Located a few miles down the road from its more celebrated neighbor (Daytona International Speedway), New Smyrna Speedway is the place to be for hard-core racers during Speedweeks. Why not? The high-banked, half mile’s World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing featuring everything from NASCAR Tour Modifieds, ‘SK’ Type Modifieds and Late Models to Sprint Cars and Pro-Trucks attracts many of the stars of NASCAR as fans and competitors. Tony Stewart , Ryan Newman, Mark Martin, Geoff Bodine and Kyle Busch are just a few of the Sprint Cup drivers who have raced at New Smyrna, and the track has proven to be an increasingly popular test venue among Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series teams.
New Smyrna Speedway was originally built in 1964 utilizing a clay surface but was paved with asphalt three years later when the World Series of Asphalt Auto Racing was launched.
