Once a week in 1955, Ontario's Kohler Airstrip welcomed dragsters to share its smooth surfaces with airplanes before giving way completely to the popular racing vehicles in the '60s. The former airstrip became Cayuga Dragway Park, and in 1992, it went on to host the first IHRA (International Hot Rod Association) national event outside of the United States. The venue, with its approximately 1,280-metre drag strip, eventually became known as Toronto Motorsports Park in 2001a place for amateur racers to compete, practice, engage in instructional programs, and craft aerodynamic fuzzy dice.
Today the dragway both educates and entertains the motorsports community, regularly holding massive events featuring professionally modified vehicles, including motorcycles and gas-powered sleds, and legendary drivers. Amateurs still get plenty of track time to try out new vehicles with the Test & Tune Program and race custom rides in the Bracket Series. When race aficionados aren't watching smoke billow from behind the dragsters or cheering on their favourite brand of motor oil, they can relax in track-side campsites or head to the Black Cat Pub for a beer and a snack.
