In April 2011, syndicated radio personality Bubba "the Love Sponge" purchased Ocala Speedway and renamed it after himself. The 3/8 mile D-shaped clay oval track opened in 1952, making it the oldest auto racing track in Florida. It was originally a clay track until it was paved in 1997. The clay surface returned in 2008.
Since Bubba purchased the track, an effort has been made to make it fun for the fans and fair for the drivers. Purse money for the racers is significant, and ladies over 18 wearing Daisy Duke shorts and cowboy boots get in free. (Yee Haw!)
In addition to a handful of special events, several classes of stock cars and modifieds race here on Saturday nights.
