Race To The Future

Untitled Document Home Page

The Race To The Future organization has entered into discussions for repurposing an existing facility to return drag racing to the Kansas City area in the spring of 2013. Negotiations are expected to go into the fall of 2012 and specific details will be announced pending successful completion of negotiations.

Co-Chairman, James Friend stated, “Our organization is very excited with the prospect of returning drag racing to Kansas City and ending the recent deadly street racing by providing a safe racing venue for our city’s youth. It’s been a long difficult search but with a number of exciting location possibilities under consideration we are anxious to begin narrowing the discussions leading all of the racers and racing fans to a new racing home.”

The Race To The Future organization is an all volunteer board of racers, sponsors and industry professionals joined together to actively seek a solution to the demand for drag racing in the Kansas City area. The R2TF organization was formed shortly after the sudden closing of Kansas City International Raceway in November 2011. The R2TF board recognizes the urgent need of the entire Kansas City metropolitan area to bring an end to the illegal and lethal street racing that has again reemerged once KCIR was closed. Interestingly, KCIR was originally opened in 1967 by a drag racer that was compelled into action to end the muscle car street racing that was endangering the public and Kansas City’s youth.
