The bad news? As unknown entity with unknown intentions has reportedly approached Epping, New Hampshire’s New England Dragway (NED) with an offer to acquire the land…lock, stock, and barrel, it seems. The good news? The facility is not actively for sale (so there is no intent or desire to sell) and it will be much harder to transfer ownership than almost any other drag racing venue in the country.
Why is that, you ask? Well, unlike the vast majority of drag racing facilities, both big and small, that are family-owned or jointly owned by a small group of partners, the New England Dragway is a private corporation with shareholders, and while the exact number of outstanding shares is not known, it’s thought to be in the hundreds, if not more.
