Kingsport Speedway has provided race fans in the Tri-Cities, TN and surrounding areas with exciting short track racing since 1965. The speedway has undergone four surface changes in its 50 plus years of existence. Founded as a dirt track in 1965, the facility transitioned to an asphalt track in 1969, back to dirt track in 1984, and then to its current concrete surface in 1996.
In 1968, Kingsport Speedway hosted its first NASCAR event. Currently, Kingsport Speedway is part of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS), NASCAR’s grassroots series. The NWAAS sanctions nearly 60 racetracks throughout the United States and Canada in which drivers compete national, state, and track titles.
#TheConcreteJungle features racing in Late Model Stock Car, Modified Street, Pure 4, Mod 4, and Pure Street. Sanctioned by the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, racing begins in mid-March and comes to a close in early September.
