Northern California Racing at it’s finest!

Welcome to the Shasta Speedway where local auto racing has been going on for nearly 80 years.  The paved 3/8 mile track is owned and operated by the Shasta District Fair & Event Center and supported by local sponsors and fans like you.  When it comes to outdoor activities in Shasta County, car racing is high on the list with the biggest events being the Shasta District Fair, the 4th of July fireworks by Anderson Explodes and the biggest race of the year, the Lloyd Burton “Against the Wind” Modified Challenge.
Over the years the Shasta Speedway has been host to the NASCAR K&N seriesPacific Challenge SeriesNorth State Modified series and countless local racers, some dating back 5 generations.
Check out the racing schedule for the 2020 season and bring the family down for some good old fashioned auto racing.  Admission is only $10 for adults and kids 12 and under get in free.  Visit the snack bar for hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks and be sure to cheer for your favorite race cars and drivers because they love a live crowd in the grandstands.  Thanks for visiting and we’ll see you all on Saturday Night!

The Drivers

Once a race car driver always a race car driver.  It gets in your blood.  Even if they don’t own a race car anymore they still want to drive.  These people are what drive the sport and the reason we pay the price to watch them do their thing.  Hale the men and women who have the guts to compete on that track for the spectators and fans!

Those Amazing cars!

These drivers pour their heart and soul into their cars and it shows!  Click here to see the latest galleries by Tony Hord Photography.

Who fuels our appetite for more speed?
Speedway Sponsors

Each and every year our sponsors step up to the plate for the community and make things happen in a big way for the Shasta Speedway and all of the fans. Here's to the generous businesses on our sponsor list! They deserve our gratitude and our business.

Need more Racing?

We live in a great area with lots of fun things to do with friends and family.  For more racing action we suggest the Redding Drag Strip.  Check their 2019 schedule out.  Kool April Nites has a drag event out there that should not be missed.  If it’s Karts you’re into then Shasta Kart Klub may be for you.  They have a very competitive track.  Lets not forget our neighbors in Tehama county, the Silver Dollar Speedway for dirt track racing and the Red Bluff Outlaws!  If you haven’t been to a dirt track you owe it to yourself to experience it.  So weather it’s right here in our backyard or somewhere close by, you can get your fill of Northern California racing.

“Thanks for stopping by!  We’ll see you Saturday night at the speedway.”
