Lakeside Speedway

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Lakeside Speedway is a dirt auto racing track located in Kansas City, Kansas. It features racing on a weekly basis from April to September in USRA Modified, USRA Stock Car, USRA B-Mod, Grand National and Factory Stock categories. Racing at the track is sanctioned by the United States Racing Association as part of the Summit Racing Equipment USRA Weekly Racing Series.

History[edit]

The track originally opened on April 17, 1955, at 92nd and Leavenworth Road. However, three deaths during the 1956 racing season forced its closure. Lakeside Speedway reopened under new management in 1961 and continued at the Leavenworth Road location through 1988 when developers for The Woodlands dog & horse racing track purchased the property. Lakeside Speedway then moved to its present location at 5615 Wolcott Drive, also in Kansas City, Kansas. The move enabled not only construction of modern grandstands and a press box, but also provided room for an adjacent campground for racing fans. From 1989 to 1999 Lakeside operated as a half-mile asphalt track. In 2000, it was again under new management, which converted the speedway to a high-banked 4/10-mile dirt track.[1] Flooding is an ongoing concern at the facility due to its close proximity to the Missouri River.

NASCAR connection[edit]

Among the notable NASCAR drivers who have raced at Lakeside Speedway is Clint Bowyer. Bowyer still holds several records at the track.
