Onawa Dragway, IHRA Reach Multi-Year Agreement

The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) and Onawa Dragway have entered into a multi-year sanctioning agreement.

Onawa Dragway, in Onawa, Iowa, is 10 miles from the Nebraska border and sits across the Missouri River. The facility—which features a 1/8-mile drag strip—opened in August 2018 to a sold-out crowd and a car count of over 150.

The Western Iowa facility participated in the IHRA Midwest Summit Team Finals and features the IHRA Summit SuperSeries. The track also hosts the Midwest Index Series.

The track hosts a number of special events, including Summer Madness, (formerly Thunder on the Prairie) and the Midwest Bash.

“Onawa Dragway has already proven the ‘if you build it, they will come’ philosophy in late 2019,” IHRA Division Director Jon O’Neal said. “There have been big steps to get the facility operating and the racers have done a great job representing the International Hot Rod Association over this past couple of years. I’m excited to see where new lessees and operators Dan and Judy Wilson take the facility for years to come.”
