(Hometown: Selkirk, Ontario)
Neale Armstrong has been involved with the sport of drag racing from a young age, as he grew up within close proximity to Dragway Park in Kohler, Ontario. When he was old enough, he got his first job at Dragway Park and in 1990 he began working as a Head Starter at Dragway Park.
In 1996, he founded the Canadian Drag Racing Series, featuring the newly established pro/modified, top/dragster, and top/sportsman classes, garnering significant success in Ontario and Quebec.
Notably, he initiated the only multi-track Canadian drag racing series on a pro car level with cooperation among tracks. In 2001, he returned to racing by driving a Jet Dragster in Lou Brookman’s “Chariot of Fire” with his best run being 5.17 ET @ 302 MPH and in 2010, Armstrong advocated for the NHRA Canadian Nitro Nationals. Today, he races with his self-designed Jet Dragster “Northern Warrior”.
With an impressive track record as Toronto Motorsports Park’s long-serving track manager, he stands as the only Canadian to have collaborated with NHRA, IHRA, and AHRA.
