Ozarks International Raceway is a 3.97 miles state-of-the-art facility at the heart of the Ozarks. The Missouri-based international track has several layouts, but the longest configuration truly shows what this facility is about with its 19 thrilling corners and a 150 feet elevation difference throughout the lap and 1200 feet elevation change over a single lap.
The other configurations include an outside track of 2.5 miles course and an inside track of 1.4-mile track. These are ideal for Racing Schools or clients renting the track for their events.
The goal of this track was to provide a safe and fun place to racing enthusiasts, all the while preserving nature around. The Ozarks being a mountainous region, the primary architect of this layout was the lay of the land, paired with Jr Pesek’s vision and Multimatic’s knowledge; this new facility quickly attracted the attention of the biggest series in North America.
With the Race Control built to modern standards and a turkey barn turned into a 60-car garage, OIR’s facilities cater to the highest motorsports series standards in North America. The track’s five-year plan is to have IndyCar, NASCAR, IMSA and SRO amongst its visitors.
Jr Pesek’s vision was to build a world-class facility that could easily be a destination for the whole family. OIR is 2 hours from Kansas City and 3 hours from Saint-Louis. Just a few miles from the track, teams, clients and partners can lodge at the luxurious resort of the Four Seasons hotel, one of the many up-scale resorts in the area, or in Osage Beach, where you can find countless shops, hotels, restaurants, golf courses, vineyards, etc.
Aside from being an excellent venue for spectators, OIR will be a 654-acres playground for thrill-seeking enthusiasts. Over the next few years, the track will have; a rally and off-road course, condos, team houses and cabins, a clubhouse, a drift pad and a Racing School.
The goal of the Racing School is to be the stepping stone to PF Racing, a premier Endurance Team competing in IMSA and occasionally SRO, and create a ladder system from motorsports entry into top-level GT4 and GT3 endurance racing in North America.
