Big time racing at Kokomo Speedway

Indiana’s Baddest Bullring is right here in Kokomo and is celebrating over 75 years of racing!

Over the years the track has played host to virtually a who’s who in racing history. A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, Lloyd Ruby, Troy Ruttman, Johnny Parsons, Parnelli Jones, Bill Vuckovich, Pancho Carter, John Andretti, Steve Butler, J.J. Yeley, Steve Kinser, Jack Hewitt, Rich Vogler, Tom Bigelow, Tony Stewart and Mike Groff are among those who have both raced at the track as well as in the Indianapolis 500.

Kokomo Speedway is a fast, 1/4 mile semi-banked clay oval located off Davis Road. The track got its start in 1947 and now runs races select Sunday nights from May to September, as well as special weekend events.

It’s a family-oriented facility, even offering a family seating section that prohibits alcohol. It also has family-friendly pricing and kids ages 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult (to most events.)

Pit passes are available to purchase, and minors are allowed in the pits with a signed release. There’s also a souvenir shop, closed-circuit television screens, two full-service concession stands, permanent front stretch restrooms and a beer garden.

The track’s season is packed full of action, including Indiana Midget Week, Kokomo Grand Prix and the popular Sprint Car Smackdown. For a complete schedule of events and more information, visit Kokomo Speedway’s website.
