Track History

In 1939 the Owosso Speedway opened as a 14 mile (0.40 km) dirt oval. The track would operate until 1944 when it closed to serve as a POW Camp for captured German soldiers from World War II. These soldiers were housed on the Speedway facilities and were allowed out into the community to do small jobs for the locals.
