State Capitol Raceway Provides Fun and Entertainment for Racers and Families

Wednesday, 18 April 2018
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-  Po’ Boys and the Bayou, are some of the things that you will encounter when you arrive to the State of Louisiana. However, situated just 20 minutes to the west of state capital, Baton Rouge, sits State Capitol Raceway in Port Allen, La., the site of the season opening Summit Sportsman Spectacular, April 20-22.
Enter State Capitol Raceway and you will find that the family friendly track’s goal is to make everyone feel like it’s their first time visiting. 
“It starts from the top down from having local items in the concession areas to affordable ticket prices for spectators,” track general manager Gary Carter said. 
A milestone will be reached in 2019 with the track celebrating its 50th anniversary. State Capitol Raceway is the third oldest quarter-mile track that has been continuously ran since it was opened in 1969 by W.O. Bergeron, who worked as a local pipeline contractor. 
The track has also gotten its fame on Hollywood’s silver screen. Various scenes of the Dukes of Hazzard (2005) movie were filmed on location using the dragstrip as part of the Annual Hazzard Rally. 
Ahead of the IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular debut, Carter mentioned there has been noticeable excitement that has been filling the air amongst racers anticipating this weekend’s event.
“As we have gotten closer to this weekend, all of our racers have been constantly talking about how excited they are to take part in the debut of the Summit Sportsman Spectacular. This program gives the bracket racing-competitors an opportunity to shine in front of family, fans, and friends.” Carter said.  
Fans can attend the debut of the IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular at State Capitol Raceway Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22. Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for children ages 6-12 for the weekend.
