Anderson Speedway History

Constructed in 1948, historic Anderson Speedway is celebrating its 66th consecutive year of racing in 2013. Situated on over 35 acres near downtown Anderson, the Speedway presents some of the most exciting racing action you will find anywhere.

The quarter mile, asphalt track features 17 degree banking in the corners, which creates speeds unique to most short tracks. A record one lap clocking of 10.168 seconds by California's Jo Jo Helberg in May of 2012 in a winged sprint car. Drivers have said of driving at the Speedway, Its like flying a jet airplane in a gymnasium.

The Speedway boasts 10,000 seats situated 360 degrees around the track, which insures a good view from any location. VIP luxury suites in turn one provide a great view and venue for corporate outings and parties.

Anderson Speedway is nationally recognized for the annual Pay Less Little 500 each Memorial Day weekend. 33 sprint cars start in 11 colorful rows of three in this annual 500-lap test of man and machine the night before the Indianapolis 500. The Little 500 trophy is a prize cherished by race drivers worldwide.

In addition to the weekly divisions of McGunegill Engine Performance Late Models, Street Stocks, WMDH ThunderCars, Front Wheel Drives, Anderson Speedway plays host to several national sanctioning bodies.  In 1998, Anderson Speedway was awarded the USAC Promoter of the Year Award and in 1999 received the National Speed Sport News Short Track Event of the Year Award for the Pay Less Little 500.

Anderson Speedway prides itself in providing good, wholesome family entertainment at a reasonable cost. Fans of all ages fill the track at each event.
