Kansas City is undeniably a sports city. And while you’re in Overland Park, you’ll be a short drive away from a number of stadiums and sports-related attractions, giving you plenty of opportunities to get in the middle of the action.
If you’re feeling the need for speed, then start your engines and head over to the Kansas Speedway nearby in Kansas City, Kan. Neighboring both Sporting KC and KC Monarchs, the three professional destinations are next to the Legends Shopping district for all your retail needs before the race.
The Kansas Speedway broke ground in May 1999 and the inaugural race of the ARCA RE/MAX (now ARCA Menards Series) began in June of 2001. The Speedway hosts the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the Indy Racing League, as well as multiple concerts and the American Royal over the years.
Bordering the Speedway with a great view of the races is Hollywood Casino. In 2022, the state of Kansas passed a law and legalized sports betting and Hollywood Casino has designated a new sportsbook section for all your sports betting needs.
Start your engines and take the short drive to the Kansas Speedway and stay in Overland Park!
If you can’t make it to a race while in Overland Park, be sure to watch it at one of the local sports bars in OP!
