebook post said that the track will be opening soon.
At this time, we do not know when the track is going to open its doors once again.
Sloan and Farnsworth will have to hire a staff before the drag strip will be able to open. Depending on the hiring process, the drag strip could potentially be back in operation within a month or two with the right people being hired.
