Brakes Hit on Elk County Drag Races


ST. MARYS – A green light will not be given for drag races at an Elk County airport this year.

The committee in charge of the annual drag races at the St. Marys Area Municipal Airport recently announced that this summer’s races are canceled. A request submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration to temporarily close the airport’s runway was rejected.

According to information provided by the race committee, new national guidelines regarding non-aviation events on airport runways does not allow for the drag racing event.
