Mission Raceway Park, also known as MRP, is an auto racing facility located in Mission, British Columbia, Canada. The facility features a ¼ mile NHRA-sanctioned dragstrip, a 2km 9-turn road course, and a 3km motocross track. It is owned and operated by the B.C. Custom Car Association, and the BCCCA operates the drag strip directly. The road course and motocross tracks are operated independently by the Sports Car Club of British Columbia (SCCBC) and the Lower Mainland Motocross Club (LMMC) respectively.Drag Strip HistoryThe BCCCA originally drag raced on unused runways at Abbotsford Airport from 1952 to 1957. The original Mission Raceway Park opened in 1965, and the facility operated until 1978 (a motocross track was added in 1973). However, MRP was shut down when the District of Mission wanted to establish an industrial park on the site. After years of negotiating and legal wrangling, the new MRP was opened on March 14th, 1992, on land near the Fraser River. The drag strip was awarded a National Open by the NHRA in 1993.MRP won the NHRA Division 6 Track Of The Year Award five years in a row, from 1994 to 1998. It then won the same award three years in a row from 2005 to 2007.Road Course HistoryThe SCCBC originally road raced on unused runways at Abbotsford Airport. In 1958, the SCCBC opened the Westwood Racing Circuit, which operated until the club lost their lease in 1990. The SCCBC worked out an arrangement with the BCCCA, and in 1992 opened the River’s Edge Road Course at Mission Raceway Park. The road course was used for driver training classes during the first two years, and began full road racing operations in 1994.

  • Great place to see and watch some amazing cars race. Tons of parking and lots of seating. Great to walk thru the pit area 
  • This raceway is set up and organized extremely well. Cars are lined up and ready to race. The jet cars and wheel standers are my favourite. The night races are exceptional. Great place to spend the da...  read more »
  • My son is a drag racer and we've had the opportunity to visit this race track on a few occasions. It's a fun place. Good food vendors (or a racetrack) and there is lots of room for parking. Bleachers ...  read more »
  • Saw dragster racing here and it was fantastic. There was a really friendly atmosphere and everyone was willing to answer questions. We got great pictures. *Make sure you take ear protection*.
  • looks like this place is loosing money because they cannot even keep up with maintaining their tracks. I took my V8 once to go around the track (drop in) and guess what i need to be part of some club (pay for it), then that club will have event (pay to participate) and of course there will be some added cost as well (track insurance, brakes, tires). No way! so basically i will be spending close to a grand just to go around the track (no race). Crap!
  • The grand stands are pretty run down. Public washrooms are good tho.
  • Great time for all ages, can walk around the pits to see the cars close up, food on property, souvenir shop, clean washrooms...people also need to remember that the road race is separate from the 1/4 mile racing portion, they rent that area off the track, so when you post a review about Mission raceway don't include the road race & how they operate in that...
  • The road course isn't very big but you get really good at braking
