At the Track Keep SpeedWorld Open




Speedworld has been an Arizona motorsports icon for more than 50 years and is in jeopardy of being shut down by Maricopa County for minor zoning violations, some of which that were made more than 20 years ago.

Maricopa County alleges that Speedworld is in violation of grading/drainage requirements and use permit violations that were implemented long before current owner Dan Mathews took over the business.

Speedworld is not trying to avoid coming into compliance with the County's requests, we are only asking to be able to keep our doors open while the changes are being made.

If forced to close it's doors during the process, Speedworld would be put out of business completely due to the cost of the changes that the County is seeking.

We're calling on Speedworld customers and motorsports fans around the country to raise awareness on what this track means to Arizona and those across the country. Don't let Arizona's longest running motorsports park be shut down due issues that can easily be worked through by Maricopa County and Speedworld Raceway Park together.

Maybe if they invested in the facility throughout all these years they wouldn't be begging for support now...they charged 15 bux per car to watch races while you're forced to park on the side of the street next to their facility OR in the mud bath inside of it lol...i've seen some good events there but they obviously didn't wanna invest any of that money in making the place better

Do you know about all the issues with the county and the track? If not yes the idea of this whole concept would be confusing. This all started because they were making improvements to the tracks.

I know some of it and I know that the large part of it does involve the fact that the track didn't obtain permits they needed while they were expanding. A lot of time this is because they try and take shortcuts and hope someone overlooks this - I guess it didn't happen this time around. I completely support all of our local tracks and god knows I've been to every single of them numerous times, but I look at it from a different perspective - why ask for the support of the locals if you haven't done much to improve what those locals use...I know this was my choice for attending all those events and parking on the side of the road in knee height grass/bushes with mud all around - but if with all those years open they couldn't have properly paved the damn parking on the inside so you can actually see where your $15 dollar admission fee is going towards then I don't know...

The whole problem they had was with some of the dirtbike tracks. They had a permit to built the main track but no permit to built some of the other ones like the supercross track in the back and the freestyle jumps. They are now trying to force them to get a permit every time they move dirt which is stupid because they are moving dirt all day to keep the motocross track in good shape.
