SUNSET SPEEDWAY – THEN & NOW
Sunset Speedway with its geographic location being forty minutes from Toronto, the closest motorsports facility to race fans everywhere.
Since its birth in 1968, Sunset Speedway has produced some of Canada’s top stock car racers. NASCAR drivers Mark Dilley, Peter Gibbons, Kerry Micks, as well as Canadian legends Jr. Hanley and the late Don Biederman.Stock Car Racing is the most watched sport in the world. Ahead of football, baseball, soccer and hockey!
New ownership purchased Sunset Speedway in May 2009. Since that time they have invested significant funds to upgrade the facility. During the 2009 season many fan comfort repairs took place including grandstands, cement walkways and general overall appearance upgrades.
At season end in 2009, the existing track asphalt was ground out, walls were removed and it was extended 50’. A pit road was added for future hosting of traveling series events. The track has been resurfaced and is now a 1/3 mile high banked oval – a track we consider to be the best in the Country.
