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

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
