This auto racing facility has gone through many changes since opening in 1968. Currently there are two dirt oval tracks, a 7/16 mile and a 1/5 mile.
The 7/16 mile track was built in 1972. In 1989, it was paved and hosted four NASCAR Busch Series races from 1989-92. The track surface switched back to dirt in 1998.
The 1/5 mile track built in 2005 is used for kart racing. A 3/8 mile track that surrounded the 1/5 mile track no longer exists. It had a dirt surface from 1993-97 and was paved from 1998-2005.
Today, the larger track is used by several classes of stock cars on Saturday nights. It also hosts several touring sprint car, modified, and late model series events each year.
