Question: Will there be another Suffolk Raceway Event?

1961-1991 are the years Suffolk Raceway has been around in Suffolk Virginia. While there is nothing anyone can do to bring back our love for drag racing. For the past 8 years we have and will celebrate who they were, how they lived and remember how their lives were spent in a sport that had no name other then "DRAG RACING". The passion perseverance and dedication that will never quit will be celebrated in the memories that will be captured in the 8 years of Suffolk Raceway Reunion- Little Guy nat.     Little Guy Nationals Hall of Fame

All of the Hall of Famers receiving the awards 40-50 years late, Legends of Drag Racing Memories.


Man are we going through some major withdrawals due to the fall in economics. Its has become a challenge to get sponsors and a event location. To hold a large event that has grown into in the past eight years.

So this year Jerry Moore and I will be going drag racing nostalgia style, with our 50 A/Altered Crosley. It is not just missing the rush of driving the car but missing the camaraderie with the other teams, whether they be friend or foe. It’s the entire sport that makes any day of these events an exciting and memorable part of our lives.


Hope to see all of you at each and every event. My Suggestion of events is


MDA Show Roanoke VA March 4 5 6

MIR Legends at Buds Creek MD June 24 25

Old Dominion Raceway Manassas VA August 21 2011

Ahoskie NC Founders Day Festival Legends of the Past Custom Car Show Sept 9 10 2011

Charlie Overfelt Elks Creek Raceway Roanoke VA Date Pending


My events are in no way affiliated with the city of Suffolk Tourism Department of the city of Suffolk or Northeast  Dragway Hertford NC


Any further information please contact Suffolk Raceway PO BOX 5567 Suffolk VA 23435

Thank You,  Johney Rousey
