I was here for a race with the super cup racing series. Track looked awesome to race on. And fast. I crew for a team and had a great time at this track. It was a hot day on the track. We had tents but still hot. But had a good time and can’t wait to race there again.

Took our new camper out for the first time to the races, which is going to be great for us, and had an awesome time with friends and family. This race track has a lot of history and is starting to gain attention again to host some really great races. Can't wait to see what the future holds for us and the track.

I went here for the first time with some friends. I have been to tracks near Chicago when I lived up there. I was very pleased with the experience. I guess there is a lot of history at this track. I look forward to going back.

Salem Speedway auto racing history is as distinguished as any racing venue in the country. Exciting high speed action. Wide variety of racing vehicles from go carts to Semi trucks. Friendly admission prices. Free parking. Free camping. Very good food at the concession stand.

I have attended races here for the last twenty years. The spring and fall ARCA races are great, Tickets are very cheap and the speedway is excellent in every way.

nice track for ARCA an USAC but they run too much junk with them. Bring in the bigger series and stop running cars that cant even run the legal speed limit on a race track

Salem Speedway is famous for its high banks. Many of the famous Indy drivers got their start at Salem. The Speedway hosts ARCA races and other types, including races for youth. Overnight camping is available and tailgating is a popular feature.

This is one of the best races of the year. High car count with cars from all over the Midwest. Camping is free and there is plenty of room. The grounds and stands are well maintained. At least for this race the weather is fantastic. Race 🏎 on.
