Douglas Motorsports Park was founded back in the 1980’s and was a drag racers “hot spot” for multiple NHRA drag racing events that brought in racers from all over the country to compete with some of the fastest drag racers we have all come to know and love. Back in this era, Douglas, Wyoming was the only drag strip we had in Wyoming and was shut down back in 2015. Since then, drag racers in the state have had to travel many hours to the nearest track to enjoy this ever-growing sport.
This summer, Central Wyoming Motorsports was granted a handful of permits by the city council, mayor, and the Converse County Commissioners to rent the old, very well known drag strip. Each event that has been hosted this summer has been bigger and better than the last.
September 26th will be the fourth, final race that will be held this year by Central Wyoming Motorsports, and it is going to be the biggest one yet! There will be five different food vendors in case anyone gets hungry and the PSCA merchandise trailer will be on site with apparel for purchase. CWM has been working with local businesses in Casper and Douglas and were able to put together backpacks full of goodies for the first 100 kids to come through the gate.
