The concession stand were awesome they could do a little bit more about the bleachers where you sit in maybe at some kind of covered area for disabled people that can't sing in the heat that love to c...ome dragracing are the older folks like me. Other than that the dragstrip was really nice the parking lot was a little different but overall for a country dragstrip I give it of four stars See More

First off, I want to say I'm from Kansas City, Missouri. My dad used to consistently race a few times a month at Kansas City International Raceway until it closed in 2011. Losing that track left my da...d, I and many others in the area in a tough spot. We lost a place that had created years of incredible memories. As such, there are no drag strips with an hour of Kansas City. Therefore, he sold his cars and I lost the strong interest I had for a number of years of watching drag racing as a kid. Long story short, I hadn't been to Ozark Raceway Park in about 12 or 13 years (back when it was called Ozark International Raceway). ORP is one of five tracks I went to as a kid. I went to ORP twice to watch my cousin run in the pro mod class. ORP was my favorite of the five tracks. Anyway, I hadn't been to a drag race in about 7 years. I had thought about going last year but couldn't find the time. This year I looked on the ORP website and thought the 40th Anniversary race looked like a good one to attend. I talked my dad into going with me this past weekend to the race. I just want to say that it was a first-class experience. We had an incredible time! I loved most of the classes. Pro Street, 8.5, and Drag Radial were my favorite. The track crew did an amazing job making sure the track was in the safest condition for the drivers. I truly believe the attention to detail on the track was why there were NO wrecks (which is a great thing). I just want to thank the ORP staff for an incredible day. We stayed until the final race Saturday night. It was absolutely worth the 2 hour and 45 minute drive. Thank you for bringing back so many great childhood memories. I will certainly be back to the track later this year. See More

Great race track. Building a car now and can't wait to bring it out. I have been to a lot of tracks but these guys really keep things moving and safe for everyone. The midnights you put on are great. ...The only thing I see that could be better is the stands. I think you should put on a fundraising race to pay for new seats! I recommend this track to everyone. My wife and I love coming out to watch great racing! See More

ORP will always be my favorite place to race. There is usually better prep there on a test n tune night than there is at most tracks on race day. I will always call that track home.

Nice place, good events. Reasonable entry fee and food concessions cheapest I've ever seen at this type of place. ORP doing it right.

After a year of building our 1966 Comet we did our first run at ORP September 24, 2016 and couldn't be happier. Al and his crew were very helpful and made us feel comfortable. The fans that came to su...pport us were very impressed with the track and how it is managed as we were too. Thank you ORP for a memorable and positive experience. P.S. We noticed there were photographers on the sidelines. Does anyone have their contact information? See More

Another long evening at ORP. Several coats of VP LC-7 glue and lots of tires, the surface is really coming around. The concrete is really taking rubber and it's ready to bracket race now. Once we get a Friday night and Saturdays Bracket race rubber laid down.....look out next weekend at the shootout!! Talking with Kane and Ralphy this evening and they are really excited at how the track is taking rubber and how it's adhering to the concrete. Better put the big tune up in fellas, ORP is the house of hook!

Happy 60th birthday Al! Your story is quite amazing and I am so grateful that God was looking out for you from the very beginning...and allowed our paths to cross that evening in Sioux Center Iowa. I love you...and am looking forward to celebrating many more birthdays with you!

BIG NEWS ORP NATION.......Just a little teaser for everybody about a newly added event for 2018. Rocky Mountain Race Week will be coming to ORP on the evening of June 19th.

WE ARE EXCITED TO BE DAY #3!!!!! No shameless name dropping here, but Matt Frost, Doug Cline, Larry Larson, and a multitude of other players of this game are on the list of attendees.

HEADS UP ORP NATION.......March 3rd is only 5 weeks away!! We are excited to get going on the new season and have some cool new stuff in store. We have talked a little bit about Pure Street, the new BEGINERS bracket that will be ran during All Parts Auto Salvage Races as well as No Box being added too. Keep your eyes open as we start another new game to be played at TnT or during Midnight Drags called Chip Racing. The premise of this is to buy your chips at the gate, use them to bet with your grudge racing buddies in the lanes, then spend them at ORP or cash them in at the end of the night.......I see some big money winners in the future here! Also calendars to be out soon, we will announce here where to pick them up. Get out to the garage and get your stuff together folks!

What a tribute to Neal Chance (and many would argue one of the greatest minds in automatic transmission/converter technology) and one of ORP's greatest competitors and successful racers Showtime Don! Shown here with his "Nealy" he won for being a 2017 Champion, holding it close and guarded! 😍

You might not know, but Don's Nealy is a traveling Nealy........

Hey ORP Nation, can we help some friends out?

We are currently hunting a reasonably priced 1963 Impala 2dr. We say reasonably priced since we are only looking for a clean roof and quarters, with a VIN plate and title.

What's out there? What y'all got for sale?

This movie is dedicated to the staff and management of Ozark Raceway Park located near Springfield Missouri.
It contains a compilation of various videos of the ORP staff during the off season.

All of you southerners are worked up about a little sleet and snow.......LETS GO DRAG RACING!

Alan Rodenborn shared Red Line Shirt Club's video to the group: North Iowa Dragway.

Just think about how much hot chocolate the concession stand would sell!

Perfect racing weather... SNOW AND ICE!!

Merrill Ice Drags in Merrill, Wisconsin were founded in 1965 so local men and women could cont...inue to have automobile-style drag racing fun during the winter months. In 1970 the sport became more competitive and well known. At that time the club became Incorporated. 5 decades later, a new web site, Facebook Page and record spectator attendance continue to make this event a success!
