Castrol Raceway, formerly known as "Capital City Raceway Park", "Capital Raceway", "Labatt Raceway", and "Budweiser Motorsports Park", is a multi-track auto racing facility located just south of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Located on land leased from the Edmonton International Airport, the clay oval opened in 1991 and the dragstrip opened in 1992. The facility went into receivership at the end of the 1997 season. It was purchased by Rob Reeves and ten other local racers and businessmen; it re-opened in 1998. Several of the investors have opted out since 2000 but do remain on as advertising sponsors of the facility. The track is now owned by Rob Reeves and Ron Hodgson.The facility features an 8,500-seat ¼ mile IHRA-sanctioned dragstrip, and a 4,500-seat 3/8 mile clay oval. There is also a pro motocross track, a mini-sprint car track, and a 2.7 km road course which opened in 2013.The biggest event currently held at the facility is on the drag strip. The annual IHRA Rocky Mountain Nationals is the sixth of twelve national IHRA events held in North America. The second largest event at Castrol Raceway was held on the Oval track. The Oil City Cup featured the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series. The World of Outlaws competed in Edmonton from 2007 - 2015.

  • Very basic amenities. Only has porta-potties. No concessions. Temporary bleachers.
  • We spend a lot of time here in the summer and the events are great. They are in desperate need of a facility upgrade though. The bathrooms at the main building are awful.
  • The one and only spot for legal drag racing in Edmonton, show up most summer friday nights for Street Legals and run your street car or daily commuter for kicks.
  • Love the dirt track♥️♥️🍁🍁
  • Friday noght street legals are super fun
