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.

Sikeston International Raceway | 1987

Sikeston International Raceway's final season of operation began after the owner of a local nightclub (the Double Nickel) leased the track and introduced several changes: It was renamed Double Nickel International Raceway, competed on a new night (Fridays) and added classes that promoters hoped would help it attract racers from outside Missouri (Dyersburg Speedway now successfully ran these same divisions weekly on Saturdays). This format lasted only about two months before the facility's owner, A.C. James, took over the lease and returned the track to its former name. Following a large altercation between James and several drivers at a late July event, the track closed and never reopened.
