Bremerton Raceway is a multi use facility using an inactive runway at Bremerton National Airport (once known as Kitsap County Airport), near Port Orchard, Washington. Uses include a 1/4 mile NHRA dragstrip, SCCA Solo II (Autocross), and occasional SCCA Road races.
It is expected that this facility will shut down sometime in the near future. The Bremerton MotorSports Park corporation (link below) was created in 2002 to operate the current facility and plan for its replacement.
