FAIRBANKS — A group trying to build Alaska’s second drag racing strip has moved closer toward its goal.
The Fairbanks North Star Borough Planning Commission has approved an application by the Fairbanks Racing Lions for a half-mile track adjacent to North Pole Speedway, a dirt track for stock cars.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the vote was 5-2.
The group agreed to 16 conditions. Most were to dampen sound from racers’ engines.
