We are a full service racing facility that caters to sponsors, the drag racing participant and fans.  We feature excellent covered seating, state-of-the-art timing equipment, paved parking, lighting and on site fuel sales along with other amenities. 
In 2010, we were honored to receive the
Division 4 Summit Super Series Track of the Year award
The track elevation is 1719 feet above sea level.

We host many exciting events during the year. Check our schedule for dates and times. If your club or organization is interested in hosting an event, our facility is available for rental.  Please contact us for details.

Our track features an all concrete racing surface, including the burnout area. Over 2000' of concrete barricades line both sides of the track, enhancing safety, reducing the effects of crosswinds and reducing the chance for debris to enter the racing surface.

There are over 10 acres of paved, lighted and striped pit parking.  Fence parking is deep for truck/trailer/race car while the middle lanes are wide for motor home/big trailer/race car park beside.  Spaces are angled to ease entrance and exit from the pit spaces. We also offered leased parking spaces, some with available electric service, for the season.
  The pit side concessions feature a covered eating area.
The track is well lighted for night racing, including a wide and lighted return road
Fuel is available on site.  We feature VP Racing Fuels. 

Full facilities with air conditioning are available on the spectator and the pit sides of the track.  The ladies facilities feature 110V power plugs.

We are equipped and ready to assist sponsors in the advertising and promotion of products and services. We have numerous options for signage and displays. The tower also features a VIP suite that is available for entertaining guests and clients. Space is available for product promotions and displays. The Big Country Race Way can offer you considerable value for your advertising dollars.
Sponsor signage lines the staging lanes and is visible when entering
via the track main entrance.
Staging lane / entrance signage is also echoed in the staging lanes.
There is covered seating for 500 on both sides of the track.  There are excellent views of the entire track, starting line to the finish, from all seats.  The stands are handicap accessible with close by handicap parking. A professional sound system feeds the stands, pits and the parking areas with information, commentary and professionally produced sponsor information broadcasts.
Signage is prominent on the tops of the bleachers - the spectator side bleacher signage is highly visible from Interstate 20, which passes by the race track.

views of the entire track.
