This list was compiled by Bret Kepner on a local board and I think it would be useful to have here. It is an older list so some of the tracks may not exist anymore.

Admins: Please make this a "sticky".


Listed below are the TRUE altitudes (in feet above sea level) of all dragstrips in Missouri and bordering states which are within range of the members of this board. Each listing includes the location followed by the track name (with "raceway" or "dragway" omitted for lack of redundancy). These altitudes have been researched by ME on US Geological Survey maps and will most likely differ from those listed by other sources. However, rest assured THESE are the correct elevations.
