Wilmot Raceway

Located at the Kenosha County Fairgrounds, this 1/3 mile clay oval track opened in 1974. It replaced the Kenosha County Speedway, which was located behind the nearby high school and operated from 1948-73.

Before 2009, this was known as the Wilmot Speedway. The name change came after the fair board evicted the previous promoters, who laid claim to the old name.

Sprint cars, mini-sprints, and street stock cars race here on Saturday nights. Modifieds are also regularly in attendance, but they seldom complete two consecutive laps without bringing out a yellow flag, making it impossible to consider them a legitimate group of racers.

Special events include IRA sprint cars, Badger midgets, and late models. The track is also used during the county fair for truck and tractor pulls and demolition derbies.

The new track opened for business in 1973, not 1974.
