Following a total renovation of what used to be Moroso Motorsports Park, a new Palm Beach International Raceway has emerged. This striking transformation is now well under way, and the completion of an all-new road course, currently awaiting FIA approval, has transformed the look and feel of the facility.
The new owners are also proud to announce their Wayne McMurtry-designed all-concrete drag strip with excellent run-off and safety facilities. As the track meets the latest safety standards in all forms of drag racing, it can accommodate one-eighth mile, Junior Dragster, quarter-mile Sportsman and Pro classes if and when the sanctioning bodies and teams wish to return to this new facility.
Palm Beach International Raceway partners, Scott Revell, Ron Dixon, and Keith Wilson announced their substantial stake in a partnership which has resulted in the new PBIR.
Revell commented, "With our combined experience, we are working with our new partners Joe Lubeck and J.C. Solomon towards completing the facility in its entirety over the next twelve months. The results will yield one of the finest motor sport parks in North America, with Palm Beach, Florida as a destination."
"The road course and drag strip are now completed," continued Revell, "and testing at the tracks will commence in four weeks."
Partner Ron Dixon and father of current Indy 500 winner and twice IRL champion Scott Dixon, said, "I've never seen a better road course surface than this, and we are soon to announce its FIA certification."
Concerning the future of the drag strip, PBIR is currently in discussions with NHRA's Tom Compton, Graham Light, and senior vice president Gary Darcy with PBIR's drag strip track master, the legendary George Case.
