Agreement Reached To Sell Cordova Dragstrip

CORDOVA, Ill. – An agreement has been reached between the International Race Group and Dan and Shelly Crownhart’s 1320 Promotions to acquire Cordova Int’l Raceway.

The deal is expected to close before the end of the year.

The Crownhart family has been involved in drag racing for generations on many levels.  Dan Crownhart, a native of Sterling, Ill., has experience on the track, racing both alcohol and jet funny cars, and will be taking over the day to day management of the race facility.

“Cordova has always been a special place for racers and fans. We all have fond memories of our time at the track. I am confident we can celebrate the long history of Cordova and create a bright future simultaneously,” Dan Crownhart said.

“In the spirit of past major events of the UDRA and IHRA being held in June, we are excited to announce that Funny Car Chaos will be a part of the return of the Summer Nationals contested June 17-18. We are expecting more than 30 supercharged nitro and alcohol funny cars to compete in a no-holds barred format that will surely become a premier annual event here at Cordova,” Dan Crownhart added.

The Crownharts are finalizing plans for facility upgrades, new events and the sportsman racing series, among other items. There will also be a meet and greet for racers and fans planned for early 2022.
