The Onawa Racing and Events Complex has entered into a multi-year sanctioning agreement with the International Hot Rod Association.

The facility under construction in Onawa, Iowa will feature an 1/8-mile drag strip, which can easily be converted into a -mile strip, with 3,400 feet of concrete laid down. With a goal to race later this year, the facility also has a 10,000-square foot activities event center in the planning stages. There are 105 acres overall with events from Motorsports to concerts and auctions to be part of the schedule once construction is finished.

Track representative Phil Schroder, who has owned a towing, recovery and heavy equipment business for 46 years, talked about the commitment that IHRA has shown to the grassroots, Sportsman racer as seen through its involvement with ESPN3. In addition, he and the other members of the facility's board of directors appreciate IHRA's commitment to growing the sport of drag racing in their case, literally from the ground up.

"From being involved in racing for years, IHRA has a lot to offer to the Sportsman and Junior Dragster racers at our track," Schroder said. "We've talked to our sanctioning bodies, but IHRA was so helpful answering questions day and night. I've been in business for 46 years and service is the answer in this country. IHRA cared about helping us getting up and running even before we signed any sanctioning contract."

Phil Ginergich, IHRA special advisor for track development, added, "It will be a great facility with drag racing and other events in that part of the Midwest. New construction is always welcome because that stirs up new interest in everybody."
