Track History

Throughout its 142 year history, the Stafford Motor Speedway has enjoyed a reputation for the innovative. Known as the Stafford Springs Agricultural Park, this 100 acre facility was developed to showcase the area’s Agricultural Heritage.  Quickly Stafford’s reputation grew. The largest Agricultural events in New England called Stafford home and a half mile horse racing facility drew crowds interested in horsepower instead of fertilizer! Trotters and Pacers tested the Stafford track up to the end of World War II when the return to peace and prosperity brought a new type of racing to Stafford. Park officials reasoned that Americans were ready for faster action. They saw the popularity of Automobile racing in other regions of the country and the horse gave way to motor racing.

Midgets, Sprint Cars and an occasional new form of racing from the South called stock cars made Stafford a regular stop on a circuit that saw names like Bill Schindler, Johnny Kaye, George Flemke and Joe Ciski take checkered flags.  Bill France, Sr. unveiled his Daytona Speedway in 1959 and Stafford Speedway saw France’s vision. They entered into a long term agreement with France’s organization called NASCAR and have hosted weekly NASCAR events ever since.

Initially, Stafford remained a dirt track where Ernie Gahan captured one of his National titles. The track embraced stock car racing and a division known as modifieds. (pre-war coupes souped up with post war engines) . Midgets and sprints for the most part still garnered most of the racing enthusiasts attention, but the excitement of Bill France’s Modifieds attracted a new fan and the exploits of Lee Petty, Joe Weatherly and Curtis Turner in the South were rivaled by the exploits of their Northern counterparts; Pete Corey, Ernie Gahan, Bill Wimble, Frankie Schnider and a youngster named Eddie Flemke.  In 1967, Stafford’s dirt was replaced by asphalt. With the new coat of pavement came a reputation that the track enjoys to this day.

Great Racing Facility


By Mike A. on Jun 07, 2016 

Stafford Speedway is one of the premiere racing facilities on the planet !! I spent a few years racing here and now it's my sons turn. When family , friends and sponsors come out to support us they are just as impressed as we are. It continues to be run by the Arute family with the same authority as Jack Sr
