Brief History

The Alberni Valley Drag Race Association (AVDRA) began in 2001. The drag race association was born out of a passion for drag racing and a desire to highlight the beauty of Vancouver Island as a viable destination race location and the only 1/4 mile race track on Vancouver Island. In addition to bringing economic viability to the Alberni Valley, the drag race also fosters a strong sense of community through volunteerism and cross-pollination of local businesses and services available throughout Port Alberni.


Mission & Vision
The Alberni Valley Drag Race Association strives to bring the sport of drag racing to the Alberni Valley and to increase opportunities for economic growth, cultural capital, volunteerism and destination tourism.
