Laguna Seca opened on November 9th, 1957. In its original form, it was 1.9 miles long. It was extended slightly in 1963 to 2.14 miles. In late 1988, a new section was added to bring the length to 2.214 miles. Between the 1995 and 1996 seasons, revisions were made to the course in the vicinity of the pits to support the increased sizes of the fields in the Indycar race.

This map shows Laguna Seca as of 1995; the pit area is being revised to provide more room beginning with the 1996 season. Note that the section from Turn 2 to Turn 5 is relatively new; previously the track went straight from 2 to 5, and the current 3 and 4 did not exist.
This map shows the track circa 1963 in its original configuration. This map is rotated about 90 degrees clockwise from the map above; the new 2-3-4 complex was grafted in between the old turns 2 and 3.
