Kroger SpeedFest features three nights of exciting racing on the lightning fast IRP oval.

On Thursday August 4th the stars of the USAC Silver Crown Series will take to the track in the J. D. Byrider 100. Past winners of this exciting open wheel race include A. J. Foyt, Tony Stewart, and last season's winner, Jay Drake. On Friday, the Power Stroke Diesel 200, featuring the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will bump and bang all the way to victory lane. The weekend concludes with the 24th annual Kroger 200, NASCAR Busch Series race. Past winners have included Brian Vickers, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and last years champion Kyle Busch.

One of five drag racing facilities owned and operated by the National Hot Rod Association, IRP was built in 1960 and has presented organized racing events since 1961. From March through October, the facility hosts more than 120 dates of racing on three tracks, a quarter-mile drag strip, a .686-mile paved oval and a 2.5-mile road course. Home to drag racing's biggest event, the NHRA U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend, the drag strip runs more than 50 days of point-to-point action, from national events to street legal community programs. The oval track draws racing's biggest events, including annual visits from the NASCAR Busch Series, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and three USAC races, including the 60th Annual Night Before the 500. The road course provides a home for several racing sanctions, such as SCCA, while providing an ideal resource for driving schools, corporate outings and open-road tests for professional drivers.
