Ponca City was a 1.5-mile park course that used the roads of Lake Ponca Park in Ponca City, OK. Although the roadways still exist (La Cann Drive and Checkstand Road), they are no longer used for racing.

The Ponca City Grand Prix was held annually on the July 4th weekend from 1961 until the early 1990s. Like its sister park track, Lake Afton, it succumbed to increasing safety standards: contemporary photographs show cars racing past, and occasionally hitting, unprotected trees. Its traditional July 4th weekend date has since been taken by Hallett.
