NEDRDB.com - (pronounced "nedderdeb")

NEDRDB.com is an online Wiki of Drag Racing in the New England Region

Past, Present, and Future

What is a Wiki?

  • The term “wiki” comes from the Hawaiian phrase, “wiki wiki,” which means “super fast.” A wiki is an online database of information that allows users to add and update content. Wikipedia is the most famous Wiki, but there are many others, such Kustomrama.com, and The Internet Movie Database (IMDB.com), just to name a few.

A Wiki is many things:

  • A way to gather information and knowledge about a subject
  • A site that can show all the ways that information interconnects
  • A place to build a community of like-minded people
  • A place of remembrance of the past
  • A means to let people know what is happening right now
  • A way to build for the future

NEDRDB.com is intended to be a community resource and archive for the racers, fans, tracks, related businesses that are involved in the sport of Drag Racing in the New England region.

The history of Drag Racing in New England begins more than 70 years ago, when the New England Timing Association (NETA) was formed in the late 1940s. NETA hosted the first “official” drag racing events at the Beverly Municipal Airport in 1950, and there have been drag races held somewhere in New England every racing season since.

Just as drag racing requires dedicated and passionate participants to succeed and grow, NEDRDB.com needs dedicated and passionate people to help build the database of information. There have been thousands of drag racers, running thousands of eliminations at dozens of drag strips in the past 70 years. No one person can compile all of that information.

NEDRDB.com needs your help to gather the data and build the Wiki.

Please contact NEDRDB.com today if you interested in helping to curate or edit the wiki, or if you have information or photos that you would like to share on the Northeast Drag Racing Database.
