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.Using our custom trip planner, Nisku attractions like Castrol Raceway can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
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 NHRA Mopar Rocky Mountain Nationals is the largest national event held in Canada. 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 from 2007 to 2015.

Such trickery! Left work Monday and headed out with the family at 6pm from W. Edm. Waited on the highway in a line up before getting into the entrance. Once in was herded into a line up with numerous.... more »

Too widely spread out to enjoy the overall effect. It is not worth the money you pay to drive through. I love all Christmas lights and displays; however, this was a total disappointment. Although... more »
I recommend Castrol Raceway, Leduc County, Alberta. A fun family day well spent, All stars. Photography is as much about the process of seeing as the print you produce. The love of photography is the love of life. Learn how the principles of photography can teach you about seeing your life in a different light.
Came here with my family for our first ever monster truck show. Wow it was amazing. My son was in awe when he stood beside all the trucks. Both the truck drivers and motorcyclist did an amazing job and put on a great show. I wish we didnt live so far away or this is a place we would likely visit more, especially after reading about the Christmas lights display. Thank you for an awesome experience
Came down for the 2km light show. Definitely the pass that gets you to the front of the line is well worth it. In and out in 40 minutes. Line ups look like an hour or more to get in. Nice display and well organized.
"Christmas Light Show" Was great! Lots of lights, daughter loved it. I expected the traffic and congestion, didn't bother me. Will for sure go again next year.
Went to see the Christmas lights set up they had. Very well done and put together! Reminded me of going to Bright Lights in Hawrleak Park when I was a kid. A good holiday outing for families, couples or friends. Try to go with a car full!
