Historical Note

The 3/8 mile oval was built in 1967 as a asphalt track. In April of 1984 it was converted to dirt. In 1996 it was converted to concrete. The 3/8 mile oval has operated variously as Kingsport International Speedway, Raceland Kingsport, Kingsport Motor Speedway, New Kingsport Speedway, Tri-Cities Speedway, MARCA Motorsports Community and Galaxy Kingsport Speedway.

The 1/5 mile oval was built in 1994 and operated until 2000. It has operated under the names Kingsport Mini-Way, Galaxy Kingsport Mini-Way and MARCA Motorsports Community.

The facility closed in 2002, but appears to have reopened briefly in late 2006. It reopened again with a limited schedule in 2009. For 2011, it was leased by former NASCAR driver Robert Pressley and returned to full time operation.
