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.

Thunder City Speedway | 2010

The track was expanded to a full 1/4-mile for the 2010 season. It ran a full season and featured an inconsistent weekly schedule, usually based on the number of cars that signed in to compete each week. Most weeks included modifieds, street stocks, pure stock, and mini stocks, while sprints and late models were added occasionally based on driver participation and interest.
