Today, we make our way to Arkansas. We’ll be honest, Arkansas made us really do some digging as we searched for drag strips. Why? Well, it could be because they really love off-road racing (so do we). Here’s where you can race in Arkansas—on the drag strip or on an off-road track.
Centerville Dragway Inc.
Centerville Dragway Inc. is a hot spot for drag racers all over Arkansas and a proud family-owned business. The strip is 1000 and ⅛ mile race track and has been open for business since 1977. They currently have an event lined up for the first weekend in September and you can learn all about it on their Facebook page, along with other fall events.
George Rays Wildcat Dragstrip
Located in north Arkansas near the border of Missouri you’ll find Paragould, home of George Rays Wildcat Dragstrip. You can find updates on their Facebook page along with plenty of photos of this tree-lined strip.
The only time you’ll see this place closed is when the owners Jackie and Velvet Lewis are off participating in their own races. Their website is currently under construction, but you can find all the information you need by visiting their Facebook page or by calling Jackie at 870-904-5952 or Greg Dougan at 870-796-1485.
Off-road racing is popular in Arkansas, and the I-30 Speedway is one of the most popular tracks in the state. The speedway is a 1/4 mile, high-banked, made of red clay oval, and conveniently located in Little Rock. The speedway is currently open and you can find the latest updates on their website.
