The former Spokane County Raceway has a new owner and a new name: the Kalispel Tribe of Indians introduces Qlispé Raceway Park (QRP).


Qlispé Raceway Park will have a limited schedule of racing beginning April 2022. Then strap in for a full season of drag-strip and road-course races in 2023, with the return of Top Fuel/Top Alcohol Dragsters, Nitro/Blown Alcohol Funny Cars, Jet Cars and Wheel-standers. Follow our Facebook page for news on partnership events coming to QRP.

Qlispé (kuh-lee-SPEH) is the international phonetic-alphabet spelling of the Kalispel name and the original way tribal members pronounced it. It translates to the “Camas people,” referring to the beautiful purple flowers that grow along the Pend Oreille River. The bulbs of the camas plant were harvested in spring, dried, and then consumed as an important source of protein in winter, when fish and game were difficult to find.


Racers have experienced the joy of competition at this raceway track near Spokane, WA, for nearly 50 years. It’s time to start your engines once again.
