...and watch the duell! When the Speedway is reopended, don´t miss a trip there. If you´re sensitive, bring ear protection. You´ll be as close to the track as it gets and you´ll smell rubber, fuel and hormones. Cheap food and beer. Bring bug repellant!

It is my understanding that the Punta Gorda Speedway now has new owners and will be opening this fall with some great race nights..... It has been said that there will be a complete makeover of the track including new bleachers and concessions... Excited to see!

When it was open as Punta Gorda Speedway it was great. They closed and went out of business in 2012. New owners took over in 2015 but failed to make rent payments. The track is now closed.

The new owners are trying to fix it up some, they have a small set of bleachers so you can bring your own chairs and relax watching the small racing midgets too. I love the demolish racing and we...

Drove all the way to try and catch a stock car race and there was nobody there. The bleachers were torn down and the place was dark........

race car fans this is the place to be on a Saturday night. only set back is you need to bring your own chair, bleachers are not quite done. The races are cool to watch, I mean do not get me wrong , it isn't Daytona for all means, but its entertaining.
