On Monday, NBC Sports announced the Grassroots Racing Tour #MyTrackMyRoots. Huntsville Speedway is one of the 500 tracks selected nationwide as a participant.
Huntsville Speedway started as a dirt track in 1959, sixty years ago. The track three years later converted to asphalt. A young man by the name of Bobby Allison who had recently moved to Hueytown Alabama took home the trophy and the money for the first win on April 20th, 1962.
Huntsville Speedway off and on has been part of the NASCAR tradition, multiple years, holding NASCAR national touring series events including back in the day the NASCAR Late Model Sportsman and NASCAR All Pro Series.
Today, Huntsville Speedway is in the fourth year of operation by Robbie and Karen Edger. The Edger family took over a track that set dormant for three seasons with the vision to make racing successful once again in Rocket City USA.
The #MyTrackMyRoots campaign is a huge boost for any race track. Huntsville Speedway is thankful for the selection. Huntsville Speedway brings to the table a 60 year racing history filled with lots of racing action and memories.
Oh the memories which was as recent as this past Saturday night. Jaxon Bishop winning the Late Model event, while his father, Casey Bishop a three time champion at Huntsville Speedway straps in after 8 years to take home the win for the STAR SuperTruck division. A father and son winning on the same night, just one of the special memories of 60 years of racing at the south’s fastest quarter mile.
Huntsville Speedway plans to promote strong the #MyTrackMyRoots campaign in order to reach out and let Huntsville Speedway is alive and well located at the foothill of Green Mountain in Madison County Alabama.
