Onondaga Dragway To Re-Open In June

Posted:

ONODAGA, Mich. (WLNS) - Inspite of some controversy over the last few years, a plot of land that's been vacant for 35-years will be up and running by the summer for a dragway in Onodaga Township.

 

 

After three years of trying, Daniel Pranshka and his business partner were awarded a permit to re-open Onondaga Dragway.

 

"I say the Onondaga Dragway - I can be in Pigeon Forge, I can be in Florida, people know what the Onondaga Dragway was and hopefully we can get it up and going and get it back to that standard," said Pranshka.

Pranshka and his partner are investing $250,000 to renovate the plot, adding concessions and spectator stands fencing. He credits the community for making his dream a reality.

Gary Fedewa restores and builds racing cars in Leslie. The dragway won't necessarily bring him more business, but he believes it will attract more people to the town and that's good for everyone.

Pranshka calls it good family fun, made popular recently by the TV show Pinks. Once it's up and running, they're aiming for the end of June, it will also bring jobs. They'll hire 30 to 80 seasonal workers.
