Coming to Kansas City for the IZOD IndyCar Series race this weekend, or are you fortunate enough to live in the area? This Friday night, get in touch with the origins of open-wheel racing in the US, good ol’ fashion wingless sprint cars running around on a local 1/4-mile dirt track. On April 30th, Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, MO, will be featuring wingless 305 sprint cars, 1200cc lightning sprints, 600cc micro sprints, and Midwest mod-lites. Valley Speedway is a great small-town track with easy parking, great stands and facilities, and some of the best racing action around!
From the Kansas Speedway, or any parts close to there, take I-70 East to Missouri Exit #24. From there, I leave you with the directions from the Valley Speedway website.
Take exit #24 off Interstate 70 Drive south through Grain Valley on Buckner Tarsney Rd (Main Street) Turn left (east) at stoplight of Eagles Parkway (AA Highway / Old 40 Highway) Follow Old 40 hwy east 1/8 mile to track entrance on north side of road.
Gates open at 6:00pm, with hot laps starting at 7:30pm with the racing action starting immediately after. At $10 per adult, and $5 for kids 6-12, and kids 5 and under getting in for free, its one of the cheapest, most exciting nights of family entertainment you’re likely to find anywhere. Come out and enjoy our local hometown track on Friday night, then stop by the IndyCar Fan Zone on Saturday morning and let me know how you enjoyed it. See ya at the tracks!
