The idea for a drag racing and event facility came from a team of community leaders and business owners searching for alternative uses of Onawa’s under-used municipal airport. Racing enthusiasts were overcome by the idea, so much that many then joined the effort to develop the dream plan. With the support of the community and Onawa City Officials, the dream eventually became a reality.
OREC has built a racing and event center facility used primarily for public entertainment. Seasonal weekly drag races every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Annually, as well as private and public events on site throughout the year are OREC’s focus.
