Williams Grove Speedway

Starting in 1939, Williams Grove Speedway has been one of the top sprint car tracks in the country.  The speedway is a mile banked smooth clay oval with speeds reaching in excess of 100 mph.  The 2016 racing season runs from March 18th to October 7th.  Our largest show, the World of Outlaws National Open pays over $225,000 in prize money.  Season admission prices range from $14 to $45, discounted youth (Ages 13-20) $10-$20 and Kids 12 and under are always FREE.  Special sanctioned races include the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, United States Auto Club, Super DIRTcar Series, All-Star Circuit of Champions, United Racing Club and the American Racing Drivers Club among others.  Other racing divisions throughout the season include, 358 sprint cars, super sportsman, limited late models and street stocks.  We strive to be a family oriented facility by hosting School’s Out Night, the Math Fact Challenge and supporting many local and national charities.
