Meridian Speedway is a motorsport race track in Meridian, Idaho, United States. The quarter mile in length track, which is paved with asphalt, mostly hosts late model racing, modified racing, and other local-level racing events throughout the year. The tracks holds weekly races under the NASCAR sanction as a member of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series. The biggest event it has hosted is the ARCA Menards Series West (formerly the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West), which held races at the track from 2015 to 2019 as well as 1972.

Due to its small size, the infield is empty (only a patch of grass) and pit road is located outside the track behind the backstretch. The entrance to pit road is located in turn 2, with the exit back onto the track in turn 3. Right outside of the track is the town's yellow water tower, and a replica of it is on the track's winner's trophies.

The track is notable for being the track that Hailie Deegan won her first NASCAR race at to become only the second female to win a NASCAR race. She won the 2018 West Series race here.

  • I love going here. Racers from all over (California, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado, Canada etc.)come to this short track. Plus our very own local guys. They have family friendly areas, non smoking areas, and my favorite...the north end!! Almost anything goes here for the 'North end Animals'!! It is honestly fun for all ages. From little children to the not so little children, this place has em all! I have been here many times for whether as a spectator or helping my friend and daughter with their race cars. The announcers are amazing. The crew that works here keep the show going smoothly each and every time. The safety crew are fast, efficient, and always on the spot! I have been to a handful of other tracks in Washington, Utah and Idaho and none of them touch how amazing Meridian Speedway truly is! Hats off to everyone who make this place so special!
  • Attended the 4th of July race and fireworks. The races were very competitive and exciting to watch. The fireworks display was fantastic. The service at the concession stands was good and fairly quick. Their attention to entertain is remarkable and always something going on. Only shortcomings are not enough parking and need more restrooms. Great entertainment for the money!!
