The third-mile asphalt oval facility is renowned across the nation as a leader in the short track racing field. Frequently, it is rated by visitors and race industry professionals as one of the top five short tracks in the United States.
Beech Ridge is one of only 80 short tracks in the country distinctive enough to earn NASCAR's sanctioning rights. NASCAR--the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing--sanctions all of the Speedway's Saturday night Weekly Racing Series events. Beech Ridge offers four fast race divisions: NASCAR Pro Series; Sport Series; Wildcats and Road Runners.
