SOME INFO :

 

Pacific Raceways is a mixed-use road racing and drag racing facility near Kent, Washington. The race track was constructed in 1959 and opened in 1960. The track was originally named Pacific Raceways, then became known as Seattle International Raceways in 1969. After the landowner regained control of the track in 2002, the name reverted to Pacific Raceway.

 

Pacific Raceways features a 2.25 miles (3.62 km) road course which is used by the SCCA,[4] Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts (SOVREN), and ICSCC for automobile road racing. The Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Association (WMRRA) uses the course for motorcycle road racing.[5] The course has more than 125 feet (38 m) of elevation change and a beautiful naturally wooded back section.
