On that day all of the special Test-n-Tune fees along with ½ of the special spectator gate fees will go towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “ERP is the home track of Tommy Johnson Jr the driver of the Make-A-Wish sponsored Nitro Funny Car and we are glad to help with such a great cause” stated track manager Gerald Kramer.

All other entries will be standard fees.

Also, on that day, we are expecting several pro cars and bikes to be testing so we hope everyone comes out to help us support this cause and enjoy a great day of racing. We would also like to thank Jeff Huber for all his help in getting this event going.

Attention Street ET Racers!

For 2017 we will enforce the rule on requiring street legal tires in this class. When we switched from NHRA a couple of years ago which allowed drag slicks in the sportsman class we stated we would allow them for a while even though the rules for IHRA ET Finals requires street legal tires. We feel it is time to align our rules with those of IHRA for the ET Finals and enforce it.

Clarification of Street Tire Rule for Street ET

Street legal tire means it has a DOT stamp on the tire, this applies to our Fast Four classes on our Midnight Madness events, and our Street Car Challenge class as well. Hope this clears up some confusion of what street legal tire means.


Teen Championship Racing

IHRA has a program that allows teenagers 13 to 17 years old to compete against each other in street legal cars and trucks. This is a very inexpensive way for families to get involved in drag racing and a chance for parents to cultivate a close working relationship with their children. A co-driver will ride with the teen competitors on all runs to coach the driver and join in the fun. TCR competitors will receive an IHRA competition license, and medical insurance coverage.  The racing will be in a bracket race format and the car/truck must run 10 seconds or slower in the 1/8th mile. Competitors can also compete in the Jr Dragster class but not any other class.

We will run this class on select Saturday nights and it will replace the High School class in 2017. Cost to enter is just $10 and we will have trophies to the winner and runner up. License forms are available at the track or can be downloaded from our website or the IHRA website. Call or email Gerald with any questions at 641-780-3534 or manager@eddyvilleraceway.com.

Dates for 2017:

May 13, 27, June 3, 24, July 22, 29, August 5, September 2.


ERP is looking for a title sponsor for the TCR class. Cost is $1000.

This would allow us to have money for a points fund for the kids competing in the class and the sponsor would receive a ticket package for various events at ERP. Call Gerald at 641-780-3534 or email him at manager@eddyvilleraceway.com if interested or with questions.


Engine Diaper Rule at ERP

Starting in 2017 ERP an oil containment system will be required for race cars. This is something a lot of race tracks have already put in place or will do so in the near future. This will not only help save costly and time consuming oil downs but more importantly could very easily save your race car and your health or even life in case of catastophic engine failure. This is the most common sense rule for drag racing in a long time. Here is the rule we will start using for the 2017 race season:

All cars running 6.99 seconds and quicker will be required to have an approved engine diaper or engine oil containment pan. The following are exceptions to the rule: True street cars with street tires and bikes will be exempt at this time.

Diapers are available from several sources. Dennis Ridgeway Enterprises (DRE) is one source that is offering a 10% discount to ERP racers. They have standard diapers that fit some applications from $169.00 to full custom ones for up to $550.00. They are supporting the track with a sign and will have some giveaways and coupons for their products. They can be reached by phone @ 217-763-6352 or email dennis@enginediapers.com.


ERP Gift Certificates

Gift certificates are available for Christmas. They can be for any amount and can be used for any purpose at ERP in 2017. Please email any requests to manager@eddyvilleraceway.com.


New Top and Mod Points Series Sponsor for 2017

ERP is pleased to announce Karl Performance as the points series sponsor for our Top and Mod classes for 2017.

ERP Track Rentals

Eddyville Raceway Park has days available to rent the facility for many types of usage including the use of the drag strip or for other functions that could make use of the rest of the facility but not the race track. Now is the time to set these up before all of our events are planned. Events using the track in most cases will be on a Friday night, Saturday or Sunday.

If you or a company wants to put on any type of outdoor event that might work at the track or if you would like to be a promoter of some type of race event please contact Gerald to discuss the possibilities. Price to do this will vary widely depending on the type of event you are considering.

Here is a list of some ideas on types of events that could utilize the track and facilities. They include but are certainly not limited to:

  • Swap Meet
  • Flee market
  • Concert
  • Car Show
  • Autocross
  • R/C Car & Plane Events
  • Special race events for company employees / customers
  • Special interest drag race event

We also can put together special packages for family reunions, car clubs, or company outings to the race track during any of our scheduled events both regular race days or on our bigger events. If interested in any of these please email Gerald at manager@eddyvilleraceway.com or call him at 641-780-3534.
