Spokane Raceway Park
Spokane Raceway Park or Spokane County Raceway is a 2.5-mile road course and a quarter-mile drag strip near Airway Heights, Washington. The track is currently an International Hot Rod Association member; it previously hosted National Hot Rod Association and American Hot Rod Association events. It is used as well for driving schools for marque-specific clubs. It has also hosted ICSCC championship events.
The track was founded in 1974 when investors produced more than two million dollars to build the facility. The track was questionably managed, resulting in a lawsuit against trustee Orville Moe, and bankruptcy hearings. Moe was eventually fired. The track was sold as of April 10, 2008, and purchased by Spokane County. The park has been renamed; it is now "Spokane County Raceway."
