History

The 74,000-seat Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas is a 1.5-mile tri-oval. The racetrack opened in 1998 and it’s owned by the International Speedway Corporation. The Kansas Speedway hosts the Go Bowling 400 and the Hollywood Casino 400.

Over the years, the Kansas Speedway has been expanded and renovated a few times. The first expansion took place in 2003 and added 1,600 seats. A couple of years later, 1,500 seats and a new restroom and concession building were added in 2005. Then in 2012, the $380 million Hollywood Hotel and Casino overlooking the track opened. Most recently, the track was reconfigured, and an infield course was added later in 2012.

Since opening in 1998, the Kansas Speedway has hosted a variety of racing events. The track is home to two NASCAR Cup Series races a year and is also the site of the Kansas ARCA 150. The speedway also hosted the IndyCar RoadRunner Turbo 300 from 2001 to 2010 and the United SportsCar Championship Grand Prix of Kansas from 2013 to 2014.
