John Williams History
John and Shirley purchased the track in 1976.
The drag strip was in danger of being closed and
John decided to save the track
because he hated to see it close.

In 1977 John started Ponderosa Towing
in Fort Dodge because he said that through the drag
strip he could promote safe and legal racing and that
the two businesses complemented each other.

One of the first things he decided to do as an owner
is start awarding prizes to winners in the first round.
  After John's death in 1989, his wife Shirley decided
to keep the track open in his memory and kept at it
until 2014 with her husband Chuck Mortenson.

Shirley always kept the track as family oriented as she
could and referred to the racers as her second family.
The Big Schwag has worked as the host of Pass Time
in the drag racing world and as the announcer on
Discovery's hit tv show Monster Garage. He will be
at the track signing autographs, in the booth, on
the track and doing an improtu Pass Time episode!
