The ADRL event takes place on June 1-2 as part of the grand re-opening of Gateway Motorsports Park.
DoubleTree Hilton Collinsville-St. Louis will be partnering with the ADRL as the worldâ€™s premier eighth-mile drag racing league makes its much-anticipated return to its home track in St. Louis.
The partnership will allow fans and race teams the opportunity to stay at a premier hotel that is located less than 10 miles from Gateway Motorsports Park.
Annually recognized as one of the premier hotels in the area, the DoubleTree Hilton Collinsville/St. Louis serves as a luxurious destination for ADRL teams, fans and sponsors.

â€œThis is the closest full-service hotel to the track on the Illinois side and there are a number of great features to the hotel, including our huge parking lot that has more than 550 parking spaces. Weâ€™ve got our wonderful Porterâ€™s Steakhouse as well, and we are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.â€
The recently-updated hotel also offers a variety of first-class amenities, including an indoor pool, fitness center, spacious and modern rooms, and superior hotel full-service dining, as well as close proximity to a number of area attractions in the St. Louis area.
As part of Lodging Hospitality Management, two sister hotels to DoubleTree by Hilton Collinsville-St. Louis â€“ Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark and Four Points by Sheraton at Fairview Heights â€“ are also working with the ADRL to provide extra accommodations for race teams and fans.
