Lucas Oil Speedway is considered by Industry Insiders to be one of the top five Race Tracks in the Nation. Located in Wheatland, Missouri, about an hour north of Springfield and only about an hour and a half from Kansas City.

Twenty one luxury suites, a giant HD Jumbo Tron Screen, Musco Sports lighting, a Bose Stadium Sound System, Go Kart Track for all ages, The Diamond Bar, the best track food in the country, and the nicest pits in dirt track racing are just a few of the amenities that set us apart.
