Built in the late 1970s, the State Capitol Raceway in Port Allen is a 1/4 mile drag strip with IHRA Drag Racing sanctioning.

Races are scheduled throughout the year, including the Test-N-Tune, Cajun Super Series, and Ironman Classic events.

The raceway is renowned for hosting the Mardi Gras Nitro Jam annually in March.

Likewise, State Capitol has become a staple among race fans in Plantation Country, and was even seen in the popular 2005 film "the Dukes of Hazzard."
