Historical Note

The clay oval was built in 1991, and originally called Capital City Raceway Park. The dragstrip opened on August 23rd, 1992. By 1997, the facility was in receivership, and was acquired by a group of businessmen, reorganized and brought back into use in 1998 under the name "Labatt Raceway". In 2000, two of the partners bought out the others, and the name changed to Budweiser Motorsports Park.
