Just a stone’s throw from Downtown St. Louis sits World Wide Technology Raceway, which has become a tourism mecca over the last eleven years. This facility hosts a NASCAR Cup Series Race, a NASCAR Truck Series Race, INDYCAR, and an NHRA event – making WWT Raceway the only facility in the ENTIRE country to host all four major racing events in the same year.
During the Cup Series Race in June of 2022, the track played host to over 100,000 visitors in one weekend alone! For the rest of 2022 they will be the site of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 on August 19-20, which is the 6th time that INDYCAR will be competing at the venue. WWT Raceway also has NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series on the docket for September 30th through October 2nd.
WWT Raceway Owner Curtis Francois also has other attractions on this 700-acre venue including the Gateway Kartplex, which is great for group and corporate events. These are not your average go-karts, as they can reach up to 55 miles an hour! Many people do not realize that Gateway National Golf Links is also owned by Francois, and it has very reasonable rates with a FANTASTIC view of the Arch right across the river. If you have not been to this side of the river in a while, we HIGHLY recommend a trip to WWT Raceway.
