Track history

The track began as Jenners Fairgrounds in the late 1920s as a flat half mile dirt track. A dirt quarter mile track was built in the infield in 1953, and the half mile was abandoned. The half mile was restored and briefly used in the mid-1960s. The half mile track was again rebuilt in 1967, and the half mile was used. The track was paved in 1987. The oval was repaved with a $350,000 polymer-based racing surface in 2004.
