If you like NASCAR, Late Models, modified, Outlaw modifieds, mini's, etc. It is a quality speedway with excellent, dedicated drivers and amazing race cars. To...More

Went over Easter weekend for the first since the new owners took over. What a great improvement in all aspects (can't speak of concessions, we didn't get anything). There were so many cars on the track you couldn't keep track - it was great! The...More

The new owners have done a remarkable job of refurbishing the speedway. The bleachers are a big improvement and they are much safer than the old ones! The ticket lines were long due to problems with the processing of credit cards. I was advised that...More

Small town racing for a great night out. But too much time spent between races recognizing 2nd and 3rd place winners (who cares?)!

Large crowd! Bleachers were great for those of us who didn't bring lawn chairs for the grass area in turns 3/4. Concession stands with lots of options. The races were exciting to watch, the flagmen did great work and the pacecar did a good job....More

417 Southern Speedway. Nice job by current owners refurbishing the track. 2 large sets of aluminum bleachers. One bleacher family area with no drinking or smoking. Food and drink prices are very reasonable. Racing was very good. Easy parking and accessible to highway.

The crowd was large and the noise was loud! Lots of old snowbirds at the track last Saturday night. It was some great racing to watch and lots of fun to be there for my husbands birthday!

...and watch the duell! When the Speedway is reopended, don´t miss a trip there. If you´re sensitive, bring ear protection. You´ll be as close to the track as it gets and you´ll smell rubber, fuel and hormones. Cheap food and beer. Bring bug repellant!

It's really a shame that they've removed the stands (and the lights for night racing). It is so much cooler in the evening. However, the day racing schedule is so limited - no one shows up anymore. The signs have come down and people just...More
