Documenting the First Public Drag Races on the East Coast

Fairchild Field Drag Strip ShutteRelease Films is happy to announce that it has been working on a new documentary centered on Burlington NC. Between 1953 and 1956, the Carolina Roadrunners auto club put on drag race events at the old Fairchild Airport in Burlington. The documentary outlines the history of the club, its races, and the airport that hosted the races. Interviews are still going on and we expect to release the documentary in the first half of 2018.

We are looking for anyone who has home movies of drag races from Fairchild. One of our primary sources remembers that some were captured and has seen them. Should anyone know of or have this material, please contact us!
