Description

Jennerstown Speedway is one of the oldest short-track facilities in the United States.

Constructed in the late 1920's as a flat half-mile dirt oval, the Jenners Fairgrounds, as the speedway was then known, played host to "big car" racing (forerunners to the sprint cars of today) during the 1930's. Following World War II a smaller, lighted quarter-mile dirt oval was built inside the larger track in 1953. The half-mile oval was rebuilt in the mid-1960's, but was quickly closed again due to poor track conditions.

Today, the track is a 0.522 mile asphalt oval with frontstretch 550 ft banked at 6 and turns 700 ft banked at 9.
