Local racer ‘Gee’ Armstrong back kicks sand racing back in gear

Florence sand drag racer Gary “Gee” Armstrong takes a break from practicing on the dunes.

June 2, 2021 — Florence-based sand drag racer Gary (“Gee”) Armstrong has been practicing at the Oregon Dunes for the upcoming 2021 racing season. Armstrong, who took home the Stock Turbo Class Crown in 2019, reflected on the lack of a season in 2020. 

“Sadly, the pandemic paused all pro racing in 2020,” he said. “But I’m excited that we’re back to a full schedule of exciting racing and events for racers and the fans in 2021.” 

Armstrong’s main sponsors are Florence Motorsports, Alba Racing, MotoOption Clothing and Siuslaw Signs & Graphics.
