Concord Motorsport Park

Concord Motorsport Park is a complex of 3 oval tracks located near Concord, North Carolina. The three tracks are a 1/2 mile paved tri-oval, a 1/4 mile paved oval, and a 1/5 mile paved oval. The 1/2 mile track is banked, the banking ranging from 8 degrees at start-finish to 14 degrees in turns 1 and 3. The 1/4 and 1/5 mile ovals appear to be nested one within the other,and the 1/5 mile version does not appear to be used any longer. The 1/4 mile track is used for karts as well as some auto races.

Historical Note

Concord Motorsport Park was founded in 1982 as a 4/10th mile "outlaw" dirt oval. The track was paved in 1987 and came under NASCAR sanction the following year.

Subsequent to the original construction, the original owner built a 1/4 mile dirt oval next to the original, expanded oval, and then extended the original track to 1/2 mile.

In late 1996, the track was purchased by the Laton family of Albemarle, North Carolina.

The track has also operated under the names Concord Speedway, New Concord Speedway and Concord Motor Speedway.

This track should not be confused with a number of older tracks in the Concord area which operated under similar or identical names.
