2014 GLD Signage Program

Dragstrip advertising has proven to be one of the most affordable and effective ways to reach your audience at a racing facility. Research also indicates that drag racing fans and racers are loyal to those who support their favorite venues, and will buy from companies that they recognize from the race track.

With Great Lakes Dragaway's signage program, you are advertising to over 200,000 people in annual attendance who will read your sign, as well as hear the announcer's voice speaking about your business.

Free internet promotion on www.greatlakesdragaway.com is also included with all signage contracts valued at $2500 or more. According to search analytics companies who do their own research, GLD's website is one of the most frequently visited drag strip websites in the Midwest and the east coast.

With over 20 million yearly pageviews, 15,000 unique visitors per month on our website, and upwards of 200,000 people who attend GLD events annually, you are potentially advertising your business for less than one penny per person for the first time they read your signage, and every time they see and hear it again is practically free. Website traffic statistics for GLD's website are available upon request.

Take a look at the following signage packages we offer in various locations on the facility. We also offer an online advertising package that includes links to your business on our website, but does not include a billboard.


Trackside Billboards

Located along the race track from the starting line up to the 400 foot mark, trackside billboards are visible to all spectators and racers alike. This location also gives extreme internet advertising... virtually all fan-taken pictures and videos that are posted on Facebook or Youtube show these billboards with clear visibility.

Starting Line Billboards

Along the Track Billboards

Trackside Billboards
8'X12' positioned on the starting line: $3500
Trackside Billboards
Positioned 200-400 feet down track:

8' x 8': $1000
8' x 12': $1500

All prices are for 1 contract year. You must supply your own sign, and there is a one time $200 install fee to mount the sign, one time fee meaning that there will be $200 charged to install your sign, but you do not need to pay this fee in subsequent years if you elect to renew your contract.


Tower Billboard

Show the power of your billboard by mounting it onto the race control tower... these billboards stand out the most and are visible by everyone. Rivaled only as the most powerful advertising spot on the property by the score board signs.

Score Boards

The ultimate advertising spot at Great Lakes Dragaway is on the Score Boards. Aside from being viewed every single time people turn their heads to see how fast a racer went, sponsoring the scoreboard also means you are sponsoring that lane. The announcers routinely say, for example, "and in the Miller Lite lane we have the MOFOCO Funny Car taking the win at 212 miles per hour!!" The scoreboard sponsors are also listed on every single timeslip, and to top it off, a large banner link to your website is listed near the very top of GLD's website home page, which is a $2000 value in itself.

Scoreboard Sponsorship
Positioned on top of the score board, only 2 available!: $7000

With great power comes great responsibility. All contracts are for THREE contract years, with full $7000 1st year payment plus $500 install fee due before sign will be installed. If you pay The full three year $21,000 price up front, we will waive the $500 install fee.

GLD Website Advertising

For folks who do not wish to purchase a billboard, but would still like to have their business's website advertised on one of the most frequently visited drag strip websites in the midwest and east coast, we offer banner link placement.

Payment for internet advertising is due in full before your banner will be placed. By purchasing an online contract, or getting one included for free with a billboard contract, you agree that your banner may be slightly edited (resized, slight color changes to not cause clashing with the GLD website design, etc.) before being posted.
