“If you can win at New Smyrna Speedway, you can win anywhere in the United States.” -Richie Evans
Originally operated as a dirt track when it opened in …., the Speedway was paved just six months later and has remained one of the premier pavement tracks in the Country. Over the years, some of the biggest names in racing have tried their hand at the high-banked half-mile. They include Donnie, Bobby and Davey Allison, Rusty Wallace, Mark Martin, Dick Trickle, Neil Bonnett, Harry Gant, Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman and perhaps one of the best short-track racers that ever lived, Richie Evans. This nine-time NASCAR National Champion coined the phrase, “If you can win at New Smyrna Speedway, you can win anywhere in the United States.”
As a small-town local venue, New Smyrna Speedway has been very involved in the community by holding fundraisers throughout the years. Local High School sports teams, boosters, and other charitable organizations have all benefited from these generous endeavors . In 2011, New Smyrna Speedway is taking yet another step forward in their fundraising efforts, becoming the first race track in the Country to dedicate an entire year to Breast Cancer Awareness. The campaign started by decorating the Start/Finish Line and Victory Circle with a bright pink and black checkered flag pattern instead of its traditional white and black checkered flag pattern. It has grown substantially to now include nightly collections throughout the grandstands and pit area, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Breast Cancer Awareness.
