Kil-Kare Raceway is currently in the process of multiple improvement projects. Kil-Kare’s capital improvement project include the resurfacing of the full quarter mile competition surface plus 100 feet past the finish line concrete a total of 1,593 feet 6” thick, 61.5’ wide 4000 psi, poured barrier walls that replace the old guardrails the entire distance to the new turn around lane. Safety nets at the end of the track to stop anyone from going into the little Miami river, and the straightening of the return road at the end of the track, which is being widened as well where the old track narrowed towards the end the new track will stay the same width all the way through the sand trap, with a larger turning radius leading to the new return road as well as the reconstruction of the west entrance, the old main entrance which will eliminate circling of spectators “around the world” as we called it last year. This next to Bud Carmichael’s Kil-Kare Auto Salvage entrance which will lead to a large radius curve just past the bike path which will open into three lanes to keep traffic off of Dayton-Xenia rd, making it safer for Racers, spectators, and the neighbors who are trying to get home on event days. There will also be a large radius added to the road which leads to the new staging lanes, as racers remember was a congested tight area which will be opened up with the addition of more asphalt.
Kil-Kare Raceway's Dragstrip renovation project is nearing completion. To ensure the best possible racing surface, Kil-Kare Raceway will do additional finishing work to the new surface. The additional work will delay the opening of the Dragstrip into June. Once the Dragstrip is ready for operation Kil-Kare will hold a Test and Tune on the first Saturday, for everyone to come and try out the new track prior to competition. Points start date will be updated as we get closer to opening. It is Kil-Kare's intention to have the best racing surface available to our customers when we open the facility for competiton. Again we thank all of our fans, racers, and sponsors for their continued patience as we approach the end of the renovation process.
