Inyokern Dragstrip started operations on October 24th, 1954, as part of an effort by the local sheriff to move street racing to a safer venue. The then-abandoned naval airstrip, Inyoken Aiport, was selected as the site. The dragstrip ceased operation at the end of 2005 when a local ordinance was passed banning drag racing at airports.
