710 Dragway Becomes Latest IHRA Member Track

Tuesday, 30 April 2024

ROWLAND, NC — The International Hot Rod Association roster of member tracks continues to grow with the addition of 710 Dragway.

710 Dragway returns to the family after being an IHRA track a decade ago. It is an eighth-mile, all-concrete facility. Built in 1962, the facility was purchased by Jerry Oxendine in 2012. He completely re-did the whole track with all new concrete surface including the shutdown area.

He continues to do work on the Eastern North Carolina facility with a new timing system installed Friday. The property, located just 10 minutes off Interstate 95, sits on 75 acres with parking and camping. They allow some camping through the week outside of the races. 

There are concrete barriers, restrooms, showers and concessions. Oxendine has installed new concrete bleachers on the right side of the track and new LED lights. There are plans to have a game room for the kids with video games and pool tables.

The track surface gets rave reviews from the racers, and the drag strip easily drains as it sits 42 inches above sea level.

“We’ve got one of the smoothest track surfaces in the country,” Oxendine said. “I know every track owner says that, but we have tons of racers who tell us that. We put a lot of work into it. We had a layout of how to build the track as far as the thickness of the concrete, the design, all the way down to the dirt.”

With the great reputation and convenient location, the track has drawn racers as far away as Canada to the No Prep events.

Dragway officials describe the facility as family-friendly track that loves to see our racers and fans come together and have a great time at the track. Competitors at 710 Dragway will now have the opportunity to participate in the IHRA Summit SuperSeries, the most prestigious national championship in bracket racing.

“We just brought bracket racing back, but it’s exciting how IHRA has expanded its overall program,” Oxendine said. “We probably will be doing from 12-15 bracket races this season.”

Outside of racing, they host 3-4 concerts per year. Click here for the 710 Dragway Facebook page.
