The track opened in 1939 as a 1/4 mile dirt track. In 1944 and 1945 the track closed and served as a Prisoners of War (POW) Camp during WWII. In 1946, the track reopened with a new 1/2 mile dirt oval surrounding the 1/4 mile dirt track and operated this way until 1953. The track has changed ownership several times and has a rich history. Currently, the track was purchased by Ken and Gerry Williams in 2019.
