Beacon Dragway


Beacon Dragway is a 1/8 mile track located in Paducah, Kentucky that originally started as McCracken County Dragstrip in the 1960's and then transformed into a private airport. Beacon Dragway has now emerged with a safe environment for adrenaline-filled racing for the racer as well as a fun-filled entertainment for families, friends and the everyday drag racing enthusiast.

Beacon Dragway classes include Super Pro, Pro, Footbrake, Trophy, Motorcycle and Junior Dragsters. The drag strip features a 36 foot wide and 170 foot long concrete burnout and launch pad, and a state of the art timing system with scoreboards and illuminated towers. Other features include extensive parking with shop rentals, cafe, beer garden, VIP suites and nearby campgrounds.
