Wisconsin’s Tomahawk Speedway 1/3 Mile Clay Oval Is For Sale

Tomahawk Speedway in central Wisconsin has been put up for sale. The 1/3rd mile clay semi-banked oval has seen a lot over the years. NASCAR’s Dick Trickle was known to show up at many of the races back when the racing surface was paved and Trickle owned Wisconsin racing. In the last few years it has been another NASCAR star that has made the journey to Tomahawk as a dirt track. Kenny Wallace shows up with his modified to take on the locals from time to time.

The Speedway, a 20-acre racing facility located in Tomahawk, Wisconsin, is for sale at $450,000. The track is located just off of Highway 51 in the northern part of the state and features a 1/3-mile clay semi-banked oval track with brand new clay. The track also hosts other racing events, like snowmobiles in the winter, and all-terrain vehicles in the snow.

The turn-key facility comes ready to operate and features three water trucks, three graders, two fire trucks, three work trucks, one ambulance, one big tire pack/dump truck, all-new LED lighting, new AMB scoring system, and a fully functional kitchen.

Previous owners Rolly and Nesta Hodge sold the speedway in the early 2000s. This started a decline for the track and it ended up owned by a bank. Ron Van Duzen purchased the track and converted it to a 1/3rd mile dirt track, but the attendance was down and the track was closed and remained dormant for a few years. On July 31, 2015, Marilyn Fannetti and Andrew Bartelt bought the track and revived it.

The track appears to be continuing on and has things on the schedule as if nothing is happening. There is even a tentative 2019 schedule posted with the first race set for March 9, an Enduro that features $2,000 to win.

We hope the track finds another enthusiastic owner and fans can continue to enjoy this legendary Wisconsin oval.
