A Brief History Of Texas Motor Speedway

Before there was Texas Motor Speedway, there was the original Texas Speedway that opened in 1910 and closed in 1926. A year after that, in 1927, the present day speedway was built. It is the only surviving asphalt twin track speedway in America. With a total track length of one mile, the speedway has always been a popular and historic racetrack. The track now also has banked turns, tri-lane concrete walls, a catch fence, and seating for 54,500 spectators. The original asphalt twin track has been restored and now serves as the main track while the new concrete surface track is used for practicing and qualifying for NASCAR events.

The present day speedway has always been a favorite among racing fans, especially because it is the only place in America that one can see the stars of the sport: Dale Earnhardt, Junior, Richard Petty, and more recently: Jeff Gordon, Darrell Waltrip, and David Reutimann.

The Texas Motor Speedway began as a vision of a man named William Hudson. In 1914, he established a speedway of 500 yards in Galveston, Texas. It was the first paved race track in Texas. Its inaugural race was held on October 7th, 1914. Hudson’s track soon became famous and was the site of many historic moments. In 1939, during the Great Depression, the track was closed down due to a lack of racing. But, after two years, the track was rebuilt and reopened for racing. For a time, it was the busiest and most famous race track in the country. Since then, it has continued to host some of the biggest races in the history of NASCAR.

The year is 2014 and the grand opening of the Texas Motor Speedway will be on August 10th. The speedway is holding a centennial open dress rehearsal on August 6th and the big race is on August 9th. The 2014 race schedule consists of the following events:
