HOUSE SPRINGS, Missouri. — Ozark Raceway Park has a storied past and is looking towards a bright future.

The Rogersville, Missouri facility, located less than an hour from Arkansas and an hour and a half from Kansas, is currently in his 45th year of operation. It features a 1/4-mile strip which has hosted some of the biggest names in drag racing.

“Big Daddy” Don Garlits qualified No. 1 in Top Fuel for the 1978 Ozark Nationals, a race which Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen led the Funny Car field. Those two and Pro Stock legend Lee Shepherd were professional class winners at the 1979 Ozark Nationals. More recently, Scott Palmer set a track record of 264.55 mph in his Top Fuel dragster in 2020.

Ozark Raceway Park features 330 feet of ground concrete and an upgraded Accutime timing system. Playing off its natural beauty, a large amount of trees provide shade and reduce crosswinds. There are concessions open during all racing events and clean restrooms available. 

While the powerful Nitro machines and Jet Cars are part of the track’s rich history, the IHRA’s commitment to grassroots, Sportsman racing most appeals to new track owners Katie Lotsberg and Kevin Jewer in taking care of their weekly racers.

There will be a closer look at Ozark Raceway Park in the coming weeks. Go to www.raceorp.com to learn more about this amazing facility.
