This high-banked 1/3 mile clay oval track was created in 1993 on the site previously occupied by a 1/4 mile race track which dated back to the 1960's. Five divisions of stock cars, modifieds, and Legends race here weekly on Saturday nights. Several national and regional touring series of sprint cars, midgets, and late models hold special events here each year.
On May 20, 2007, the main building behind the seating area was set on fire by arsonists causing $500,000 worth of damage. Fortunately, the track barely missed a beat and reopened weeks later.
In 2009, a 1/5 mile dirt oval was created in the infield for karting and quad races on Tuesday and Friday nights.
In 2010, the track was renamed Beaver Dam Raceway. In recent years, it has gone by the names of Charter Raceway Park and Powercom Raceway Park.
