A Racer’s Dream: Buy Your Own Dragstrip In Wisconsin

Everybody has a fantasy about what they would do if they won millions of dollars in the lottery, for some they would travel the world, racers on the other hand would find a way to spend it on new ways to go fast. If you wanted to chew through that cash in a hurry, you could buy a racing facility like Wisconsin International Raceway (WIR) that’s currently for sale.

If you’re going to purchase a drag strip it doesn’t hurt to find one that’s got a little bit of history behind it. WIR first swung its gates open in 1964 in rural Kaukauna, Wisconsin for racers and fans to enjoy. The drag strip is a quarter-mile IHRA sanctioned track that holds regular bracket races almost every weekend. Special events have also been a part of the drag racing program at WIR with jet dragsters, nostalgia racing, and much more. There’s seating for over 4,500 fans, so you could pack plenty of people in to put on some great shows.

What makes WIR cool is the fact that it’s a multi-use facility for anything with an engine. Next door to the drag strip, you’ll find a ¼-mile and 1/2-mile oval track that can host all kinds of events. There’s also plenty of parking and pit space for all the tracks across the property. To assist with track operation, WIR has a multitude of buildings for equipment and supplies as well.

So, you want to get into the track ownership game and WIR has caught your eye? For just over 11 million dollars this facility can be yours! Check out the full listing right here to see all of the details about this historic facility.
