Minnesota State Fair Speedway

Auto races were held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds from 1902-2002. The final race on September 2, 2002 was held 25 days before the 100th anniversary of the fairgrounds first race.

Cars originally raced on a one mile dirt oval horse racing track until 1939. In 1940, a smaller half mile dirt oval track was created. The track was paved in 1964. A portion of the racing surface was removed in 2003 proving that auto racing at the fairgrounds is a thing of the past.
