Originally a 1/2 mile dirt oval, the race track at 57 Gunnville Rd. in Lancaster, New York opened its doors on May 30, 1959.  An 1/8 mile drag strip was added in front of the oval in preparation for the 1960 racing season.  Over several years, the dirt oval was paved and increased in size several times until it reached its current 5/8 mile design.
