In the summer of 1995, a couple from a small town in eastern Iowa began a search for land with the dream of building their own drag strip. Later that year, the dream came one step closer to a reality. Reid and Jane Kuhlman purchased a section of land along the east-bound lane of Highway 20, just south of the small town of Earlville, Iowa.
That began as common farm ground, has been transformed into one of the Midwest's premier motorsports facilities, attracting racers on a weekly basis, from Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota as well as throughout the state of Iowa.
The future looks as bright as our first two years in business, with a growing number of weekly racers, our NHRA Divisional Points Series Race, and numerous special events. We are committed to each and every racer and race fan, to make their visit to Tri State Raceway an enjoyable one. This track was built by racers...for racers.
