Heartland Park Topeka

Heartland Park Topeka is a multi-purpose motorsports facility located 5 miles (8 km) south of Topeka, Kansas.

When it opened in 1989, it was the first brand-new auto racing facility to be built in the United States for 20 years. Its facilities include a road-race course with 4 possible configurations (ranging from 1.8 miles (2.9 km) to 2.5 miles (4.0 km) in length), a ⅜ mile clay oval, off-road course and a ¼ mile drag strip.

After several years of neglect, owing to continual financial difficulties, the track surface and other facilities had deteriorated badly and the very survival of the track was in doubt.

In 2003, it was bought by Raymond Irwin, former owner (2007) of Blackhawk Farms Raceway, who has instituted a program of major renovations to the facility.

The drag-strip is used by local clubs and the National Hot Rod Association. The road-course is mainly used by the SCCA and marque-clubs. The track was the home of both the SCCA National Championship Runoffs and the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships from 2006 to 2008. In the past, it has hosted ARCA, ASA, IMSA, AMA and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series' O'Reilly Auto Parts 275.
