Byron Dragway is a ¼ mile (402 meter) dragstrip located in Byron, Illinois, about 1.5 hours from Chicago (84 miles, 134 km straight-line distance). The dragway was opened in the 1960s, and at first it ran cars four abreast. However, that practice was discontinued. For that reason, Byron is a comparatively wide track. It is currently best known as the site of the World Power Wheel Standing Championships.

Owner: Bryant Vangsness
