Leroy Liburd took home the trophy at the 2010 Dragfest during Nevis Culturama. Drag racing in Nevis you ask? Yes!!! Although Nevis is a small island it draws drag racers from many of its surrounding islands which do not offer a drag racing facility. In fact, Minister of Sports on Nevis, the Hon Hensley Daniel, recently expressed his interest in marketing this national treasure in regional and international markets.
The winner of this year’s Dragfest, Leroy Liburd, hails from St. Maarten. Leroy Liburd and his team were simply ecstatic over the win and spent some time with the Red Carpet Shelley team in the winner’s circle.
It was great fun – shout outs to Leroy, Minerva and the crew from St. Maarten and glad you got back home safely!!! Congrats!!
Look out for the next major drag racing event is scheduled for September 19 in Nevis.
