Possibly developed as an emergency field dating to the 1930s, but it was not until the United States entered World War II that the airfield was developed. Kahuku Army Airfield was classified as an auxiliary field and had a very short life span, from 1942 until it was closed in the late 1940s

The airfield’s runway later became a place where drag races were held. Races were held from 1954-1964. Did any retirees attend or race there?  More on drag racing in Hawaii.
