Drag Race Cape Breton

300 Wash Plant Road, Grand Lake Road NS


Cape Breton Dragway regularly attracts drag racing enthusiast from across Canada and the eastern United States. This facility is has really earned its position as one of the premier tracks in the Maritimes.

Welcome to Cape Breton Dragway. Our track is the result of a dream of several local drag-racing enthusiasts that banded together and formed an association and after thirty plus years of fundraising they finally managed to purchase and construct their current drag strip just 7 minutes from downtown Sydney. This racer built race-track regularly offers five classes of drag racing, including the ever popular Sportsman Class which allows patrons (with their street driven cars) an opportunity to test their skills on the track in a safe and controlled environment.

The first major race  of 2021 takes place on July 30-31 and August 1st. This race will also feature the popular Quick 16 Event which attracts for quickest and fastest hot-rods from all over Atlantic Canada. Also there will be ADRA and CBDRA championship points racing. Then, for our second event, racing resumes on August 21-22 which will have CBRDA Points as well as our special feature, Big Rig Semi-TRUCK racing sponsored by Robby’s Truck and Trailer Service. As we move forward into the Labor-Day weekend, things will be real busy for the three day event set to go on September 3, 4, and 5th. This event will host the Atlantic Pro Tree Series, as well as CBDRA and ADRA points series racing. As well, the Atlantic Canadian Stock/Super-Stock Series will host round 5 and 6 of their points championship at this same event.

The racing season closes with the September 18-19th event which will see the CBDRA five class champions crowned for 2021. We hope you can visit us for some exciting drag-racing action at Cape Breton Dragway this summer.
