Historical Note

The track opened in 1963 as a 1/4 mile dirt oval. It was not particularly successful, and operated in fits and starts over the next 20 years. Under new owners, the track was extensively renovated and expanded to 1/3 mile, reopening in 1982. The track closed in 2005. The owners cited excessive insurance costs as the reason for closing.
