The Cedar Falls Raceway is located in the quaint town of Iowa Falls, smack in the middle of Iowa farm country. This legendary raceway was originally constructed in the 1960s and sanctioned as a member of the American Hot Rod Association. During the 1980s, the Raceway switched affiliations, becoming a member track of the National Hot Rod Association. Still the most thrilling ¼ mile in the whole state, today, the Cedar Falls Raceway has been renamed the Cedar Falls Motorsports Park and is now a member track of the International Hot Rod Association.
