Press Kit

Our Story:

Tri-City Motor Speedway is a family-friendly racing venue that offers circle-track stock car racing late April through early September.

Tri-City Motor Speedway first opened in 1947 after the coal mine shut down the year prior. The track closed in 2004 and sat vacant. Steve Puvalowski purchased the track from an auction in 2009 at the age of 24.

After the track closed in 2004, the property was abandoned and vandalized. Steve renovated the track and the property for 18 months with a small crew of friends, relatives and hired help. The all new Tri-City Motor Speedway was reborn on June 17, 2011 as a 3/8 mile dirt oval race track. 

Tri-City Motor Speedway provides quality weekly entertainment for all ages, while continuing to give back to the community.
