Owosso Speedway is a fixture in the Motorsports history books in the great state of Michigan. The 2013 racing season at the Big ‘O’ is the tracks’ 73rd year of operation. The track is currently a 3/8ths mile high-banked, paved oval with a seating capacity of 3,500 fans.

In 1939 the track opened up as a 1/4 mile dirt oval. Then for two years in 1944 and 1945, the track closed the doors on Auto Racing to serve as a Prisoners of War (P.O.W.) Camp during World War II.

The race track reopened for Auto Racing in 1946 with a new 1/2 mile dirt oval surrounding the existing 1/4 mile dirt track and operated this way until 1953, when just the 1/4 mile was paved while the 1/2 mile remained a dirt oval! The track stayed that way until 1972 when the 1/2 mile was also paved. It was in 1983 when the pavement was removed from both tracks and the historical facility operated as both a 1/2 mile and 1/4 mile dirt track once again.

For the 1989 racing season, under the Simko Family ownership, the track was completely redesigned to its current 3/8s Mile High-Banked Paved Oval configuration and still today, is regarded as one of the raciest speedways in the United States with constant side by side racing with two and even three race-able grooves.

In 2000, Karl Keifer and Donnie Shaw purchased the facility while Keifer alone was the owner for the 2003 season. At the end of that year, Bighause Inc., bought the speedway from Keifer and ran the facility beginning with the 2004 campaign. In April of 2006, a Dirt Figure 8 track was constructed inside the infield of the 3/8s mile pavement.

In July of 2008, the Fast Track Promotions Inc., team of Rick and Jennie Miracle and Jeff and Pam Parish leased the historic Ovid, Michigan speed plant from Bighause Inc., The Miracles were the sole promoters beginning with the 2011 season.

Today, Owosso Speedway is one of the premiere short tracks in the state of Michigan featuring constant side by side action as Bighause Inc., has reassumed control of the speedway in cooperation with Rick & Jennie Miracle serving as Promoters under their own Fast Track Promotions banner.
