A three-quarter-mile, high-banked, paved oval, USA International hosts USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series, ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour and Super Late Model Stock Car events each season.
Located in Lakeland, USA International Speedway’s central Florida location makes it a year-round facility. Add in the track’s configuration – relatively long straights into tight banked turns that test both braking and suspension setup – and it’s clear why top NASCAR teams, which face strict limits on testing at tracks that host their series, spend a lot of time in Lakeland. Much of the COT development took place at USA International Speedway.
The qualities that make the track so useful for top NASCAR teams provide significant challenges for the drivers and crews of Late Models, Super Late Models and other stock cars. For them, USA International Speedway is a relatively long track, but it takes a balance of horsepower and handling to be competitive.
