Medicine Hat Speedway is a 3/10 mile paved oval located to the northwest of Medicine Hat, Alberta. The track is adjacent to Medicine Hat Dragstrip. The speedway and dragstrip together are sometimes refered to as Medicine Hat Motor Plex.
This is the second track known as Medicine Hat Speedway. The first was a 1/4 mile dirt oval which operated from 1986-1993 and was located about 1/4 mile away from the current track. It was shut down due to concerns about its proximity to a chemical plant and replaced by the current track. The original track also operated under the name Medicine Hat Race Track.
The current track opened on August 13th, 1993.
