Today, Pacific Raceways is home to the NHRA Northwest Nationals – the largest motorsports event in the Northwest and one of only 24 national events, with stars such as John Force, Tony Schumacher, Courtney Force, Greg Anderson, and Erica Enders, to name a few. The NHRA Lucas Oil Division Six Drag Racing Series – featuring the best sportsman racers in the Northwest – also anchors the drag schedule.

The backbone of drag racing at Pacific Raceways is the weekly racers who compete in the Swift Tool Drag Race Series – part of the Summit ET Bracket Series – and specialty events scheduled from April to October. The EF-65 Junior Dragster Series – for kids 8-17 – is a starting point for many racers. Pacific Raceways’ High School Drags is one of the largest events of its kind.

Local racers, who got their drag racing start at Pacific Raceways, are some of the most successful sportsman racers in the country. Racers such as Jody and Toby Lang, Mark Faul, Brad Plourd, and Mike Ferderer call Pacific Raceways home.
