For more than six decades, the Sandusky Speedway has seen thousands of races, from NASCAR-sanctioned events to youth go kart races and International Supermodified Association (ISMA) competitions. The speedway, which is situated in Sandusky, Ohio, began as a half-mile-long oval dirt track with 600-foot straightaways and grandstands with seating for 3,500 fans.

In May 1950, officials held the first race at the Sandusky Speedway, which drew more than 2,000 spectators. Within five years, the facility changed management and underwent serious renovations, including a new blacktop racing surface and larger steel grandstands. Over the years, the Sandusky Speedway has experienced various different owners, promoters, and types of racing, but has remained a cornerstone of the Sandusky community. In 2013, the speedway will host a weekend of ISMA races as well as the Midwest Supermodified Association, LLC, (MSA) championships.
