Historical Note

The 1/4 mile dragstrip opened in 1988. The 3/8 mile dirt oval opened on April 7th, 2000. The facility was used for parking flood cars for insurance companies after Hurricane Harvey, and the oval does not appear to have been returned to service after that.

The track operated as Royal Purple Raceway from 2011 until sometime around 2018.
