Drag Strip

The world-class drag strip at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park offers professional drivers and amatuers alike the opportunity to race in a controlled enviornment.  We have hosted NHRA National events since opening our doors in 1983. With one of the longest “shutdown areas” on the circuit, it’s arguably one of the safest tracks in the nation.  Notable drivers, such as Tony Schumacher, Brittany Force and Leah Pritchett have thrilled fans with record performances at our drag strip, which is open year-round for a multitude of events and is available as a track rental.  For more info,
