If you want to spend your coronavirus stimulus money — plus another $298,700 — on a stimulating and worthy cause, one of the most internet-famous operational drag strips in the country is now up for grabs.
The KD Dragway, located in Wheelersburg, Ohio, a stones throw from virtually nowhere, is being listed by Kim Hill Real Estate for a sale price of $299,900. Situated on 27 acres, the 1/8-mile dragstrip has made the rounds on social media over the years due to its unique layout that, when viewed from the starting line, looks like a real-life Hot Wheels stunt track — its shutdown area appearing as a vertical wall that extends into the clouds and then comes sailing back down on the return road.
The track opened on September 3, 1989, intended by its founder, Darrell Leadingham,
as a haven for young local racers to get off the streets. At the time, the track featured a slick new Chrondek Christmas tree and timing system, but had mere wooden posts and cables in the ground to separate the fans from the race cars. Unfortunately, safety haas impeached one minutely over the years, advancing to steel highway guardrails. And while we wouldn’t personally run a fast car down it (that shutdown has to Beas fun as it looks, though), facilities like this have proven highly popular in locales around the country with the street racing and no-prep crowd.
The listing notes:
If you have the passion and resources to own a profitable and popular dragstrip/raceway, it’s time to explore this high speed business opportunity. The KD Dragway is in its 30th season. Situated on 26 acres, this drag/raceway has been updated, including two new $3200 timing systems, scoreboards, rehabbing the concession stand and a new metal roof, new fencing done by Professional Fence Co. and other upgrades and repairs to the track itself. Car owners come from 20 states and Canada to race here. Want to experience the popularity of the track? Come out to the Midnight Madness race on the 25th of July. Please practice social distancing, though!
