In what has become a November tradition Anderson Speedway wraps up the 2016 racing season with the annual “Turkey Bash” event. Feature racing in five different divisions is set for Saturday at 1 p.m. with adult tickets priced at $12 with $4 admission cost for children between the ages of 6 and 12.
We have been receiving multiple questions regarding the status of the track. Apparently an article was created on a hoax website stating that the track has been sold. The track is not for sale and the track is already planning for a great 2017 season. Anderson Speedway is close to releasing its 2017 schedule and rules within the next few weeks. Thank you for the continued support of Anderson Speedway and look forward to seeing everyone at the Turkey Bash on November 5th.
Anderson Speedway Officials have released a new schedule of events for the Turkey Bash on Saturday, November 5. The ThunderCars have been removed from the schedule.

The same car participating in two different feature events will be required to pay a $25 entry fee.
