WHAT’S NEXT?

A record crowd attended the last exciting EVE OF DESTRUCTION on Saturday, September 23, 2017. On Sept. 30th, an appreciative audience enjoyed a night of CHILI and BLUES, our 1st outdoor concert. It was a difficult call, but the Halloween EOD Season Finale has been cancelled. The weather for October 27 is just too risky. NEXT on the DOCKET: Winterizing the facilities, and preparing for an aggressive and exciting 2018 schedule! Information will be posted on the website, shared on Facebook, and communicated through email as events are confirmed, so stay tuned. Thanks for welcoming us into the racing family, and making Birch Run Speedway & Event Center, the place to be!

ABOUT US

PAST: The Dixie Motor Speedway located at 10945 Dixie Highway in Birch Run, Michigan opened in 1948 with a 1/3 mile oval. The dirt track was paved in the 1960’s, and a Figure 8 Course was later added to the infield. After the Kern family took over in 1996, the Speedway continued to grow in popularity and possibilities with the addition of a 4/10 mile, progressively banked, asphalt oval short track.

PRESENT: The Dixie Motor Speedway has a new name and a new owner. For more information, check out the story on ABC-12 News. The roar of racing returns to the BIRCH RUN SPEEDWAY & EVENT CENTER with the season opener, EVE OF DESTRUCTION, on FRIDAY, JUNE 30th, 2017 at 7:30 pm.

FUTURE: New owner, Andrew Suski and General Manager Michael Szukhent are making plans to improve the 49 acre site in Birch Run Township, and expect to expand events in the future to include a flea market, farmers’ market, craft shows, and outdoor concerts. Follow us on Facebook for news and information about upcoming events as we gear up for the 70th anniversary of the track in 2018, and WATCH US GO!
