From its beginnings in 1948, Big Country Speedway is Wyoming’s only paved asphalt track and this event will test the waters to see if an audience will support the track as it grows beyond short-track oval racing.

 “The Big Country Speedway track is typically open Saturday nights from May to the end of September. The new management group hopes to add activities like concerts and BMX events to the lineup as well.”


And so it begins, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday - May 5, 6 & 7, 2017

Last year, the track showed political correctness when then candidate Marian Orr ran some laps while running for Mayor of Cheyenne. Since she won, maybe now she’ll give the monster trucks a try!

Trip Advisor rates the track 4½ stars out of 5. Number 32 of of 44 things to do in Cheyenne.
