FRIDAY FEATURE: Virginia's Glory Road

By Adam Fenwick,

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Virginia’s South Boston Speedway has come a long way since it opened for the first time on Aug. 10, 1957.

Originally a quarter-mile dirt track when it first opened for racing in 1957, the track is now a four-tenths-mile paved oval that plays host to NASCAR sanctioned weekly racing from late March through the middle of September.

South Boston’s General Manager Cathy Rice, who has worked at the speedway since 1989, says the facility plays an important role in the small local community that is void of major attractions.

Rockford Keeps Rolling Along

Adam Fenwick/

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - When you walk into Illinois’ Rockford Speedway, it becomes obvious very quickly that the track isn’t like other motorsports venues.

It’s small, just a quarter-mile in length, with 22 degrees of banking in the turns that helps create intense, high-speed racing. You could argue that there are plenty quarter-mile tracks in the United States and you’d be right, but none of them have the history that Rockford Speedway has.
