Located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, the half-mile Williams Grove Speedway has been part of the rich history of motorsports throughout the nation and the world since the gates were first opened in 1939. Tommy Hinnershitz won the first-ever event contested before weekly sprint car racing began in 1967. Prior to that time stock car racing was the norm before it evolved into coupes and the famed 30 x 90 bugs.
The Cumberland County oval has been the playing field for not only some of the most recognized sanctioning bodies in auto racing but also for the finest drivers to ever strap themselves into an open-cockpit car. National champions like Ted Horn, A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti have raced at the Grove, which has laid the framework for what has come to be known as the best in the sprint car business competing on a regular basis.
Today, Williams Grove hosts weekly programs of the best sprint car racing anywhere from late February to October, including appearances by the World of Outlaws. Featuring a family atmosphere and affordable prices, be sure to visit The Grove in person after you have visited us on the web.
