Auto racing has a rich history in the St. Louis area, and the area has produced some of NASCAR's brightest stars. Now they have a bright new facility to come home to at Gateway International Raceway, part of the Dover Downs Entertainment Inc., family of motorsports facilities.

This season, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will open the track's schedule of major events when the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers Ram Tough 200 presented by Pepsi moves to May 7. The NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Division will be back July 29 for another battle under the lights in the CarQuest Auto Parts 250.

Gateway is equipped to host almost any form of major leage motorsports on its egg-shapped 1.25-mile oval with two unique sets of turns (a tight 1-2 banked at 11 degrees with a sweeping 3-4 that has nine-degree banking), a 1.6-mile road course and a quarter-mile drag strip. Gateway hosts more than 100 events each year on its various venues.

The track is literally in the shadow of the Gateway Arch, and the state-of-the-art facility has made St. Louis one of the nation's top new motorsports cities.
