Hello EV Drag Racing Fans!!

To accommodate the many vehicle owners who are planning to come out
to the biggest Wayland Invitational yet, we have moved the event back
to July 24 and 25.

This is your personal invite! The "Wayland Invitational IV" electric
drag racing EVent will be held at Portland International Raceway
(PIR). Come see what electric power is all about as NEDRA (National
Electric Drag Racing Association) hosts one of the hottest electric
vehicle racing events of the year. Electric vehicles (EV) from the
newest production cars including the Tesla and Tango, to 11 second
street rides, to all-out drag 7 second bikes and rails will be
pushing the EV performance envelope for 1/4 mile acceleration prowess.


This year's race has a special purpose as well, as NEDRA helps to
raise funds for a wonderful, bright young boy with autism. Curtis
'Junior' Cottengim needs a service dog to keep him calm and safe, but
at $13,000 it's something this Portland family needs some help with.
An optional fee at the gate plus local business and corporate
sponsorship can help make this dream a reality.

Going green doesn't mean slow, dull, & boring! Join us in cheering on
the world's quickest and most powerful tire shredding pure battery
powered cars, trucks, and motor cycles as they mix it up with the
gassers in two nights of heads up drag racing fun!


Here is a partial list of who will be attending.

1) Bill Dube and the KillaCycle
2) John Wayland and the infamous White Zombie
3) Eva Hakansson's and her frisky ElectroCat street bike
4) Mike Willmon and his Crazy Horse Pinto
5) Tesla owners with at least 2 Teslas. There could be up to 8
6) Rick Woodbury with Tango
7) Michael Kadie will be bringing his awesome Cobra 2.S.S.I.C
8) Mike Schwartz's Green Tea Model T
9) Ken Koch may bring his fantastic '32 Ford with "Berube Built" dual
GE Motors
10) Otmar Ebenhoech's LiIon Insight
. . . . and more!
