Once you experience racing action at Slinger Super Speedway, you will understand why the World’s Fastest Quarter Mile Oval has such a rich motorsports tradition.
Dating back to the opening of the track in 1948, the speedway has been a breeding ground for racings rising stars. Slinger Super Speedway’s feature winners and division champions, such as Dale Earnhardt, Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth, Rich Bickle, Ken Schrader, Rusty Wallace and the late Alan Kulwicki, have gone on to find success in the elite NASCAR Winston Cup Series.
Others, such as seven-time track champion Miles Melius and five-time track champion Bill Johnson Jr., have remained legends of Slinger Super Speedway for more than 40 years.
The track has grown tremendously in the past 50 years and has evolved into a premier motorsports facility. In October of 2002, Erickson, resurfaced all four corners of the track in order to smooth the surface and create faster lap times. Track resurfacing could pave the way for a driver to break the current track record set by Tony Strupp on June 12, 1994 when Strupp navigated the high banks of Slinger Super Speedway in 11.095 seconds.
Year after year, some of the best know names in motorsports race each other around the high banks of Slinger Super Speedway, just as their older colleagues did in 1948. Each year brings new milestones to speedway competition but one thing is for certain, the Sunday night tradition that was established many years ago, will continue far into the future.
