Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park

Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP) is one of the most historic tracks in the country and celebrates it’s 75th anniversary in 2015. The track was originally built in 1940 by John Hoenig who constructed a 5/8 mile high-banked oval on his property – the first asphalt oval track in the country. TSMP is also home to a 1.7 mile road course, which features a variety of grassroots racing and high performance driving events, hosting clubs such as BMW Car Club of America, Porsche Club of America, Audi Northeast, SCDA, and the Mercedes-Benz Club of America.

TSMP hosts several large events on both the road course and oval tracks throughout the year. The oval features several NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races, and ends the season with its annual World Series which has been rated one of the top short-track racing events in the nation. The World Series is three days of racing and includes the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Super Modifieds (ISMA), American Canadian Tour, NEMA and TSMP’s own four NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions.

The feature event on the road course is the annual Vintage Motorsports Festival which features cars ranging from pre-war to the 70’s and 80’s.
