History

The current track was built by race promoter Henry Furr. Originally a four-tenths of a mile oval dirt-track, Furr reconfigured the track adding a true dog-leg to the back stretch. The track now has three unique turns. Pit road entrance is located in the tri-oval prior to turn three. The track had seating for over 12,000 fans prior to a recent downsizing that saw the turn one grandstands converted to a dirt berm.

The track has hosted the Big 10 series in two different stints. Most recently Super Late Models competed in the series from 2003-2005. Freddie Query is the track's all-time leader in wins and claimed the Big 10 series championship in 2004 and 2005.

The track also hosts the USARacing series annually and hosted an ASA event.

Notable competitors

Winners and competitors at the track include Query, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jack Sprague, Ernie Irvan, Justin Labonte, Clay Rogers, and Bobby Gill.
