USA International Speedway

USA International Speedway Lakeland, Florida

USA International Speedway is permanently closed but will never be forgotten. America lost a great track.

USA International Speedway is closed now, but was an important track to many racers and fans. This track has also been scanned into the iRacing Race Simulator and one of my favorite tracks to race on.

USA International Speedway was an oval located near Lakeland, Florida. The track was a ¾-mile-long concrete paved oval with 14° banked turns. The track opened in October of 1995. A paved road course operated here briefly in 1998.

This was the site of the Lakeland Interstate Raceway, which operated a 1/4 mile paved oval from 1971 to 1977 and from 1987 to February 1995, and operated a 5/8 mile paved oval from April 16th, 1971 through 1977. Lakeland Interstate Raceway also operated as Lakeland Interstate Speedway and Florida International Raceway.

The track hosted races for the Auto Racing Club of America (ARCA), American Speed Association and the season opener and finale for the Hooters Pro Cup Series. According to the Polk County Property Appraiser’s Web site, the speedway was bought in May 2007 by USA International Speedway Holdings, LLC, which is based out of Clearwater, for $6.2 million. The Track sits on 47 acres and the bulk of the land is zoned for medium industrial and business park space.The owners are seeking zoning changes to the rest of the land to industrial.The track officially closed in August of 2008.

Many of the country’s prominent racing teams from a wide variety of categories within motorsports utilized the facilities for testing year round.There was also several series that tested there, including ARCA, CRA Super Series, and Nascar Sprint Cup.
