Kent Raceway Society is a non-profit society dedicated to supporting anf furthering the sport of stock car racing. We relay on our wonderful volunteers to keep the raceway operating. We have been at our current location since the 1971 racing season. The track was originally constructed for the fun and enjoyment of racers and spectators. The first three years of racing were run, if and when, cars were available and if the weather cooperated. the track was a very rough one quarter mile oval, with no banking, no guard rails and very little spectator seating.
In 1974, the track was upgraded. It was widened by 40 feet and graded regularly. Clay was trucked in and a water truck was acquired to subdue the dust. In 1978, the club embarked on a very ambitious project - to pave the track to a super elevated one quarter mile oval track, 55 feet wide with a depressed pit area in the center. In 1988, a Lottery grant helped to erect new blearchers and a concession stand.
DID YOU KNOW - originally there was only one class of cars, Hobby Stock, now known as Sportsman. Mini -stocks joined us in 1990 with Street Stock and Mini-modified classes two years later in 1992. Over the years, we have continued to add classes, including Hornets, Midgets and Hit-to-Pass.
Throughout the racing season, invitationals and special events abound, giving fans the opportunity to experience other classes and cheer on our many drivers.
We are wheelchair accessible, have seating for 1000 in grandstand and exrtreme seating areas. Flush toilets and our concession provides non-alcoholic drinks, burgers, hotdogs and fries. Don't forget to purchase your T-shirts, hats, etc to support our racing.
