Pennsboro Speedway, nestled in the heart of Pennsboro, West Virginia, has taken significant strides in its journey towards revitalization, setting the stage for an eagerly awaited return to racing in 2024. The recent autumn construction efforts have successfully laid the foundation for the brand-new ¼-mile race track. The project remains firmly on schedule, with plans to fully unveil the facility for racing by Spring 2024.
The Pennsboro Speedway revitalization project, led by XR Events and supported by the Ritchie County Fairground board, encountered and surmounted the customary challenges and adjustments inherent in any construction undertaking. Adhering to strict hillside regulations, the project led to the reduction of the track’s width, although this was ingeniously offset by a lengthening that created a spacious track design. Drawing inspiration from renowned tracks such as Davenport Speedway in Iowa (layout), Fairbury Speedway in Illinois (banking), and the former Legendary Hilltop in Ohio (size), the construction team is meticulously crafting a cutting-edge track model that promises to deliver an unparalleled racing experience.
The anticipation is building, as Pennsboro Speedway aims to make a triumphant return to the racing scene on April 20, 2024. Racing enthusiasts can now secure their seats and be part of this exciting revival, with a full schedule of events available. Tickets for the upcoming racing season are currently on sale and can be purchased at www.xrevents.tickets.
