North Star Dragway was originally opened in 1995, as I-35 North Texas Dragway. Over the past 17 years, the track has undergone significant changes. In the early 2000's, the track was lengthened by over 800 feet, making the longest, all concrete, 1/8th mile tracks in Texas. Also around that time, the brand new timing tower, concession stand, and bathrooms were constructed, as well as the addition of an 100,000 sq. ft. of asphalt parking. That gave North Star Dragway over 300,000 sq. ft. of asphalt parking and a 2300 ft. race track, with over 1500 ft. of concrete racing surface.
