Hennessey Performance Selling Its Texas Dragstrip For $2.7M

Hennessey Performance Engineering – maker of some of the highest-performance Ford Mustangs and F-150s available – has listed its quarter-mile dragstrip at the Lonestar Motorsports Park for sale for a mere $2.7 million.

The dragstrip sits on a piece of land adjacent to Hennessey Performance’s development facility in Sealy, Texas, although the development facility is not for sale. According to Motor Trend, the sale will include a stipulation that Hennessey Performance Engineering be allowed to continue using the Lonestar dragstrip for vehicle testing.

The $2.7 million price tag covers a 55-acre facility with an IHRA-sanctioned quarter-mile strip, air-conditioned concession stands, grand stands with an 800-spectator capacity, staging lanes, a control tower, lights, timing equipment, a fuel barn, and more. For an additional cost, the buyer can also purchase 70 extra acres of land, perfect for building a road course, according to the listing.

Motor Trend reports that Hennessey Performance is attempting to expand production from its current 400 units per year, to about 1,000. The sale of the Lonestar Motorsports Park dragstrip might be partly motivated by that goal.

“This is purely a smart real-estate move,” said Hennessey Performance Engineering Founder and President John Hennessey. “If it sells for what we ask, great. If no one buys it, we might end up just keeping it.”
