The North Florida Motorplex—the drag strip and dirt track in Fountain, Florida, formerly known as Powerhouse Motorsports Park—has new owners.
Kevin and Cody McDaniel—brothers that operate Piggly Wiggly grocery stores in Florida and Alabama—have taken over ownership of the facility, home to the 1/8-mile drag strip now sanctioned by the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA).
Track improvements include a new concession stand, tower, and bleachers. In addition, officials have widened the drag strip, plus installed new concrete walls, lighting, and an Accutime timing system. Preparation was overseen by Kurt Johnson of Total Venue Concepts.
“We put new bleachers in. We’re looking at it from a different standpoint and put in VIP decks. It’s open air, and we have televisions and a bar up there. We’ve tried to make it a place for people to gather and hang out,” said Kevin.
With sponsorship from Coca-Cola, the track will offer a $60,000 points fund, bonuses, and a vacation package to Panama City Beach.
