The corners are banked at 17 degrees. The 2010 track record of 10.28 seconds in a winged sprint car was the world record for quarter-mile paved ovals until a sprint car driver qualified at Slinger Speedway in 9.909 seconds in August 2010. The track holds a USAC national midget race and it held national American Speed Association (ASA) races before the original tour ended.
The track hosts the annual Pay Less Little 500 presented by UAW GM on the Saturday of the Memorial Day weekend, the night before the Indianapolis 500. At 500 laps, or 125 miles, the race is unusually long for sprint car races (typically races are between 10 and 50 miles), and is considered one of the premier sprint car races. The field consists of 33 cars lined up in eleven rows of three, mimicking the traditional Indy 500 lineup. Many eventual Indy 500 drivers competed in the Little 500 over the years. The 67th edition of the Pay Less Little 500 will pay out over $124,400, making it the biggest asphalt sprint car payout in the world.
