Gardner Race Track Consultants to Begin Immediate Work on the Onawa Racing and Events Complex
Gardner Race Track Consultants (GRTC) has reached an agreement with the Onawa Racing and Events Complex (OREC) Board of Directors to begin immediate representation and consulting services. OREC is in Onawa, IA just off of Interstate 29 and is under construction as an IHRA one-eighth mile drag strip facility with an events center.
GRTC has developed a comprehensive plan to pump adrenaline into the partially completed facility in full anticipation of a complete racing schedule of events in 2018. Work includes management of the next construction stages, including the installation of the concrete walls, the final finish technique for the race track surface, guidance in the selection of timing and P.A. systems and much more. Long time associate Dan Driscoll will lead on-site planning. In addition, Scott and Laura Gardner will assist in public relations, fund raising, event development, marketing, scheduling, planning, rules, regulations, sponsorships and more.
“The long-term plan includes the completion of the facility for quarter-mile drag racing which is a strong goal of the Board of Directors”, said Scott Gardner. “This can be accomplished sooner than later with additional funding through the shareholder program” he continued. Those interested in becoming a shareholder and advancing the goal of quarter-mile drag racing in western Iowa should visit the website at www.onawaracing.com. Shareholder common stock is available in $1000 increments per share and includes one vote for each purchased and a great opportunity to be a part of a tremendous opportunity.
The idea for a drag racing and event facility came from a team of Onawa, Iowa community leaders and business owners searching for alternative uses of Onawa’s under-used municipal airport. Racing enthusiasts were overcome by the idea, so much that many then joined the effort to develop the dream plan. With the support of the community and Onawa City Officials, the dream is close to becoming a reality. Plans for seasonal weekly drag races as well as private and public events on site throughout the year are OREC’s goals.
