The International Hot Rod Association has welcomed North Star Dragway and its new owner Gene Nicodemus to the family of IHRA member tracks.
Located in Denton, Texas, the facility becomes the 15th track located in the state of Texas to join the IHRA family, and was named NHRA’s Most Improved Track in 2012.
North Star Dragway opened in 1995 as I-35 North Texas Dragway, and over the last 18 years has undergone significant upgrades. In the early 2000s the track was lengthened by over 800 feet, making it the longest all-concrete 1/8th mile track in the state of Texas.
The track has also added other amenities including a brand new timing tower, concession stands and brand new bathrooms in addition to 300,000 square feet of asphalt parking.
In addition to being named the 2012 NHRA Most Improved Track, North Star Dragway is the reigning NHRA Division 4 Bracket Finals champion.
It is an extremely popular facility with both the racers and the fans. Multiple outlaw events attract thousands of fans to the track during the weekends, and the weekly bracket series makes North Star Dragway a premier destination for racers in and around the Dallas area.
North Star Dragway is the first facility signed under the new IHRA ownership of Jason Rittenberry, Michael Dezer, Jospeh Lubeck and Edward Kobel.
