The historic Swainsboro Raceway is located in beautiful Swainsboro, GA just off HWY 56. The 3/8 mile dirt track was opened to automobile racing in 1964 on Sunday afternoons. In 1964, there were only 3 different divisions to compete in and grandstands to seat 100 spectators.
Over the last 51 years, several additions and improvements have been made to the facilities at Swainsboro Raceway. In 2000, the track was purchased by Paul and Debra Purvis, both who have been involved with dirt racing for over 30 years. They along with the staff have made several significant upgrades at the facility. The track office is open Monday thru Saturday allowing the competitors, fans, and sponsors to communicate with the owners and officials at any time.
Swainsboro Raceway now holds regular racing events on Saturday Nights with 5 different racing divisions and 15 Go Kart Divisions. There is grandstand seating available for 3500 race fans with a family friendly non-alcoholic section, an infield area that has 125 pit stalls, 200 outside pit stalls, modern infield and grandstand concession stand, Fan Zone parking area that has 59 parking spots for race fans who like to park and watch the race from the back of their RV or truck, Bud Room for the adults to grab an ice cold beverage and freshly popped popcorn. Behind our Pit Stop Concession Stand you will find a covered shelter with a huge fan and picnic tables so fans can enjoy the beautiful outdoors and smell the aromas of Roundman’s Pig Steaks hot on the grill. For the best view of racing, Swainsboro Raceway now has three beautifully enclosed, air conditioned, VIP Towers with cable television available for rent during any of your special occasions. With steeper banks and more racing groove, to improve safety, the track now has new outside retaining walls. In recent improvements, brand new handicapped accessible restrooms were added behind the grandstands and at the kart track. Swainsboro Kart Track features new lighting in the pit area and new caution lights on the track. To light up the night, new message boards have been added at both tracks. These LED boards feature color graphics for any advertisement or message display.
Our average attendance is over 2500 adults and an average racecar count of 102 and kart count of 118 each racing night . Over 500 different drivers from all over the United States visit Swainsboro Raceway each year. Swainsboro Raceway is host to the Schaeffer’s Southern National Super Late Models, Pine Tree 100, Fire Cracker 100 and Crate Late Model Southern Dream $20,000 to win at the Annual Turkey 100. We also have Ladies night monthly featuring a Powder Puff event for the ladies, our annual Preacher Feature when surrounding area churches come out to cheer as minister’s battle to take the title and trophy for their Church, and the annual Ms. Swainsboro Raceway Pageant.
Swainsboro Raceway is home to one of the best Go Kart facilities in the South. At Swainsboro Kart Track, 15 divisions race weekly with drivers as young as 5 years old. Swainsboro Kart Track has over 100 pit stalls and has had over 300 karts at a single event. In 2015, Swainsboro Kart Track held its first full season with a points competition in each division. The top three drivers received trophies and money and the Points Champion in each division received a leather jacket.
I just love all the racing that they have out there. Its a good place to go and enjoy your self with your family and friends.
