DODGE CITY RACEWAY PARK –
In 2000, Dodge City leaders broke ground to build a state-of-the-art facility for auto racing on the southern outskirts of town. Originally constructed as a paved surface venue, it wasn’t but a few years later the facility returned to its roots and popularity as a dirt venue. Dodge City Raceway Park, as part of the “Why NOT Dodge” initiative, brought affordable family entertainment to the city and took the title as the ‘Premier Kansas Dirt Track.’
With a seating capacity near 3,500, Dodge City Raceway Park features a multitude of motorsports entertainment events. Including five International Motor Contest Association classes, Sooner Late Models, the United Rebel Sprint Series, flat track motorcycles and a newly added grand national tractor pulling event with the National Tractor Pulling Association. DCRP rounds out its season in the fall with the ‘Steve King Memorial’ – a 3-day special event featuring sprint car and midget classes.
