For $800K, You Can Live, Work, And Play At This Dragstrip

Imagine having a dragstrip all your own, to do as you wish — you could keep it all to yourself and run your car up and down it all day long, you could invite your friends, or even invite everybody and throw a drag race. At night, after you’ve gotten your jollies, there’s a place just a few steps from the starting line to lay your head. Across the way, there’s a shop to store your cars and tools with a two-post lift to tweak and tune your machines, and when you need a break, a B.S. session, or a Busch Light, there’s a legit restaurant and bar for you, your buds, or everybody.

If it rains, there’s a jet dryer. If it breaks, there’s a four-wheeler. If you need sticky-icky, there’s a sprayer. And if you wad one up after too many cold ones (we wouldn’t advise this, but they, it’s your place), there’s an ambulance.

Sounds like a drag-racing oasis, doesn’t it?

Well, it exists, and it’s for sale. And the price isn’t entirely out of line.

Sikeston, Missouri’s Jeffers Motorsports Park, previously known as the Sikeston Drag Strip and Sikeston Raceway, is being sold lock, stock, and barrel, ready to open and operate today for an asking price of $799,900. The 660-foot all-concrete track has roughly 1,200-feet of shutdown and concrete walls its entire length. And it comes with everything: a shop and equipment building, a manufactured home is located on the property, timing tower and fully-operational concessions, a safety truck and ambulance, tire-dragger, scraper, a Kubota tractor, complete timing system, grandstands, fire systems, lawn mower, and a long list of other essentials. In all, real estate firm SMG Realty lists $1,017,500 in assets in the sale, and we have it on good authority that the place needs nothing but people and and a manager to host drag racing events right away.

In addition to its bread-and-butter E.T. bracket racing, Sikeston has hosted Pro Mods and other fast heads-up machinery, meaning a solid promoter could turn this into a viable, profitable entertainment destination for gearheads smack dab in between Memphis and St. Louis. While pricey per-acre for rural Missouri, when you consider that many dragstrips far less equipped or turn-key as this one routinely sell into seven figures, this begins to look like a decent deal.
