An anticipation of opening in the spring of 2018
Mild winter conditions have allowed crews to continue to work at the Onawa Racing and Events Complex (OREC) in preparation for opening the spring of 2018.
Work is being done in several areas but primarily in the areas of trenching and wiring for both high and low voltage systems. Additionally, the concrete walls along the track are now finished with the rebar and concrete cap now completed. “The place is coming together,” said Scott Gardner of Gardner Race Track Consultants. “It will be great if the weather remains mild but I doubt that will be the case” he continued.
The 2018 schedule of events and bracket class structure will be released very soon as plans are being finalized. OREC is an IHRA member track located in Onawa, Iowa that will feature more than 40 drag racing events in 2018.
