ozens of short tracks and paved drag strips racing everything from stock cars to lawn mowers to motorcycles have come and gone over a span of almost 100 years across our region, and some still hold events each week in front of thousands of fans and competitors.

Our motorsports pages will be an evolving source of archived information, history, and milestones for the sport in Southeast Missouri.

Auto Tire & Parts Racepark | 2001

Doug Friese led a group of investors from the Cape Girardeau-based Auto Tire & Parts chain to purchase the track, rename it Auto Tire & Parts Racepark, and open the facility for the first time since October 1998. Limited late models and the two-man cruiser cars were introduced on a rotating schedule, while Sprints headlined weekly programs. Open-wheel modifieds were added to the weekly schedule for the first time in the track's history.
