Historical Note

The track was originally built for the Indy Racing League, which held a 200 mile race there annually from January 26th, 1996 through January 29th, 2000. There is no longer any sanctioned racing program there.

The track has also been referred to as Tomorrowland Indy Speedway.

The facility was used for a mixture of testing and "driving experience" events after the racing program ceased in 2000. Marque club style HPDE events were occasionally held using a combination of the oval with a course section through the paddock. The oval section was used in the reverse direction in at least some cases, which apparently contributed to the death of an instructor at such an event in 2015.

The death at WDW Speedway was not the cause of the closure, which had already been announced.

Getting There

Access to the track will be via North World Drive (the main entry road for the Magic Kingdom). The selected intersection was chosen so that the map would show the location of the track, but in actuality this would be the place you see on the way out.
