WEST PALM BEACH, Fla, — Pageland Dragway has distinguished itself as a top venue in a tradition-rich racing area. 

Located halfway between the racing hotspots of Charlotte and Darlington, the South Carolina track has been the place of dreams for a quarter-century. Pageland Dragway, which is celebrating its 25th year, recently renewed its commitment to the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) through a new sanctioning agreement.Pageland Dragway logo

There’s a good mixture of bracket racing with the IHRA Summit SuperSeries and grudge racing on the 1/8-mile drag strip. With a moderate climate, there are races scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays from March to November.

In addition, there’s a special street car event in December. The track has even hosted motorcycle and ATV races. As a proud IHRA-member track, Pageland Dragway follows all IHRA safety rules.
