Renegade Raceway is my favorite racetrack in Washington state. Derek and Sarah run the track, and they’re an excellent team. They’re also great friends of mine!
The raceway is a top-notch facility and even undergoes improvements each year. For instance, there are upgrades like new landscaping, and the track often gets a fresh coat of concrete.
Renegade Raceway caters to a wide variety of racers. These include DTP Race Wars, jet cars, wheel standers, funny cars, and weekend racers.
There’s a concession stand available, bleachers, and excellent announcing over the PA system! And you’ll find plenty of free parking close to the bleachers too.
It’s a scenic drive from the Tri-Cities up the Yakima valley, taking in all the great sites. I like to stop off at some of the wineries after the race. And the track is pretty close to Mt. Rainier, too, if you’d like to make a weekend vacation out of it. (My wife and I often do!)
At Renegade, you’ll get to watch high-performance, fast, awesome nostalgic cars. You’ll have to pay for entry to be a spectator or a racer. But the prices are very fair! I recommend this track over any other raceway because it’s just more fun and run so well by Derek and Sarah.
Check out the raceway’s preliminary schedule below. We’re there almost every event, so please stop by and say hello if you see us!
Renegade Raceway is located at 1395 N Track Road in Wapato, Washington. You’ll find the track between I-82 and Highway 97.
