Mooresville Dragway, NCGlen Leazer opened the Mooresville Dragway in the early 1960s, and it remained in the family for over 50 years. Its location outside of Mooresville, North Carolina, puts it in the center of the motorsport world.

The History

In the early 1970s, Glen Leazer’s son, GW, took over the track operations, and the oldest son, Doug, served as manager for most of those years. Son Jody ran the business throughout the final few years until a temporal shutdown in 2015.

During the 1980s and 1990s, the Leazer family established Mooresville Dragway as a significant bracket racing icon and also contributed to the growth of the Pro Modified division by hosting numerous Quick 8 events.
