A Commitment To Race Fans
September 8, 2011

Retired racecar driver and real estate developer Curtis Francois announced the re-opening of the 160-acre facility for the 2012 racing season while plans were underway for the revitalization and purchase.

With one of the largest racing schedules in the track’s history, Francois renamed and rebranded the park Gateway Motorsports Park (Gateway MSP) to better reflect the diverse motorsports events and activities planned for the future.

An important key to reopening Gateway was the commitment to drag racing and the partnership with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). Francois inked a long-term deal with the NHRA starting with a signature event September 28-30, 2012.

“Thanks to the grassroots motorsports fans across the country, this event was the most successful NHRA event in track history, setting attendance and track speed records,” said Francois.
