Sorry but onroad died about the time the sedans got upwards of $450 = 1/8 offroad buggies and truggies. The only place you can run onroad still (excellent facility I might add) is in Enid, OK. Enid is about 2 hours south of Wichita. Guess you could go north to Blue Springs, MO (Kansas City), they have a huge outdoor asphalt track and an indoor carpet track. I think Topeka, KS has some outdoor onroad racing going on too.

For indoor racing you have Hutchinson that is 45 min north/west, place is called HP Hobbies. They have an indoor offroad and dirt oval track. Or you can go south to Enid, they have onroad concrete/asphalt covering, small 1/18 scale dirt oval track or the indoor offroad track.

Not much going on around Wichita unless you are into 1/8 offroad racing. If you like any other form of racing plan on traveling 2+ hours.
