RT 66 is about 30 minutes from my house, but they have not reopened after Covid for bracket racing.

US 41 is about an hour and is now home.

Coles County is roughly 3 hours south. I try to get there once or twice a year.

Byron, Cordova, Union Grove,and Martin are all also around 3 hours, but I haven't been to any of them for years.

From '94 through 2000 in NorCal, it was about an hour to either of 2 tracks, Sac or Sears Point.
Usually 1.5 hours from my current place to Spokane, if traffic is decent.
But towing through Spokane kinda sucks.
I'm in the middle of relocating to about 20-30 minutes from Firebird (Boise area).

Same here, I don't live too far from Jeff. I like the full quarter mile best, so usually it's the Rock or Brainerd. But I probably put a lot more passes in at out of town tracks for events like F.A.S.T and Drag Week. Which is fine with me, I've always had ramblin' fever.

Closest (Darlington) is about 40 minutes away. Rockingham and Fayetteville are about an hour and 15 minutes away. Those are the closest 1/4 mile tracks.
There are a bunch of 1/8 mile tracks in the 40 minutes to an hour and a half drive range.

LVMS is 22 miles from my house each way. Dont ask after that, next closest is 300 miles away. Then 350 and next would be 620 and it goes up from there. Just drove home from Indy straight through, was 1782 miles one way...

137 miles to Infineon, I’ve made that trek quite often. Those and Kingdon Drag Strip at 111 miles are my immediate choices.

Gateway aka WWT/World Wide Technology raceway or Bonne Terre raceway.
