Maple Grove Raceway is a quarter-mile dragstrip located near Mohnton, Pennsylvania, just outside Reading. It opened in 1962 as a 1/5-mile dragstrip. It was eventually lengthened to its current quarter-mile length in 1964. The track has been sanctioned by the National Hot Rod Association for most of its existence. It has hosted an NHRA national event since 1985. Uni-Select Auto Plus came aboard as the Nationals sponsor in 2011. Other key events include the American Drag Racing League, the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, the Geezers Reunion at The Grove, the Super Chevy Show, Mopar Action, Fun Ford Weekend and the NHRA Pennsylvania Dutch Classic.

Local drag racers can compete in the Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail, a points program that crowns champions in Super, Pro, Street and Top Bike eliminators. Younger racers, ages 8–17, can compete in the Junior Drag Racing League. Both programs have been successful on a national basis; drivers from the Money Trail program have won 13 Summit Racing Series Northeast Division ET Finals, while the Juniors have won four NHRA Eastern Conference championships.

  • 🏁Went to the Glory Days event today at Maple Grove. It was a hot one today at the grove, but nevertheless the turnout and variety of classes was an exciting show! I went with a friend, he had is car is the car show which was another cool side show of this race day lineup. My buddy actually was one of the lucky winners out of the large turnout! He received a dash plaque, a Wally, and two tickets to September NHRA event; how cool. Maple Grove memories that last a lifetime.
  • Awesome venue for drag Racing. Open pits all day. Racers very friendly and sign things between heats. Track holds open before race which help newbies learn the place. Great facilities include many food options and clean porta John's. Crowds come out when the gates are open. Highly recommend.
