Houston Raceway Park

Houston Raceway Park is a quarter-mile dragstrip in Baytown, Texas, just outside Houston. It opened in 1988 and hosts the NHRA's O'Reilly Spring Nationals. It has a seating capacity of 30,000 spectators, with additional grandstand seating brought in during major events. Houston Raceway Park's 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.

In 2000, Houston Raceway Park opened a new world class high banked 3/8 mile dirt oval track at the facility.

The track is owned by the Angel Brothers of Baytown, Texas.
