Delaware International Speedway

Delaware International Speedway


Delmar, Delaware (DE), US
This 1/2 mile dirt oval track is part of a multi-track racing complex that includes other shorter ovals and a dragstrip.

Oval track auto racing here dates back to 1949. The original track (known as Delmar Speedway) was a different 1/2 mile dirt oval, which was paved in 1953. After 1958, oval track racing was absent until a new track was created west of the drag strip in 1965. In 1969, the racers migrated to a new 1/3 mile dirt oval track which was created east of the drag strip. The 1/3 mile track was eventually lengthened to the current 1/2 mile oval used today.

The racing complex was named the 8th most visited tourist attraction in the state.
