Gateway Motorsports Park to Host NASCAR Event
20 Dec, 2013
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to St. Louis for the first time under the new track ownership in a 160 lap, 200 mile event that will be contested under the lights on the 1.25 mile oval. The truck series is NASCAR’s most competitive series and, if past Gateway events are any indication, fans can expect side-by-side racing from start to finish.
The United States Auto Club (USAC) Silver Crown Series returns for the second running of the Gateway 100 earlier in the day. In 2013, Bobby Santos took the event win in a race that produced a record number of lead changes, speeds and a three-wide photo finish. Many USAC drivers, car owners, fans and historians are calling it one of the greatest Silver Crown races ever contested.
Located just five minutes from downtown St. Louis and covering 200 acres of prime real-estate, Gateways MSP is the largest outdoor entertainment facility in the region, encompassing a ¼ mile NHRA-sectioned drag strip, 1.25 mile NASCAR oval track, 1.6 mile road course, a new Gateway Karting facility and a new 14-acre off road course.
