Duck River Raceway Park, a 1/4 mile dirt oval in Lewisburg, Tennessee is for sale at $650,000. 

The 35 acre facility is located about an hour south of Nashville and an hour north of Huntsville, Alabama. It has been in operation since 1973 and was originally built and named Duck River Speedway by Sam Pugh. The track has a long history of producing some the nation’s most exciting races for fans and racers alike.

For over 40 years, the dirt racing community has gathered on Saturday nights at Duck River to witness local heroes and national dirt racing stars suit up to race. The racing roots run deep as families, friends, and foes have gathered at Duck River Raceway Park to support racing competition at its best.

Since 2012, Bob Harris has owned and operated the facility. Harris re-named the famed track to Duck River Raceway Park, and modernized it to meet the demands of larger crowds and bigger races. Harris made the much needed improvements to the speedway by building state-of-the-art bathrooms, remodeling the concession stands and adding dirt to the speedway.

Duck River Raceway Park has offered a wide variety of racing. From March through December, many different classes have raced each and every Saturday night. Weekly events have included Super Late Models, Two Barrel Late Models, Crate Late Models, and Street Stocks. Special events have also been held with national and regional touring series such as The World of Outlaws Late Models, NeSmith Street Stocks Series, Duck River’s Annual Memorial Day Classic, the Sam Pugh Labor Day Weekend, and Deep Fried 75 Super Late Model events.
