There's a both a public discussion Facebook group, and an official Facebook page too. I can't link from this device though, but they both come up searching for "sage raceway". Take all this with a grain of salt, but this is what's being talked about:
-My understanding it it's 1/8th mile, not 1/4 mile, at least for now.
-Target date of July - no specifics given
-Fri-Sat-Sun racing, with race entry fees ranging from $35-50 depending on whether it's test and tune or formal competition. Spectator fee looks to be $10.

I'm pretty excited about this. I took the drag radials off my car when I moved here 8 years ago from Bremerton, WA, and didn't think I'd ever get to use them again. It is a little worrying that the once very active owner hasn't updated the facebook page since January.

Looks like the first races have been pushed back until late August.

Very upbeat post from July 16th.
Good morning racers and race fans of East Idaho. Once again we have to put off opening for races. Grass just got put in so we have to stay off of it for minimum of 30 days, watering and so on. I did tell Derrick we would run some cars on the 25th but now that is not possible. On a good note, we are in the process of obtaining Douglas, Wyomings scoreboards, they closed down last year, city owned property and too many complaints about noise. It may look like things are not happening, but believe me they are. Bleachers being built, sealing starting line area, timing shacks being fitted, still some dirt filling to do, our drain pond being dug and we acquired some freeway barrier type tubs for water or sand at the end of the track, for throttle stuck type incidents or run-a-ways. Right now it looks like the end of July or August for running cars. We acquired a Mobile Canteen trailer for our concessions, we are also putting together a Sage Saloon Trailer for sale of Brewskies, Soda Pop and water. Well thats about it for now so please be patient and we will keep you posted. Terry Ray

We've yet to experience this local gem, perhaps it should be on this Summer's bucket list??

That appears be the legal address. That is not where the track is though. The track is at 45w and w 89 north, which is on the west side of the interstate.
