SRCA Dragstrip
The SRCA Dragstrip, right here in Great Bend, is home of the first ever NHRA National Event - which hosted 219 drag racers and 15,000 spectators in 1955!

The club pursued recognition as a Kansas Historical Site and succeeded in getting that title in 1994. The facilities include paved pit areas with electricity hook ups.

In 2000, the track was resurfaced and in 2003, a new compu-link system was installed and a new concession building was built with air-conditioned restrooms with showers.

In 2011, construction on a new tower was completed and 1320-go-live timing was installed, along with the addition of concrete barriers spanning from the quarter-mile to crossover road for safety. 

Races take place about twice a month between the months of March and October.
Events for the dragstrip can be found in our Calendar of Events
