The speedway in February 2012
|Length||0.250 mi (0.402 km)|
Huntsville Speedway is a quarter-mile (.402 km) oval race track in Huntsville, Alabama. It opened in 1959 as a dirt track, and was paved in 1962. It held one NASCAR Grand National Series (now Sprint Cup) event in 1962, won by Richard Petty. Today the track hosts weekly racing with a variety of stock car and modified classes. Sadly I must state that Huntsville Speedway shut down early in 2013, and looks like it has not reopened as of this date May 18, 2014.
