Reviews of Houston Raceway Park in Baytown

Houston Raceway Park venue information

Houston Raceway Park, formerly known as Royal Purple Raceway, is a quarter-mile dragstrip in Baytown, Texas, just outside Houston. Built in 1988, the Park is situated on 500 acres on the eastern edge of the greater Houston metropolitan area and is Houston's only major multi-purpose motorsports venue. The dragstrip boasts a three-story tower building that incorporates 23 VIP suites, a media center, and race control facilities equipped with timing and scoring equipment. In 2000, Houston Raceway Park opened a new high banked 3/8 mile dirt oval at the facility.

Houston Raceway Park's spacious, paved pit area holds approximately 400 racing rigs, with additional pit parking available on grass. The spectator parking lots have a capacity of over 10,000 cars, along with a special VIP parking area capable of holding an additional 600 vehicles.

The Park has a seating capacity of 30,000, with additional grandstand seating brought in during major events to accommodate reserved seat requests. Houston Raceway Park has permanent rest room facilities and concession buildings, located near spectator seating on both sides of the race track.

Houston Raceway Park has an exclusive contract with the National Hot Rod Association to host a NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series National Event within a 200-mile radius of the Houston metropolitan area, called the NHRA SpringNationals. The track is owned by the Angel Brothers of Baytown, Texas.
