Lake Erie Speedway is a 3/8 mile (0.6 km) paved, banked oval race track which opened on June 21, 2002 in Erie County, Pennsylvania south of North East, Pennsylvania, United States. It is a member of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Lake Erie Speedway runs five race divisions including: Plyler Overhead Door Modifieds, Street Stocks, Compacts, Legends, and Bandoleros. Lake Erie Speedway special events include TQ Midgets, Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam featuring Grave Digger, MidSummer Music Fest, Must See Racing Super Modifeds, Crash-A-Rama, and USAC Midget Series. The track formerly hosted the ARCA RE/MAX Series and the NASCAR Busch East/North Series. Unlike the top three NASCAR series (Cup, Nationwide, Trucks), the official fuel provider is Kwik Fill, instead of Sunoco. In 2013, the track hosted the Legends Asphalt National Race on September 12-15.
