    Aruba Raceway

    Can anyone tell me exactly where the drag race track is?

    you you are right rumpire.
    i was trying to get in a little closer, but your map is better.
    we had been out there once a couple of years ago...a friend was catering one of the races.
    we are not race fans, but wow...many arubans are!!!

    We race here in NH and a friend from MA was invited to race ( I think this weekend) in Aruba. I would love to check out the track next month when I'm there.

    I have heard that a plane once landed there on the dragway thinking it was the runway at Queen Beatrix airport.

    Found it:

    Interesting (slightly OT), but I saw a Nissan Skyline every hour in Aruba. The type with the steering on the wrong side.

    But yes, I think the strip is somewhat close to the jail.

    Are you planning to race? Good luck!
