Organized short-track stock car racing first made its way into the Ashland, WI, area in the mid-1950s, when the now-defunct Chequamegon Racing Association held its very first racing program on a little baseball field near Ino, WI, about 20 miles west of Ashland. From there racing moved to a hayfield near Moquah, just west of Ashland, where interest grew quickly during the late 1950s and into the early ‘60s.
With the growth came the need to find a site for a permanent, safe and secure facility. The organization found this on a piece of land just three miles south of Ashland – a race track that had already been built by the Frank Brevak family.
The club saw a few short years’ worth of success at the new facility, but as the ’60s progressed interest in racing faded slightly and the track became idle; weather and lack of maintenance eveventually took its toll on the unkept grounds and buildings. Then, in the spring of 1965, several area citizens who were involved in those early race events gathered to revive racing in the Chequamegon Bay area. A meeting was called, a hat was passed to collect donations for the purchase of a stopwatch and some flags, and the Ashland-Bayfield County Racing Association – the not-for-profit organization which to this day promotes and runs the ABC Raceway – was born.
