nice track for ARCA an USAC but they run too much junk with them. Bring in the bigger series and stop running cars that cant even run the legal speed limit on a race track

Salem Speedway is famous for its high banks. Many of the famous Indy drivers got their start at Salem. The Speedway hosts ARCA races and other types, including races for youth. Overnight camping is available and tailgating is a popular feature.

We love to visit the Salem Speedway. The concession lines are always long and slow but we enjoy the free camping.
