La Junta Raceway

La Junta Raceway is a short airport course near La Junta in southeastern Colorado. It is part of a municipally-owned airport and has no permanent facilities.

The land in Otero County around La Junta is one of the most intensively and productively cultivated agricultural areas in the United States. Low-salinity irrigation water from the Arkansas River, combined with the unexpectedly high average temperatures (90 degree days are common well into September), allows two and sometimes three crops per year to be grown in this otherwise somewhat arid area. Without the irrigation, the land supports only marginal cattle grazing.
