About

Car racing track in the Pima County, Arizona

Fun for spectators and driving enthusiasts!
Tucson Speedway is a 3/8-mile paved oval racetrack located at the Pima County Fairgrounds, off Interstate 10 just south of Tucson, Arizona. It is one of only three paved ovals in the state of Arizona

In 2012, Tucson businessman John Lashley bought the lease on the track and spent six months renovating the facility, which re-opened in 2013 as Tucson Speedway.

In 2014 Tucson Speedway joined NASCAR as an authorized hometrack.

Racing at the track
In 2014, Tucson Speedway re-joined the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Tucson Speedway features Super Late Models, Limited Late Models, Pro-Stocks, Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, Super Trucks, Hornets, Bandoleros and INEX Legends.

Races are almost always held on Saturday nights, with practice sessions held on Friday. Thanks to the warm climate in Tucson, the track is able to remain open from February to November, only closing on weekends when there is a Sprint Cup race at Phoenix.

Racing at the track
In 1995, TRP hosted the second-ever NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race, the Racing Champions 200. This race returned in 1996 and 1997 as the NAPA 200.

TRP was also the home of the TV program Winter Heat Series, which ran during NASCAR’s offseason from 1994-95 to 1998-99. This program was the launching pad for the careers of drivers such as Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Matt Crafton and others.
