This 5/8 mile high banked oval track is one of the fastest dirt tracks in the country. It opened in 1985, and has had a few periods of inactivity over it's history. In recent years, it has only held special events.
Plans for the track to reopen full time in 2010 are in place after a new promotion group was formed. The regular program will consist of late models and modifieds.
Instead of using a water truck to prep the track, it has sprinkler heads mounted along the outside walls. Fans have the option of sitting in permanent bleachers along the back stretch or on a large steep hill along the front stretch.
