DeatschWerks as a company took the afternoon off this past month for a fun day of racing at our local drag strip, Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Oklahoma. Employees and friends of DW were allowed to bring and race their own cars all afternoon long.
It was a great turnout with a lot of friendly competitive racing, and a few of our employees even ran personal best passes. Our Owner, David Deatsch, ran the quickest time of the day among our employees, breaking into the 10's in his Porsche Turbo!
