Heartland Park Topeka is a multi-purpose motorsports facility located convert|5|mi|km|0 south of Topeka, Kansas.

When it opened in 1989, it was the first brand-new auto racing facility to be built in the United States for 20 years. Its facilities include a road-race course with 4 possible configurations (ranging from convert|1.8|mi|km|1 to convert|2.5|mi|km|1 in length), a ⅜ mile clay oval, off-road course and a ¼ mile drag strip. After several years of neglect, owing to continual financial difficulties, the track surface and other facilities had deteriorated badly and the very survival of the track was in doubt. In 2003, it was bought by Raymond Irwin, former owner (2007) of Blackhawk Farms Raceway, who has instituted a program of major renovations to the facility.

The drag-strip is used by local clubs and the National Hot Rod Association. The road-course is mainly used by the SCCA and marque-clubs. The track has been the home of both the SCCA's National Championship Runoffs and the The Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships since 2006. In the past, it has hosted ARCA, ASA, IMSA, AMA and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events.
