s Coming on January 30th, Five Flags Speedway will present their 15th Annual Racer’s Swap Meet. This gathering, held in the Speedway parking lot, has become widely popular amongst all the racing community in the Southeast.

There will also be an area for trailers to be displayed. Admission is FREE to the Racer’s Swap Meet, and all transactions will be between buyers and sellers.

Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to 2021, the most highly anticipated New Year anyone can remember. Before we get too far on what’s to come, let’s reflect back briefly, on where we’ve been.

It literally changed the way we live, work, and play. People made more life changing adjustments in 2020 than were expected in a lifetime. Here locally, in our little piece of the world, we adjusted the schedule, changed some events and the way we ran them, and on December 6th completed the 2020 racing season at the 53rd Annual Snowball Derby. A gigantic Thank You goes out here, to our great competitors, [...]

Various options are being discussed, but the track vows to recognize the various Champions, Rookies of the Year, and top points getters as soon as possible.
