Dells Raceway Park, Wisconsin Dells

Dells Raceway Park, formerly known as the Dells Motor Speedway, is a car racing raceway located in the town of Lyndon, in Juneau County, north of Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin just off of U.S. Route 12/Wisconsin Highway 16. It is a 1/3 mile asphalt track that is used for stock car racing. The track has hosted races featuring the ARTGO Challenge Series, the NASCAR AutoZone Elite Division, Midwest Series, the ASA Midwest Tour, the Mid-American Stock Car Series, the Wisconsin Challenge Series, and the Must See Racing.com Xtreme Sprint Car Series. The track, which opened in 1958, sits on 38acre of land.The track closed during the middle of the 2006 season over a bank fraud case, but the track was purchased during the following off-season by a group of three investors that included NASCAR driver and Dells area native Frank Kreyer. It reopened in 2007.Howard Johnson, one of the original track owners, like to call the track "Home of the Biggies". The track has a reputation of being "what a short track should be." Dick Trickle described driving the track, "You drop low in the corners and then drift high on the straights. You try to make the track into the roundest oval possible."
