Racing fans love the Sumter Speedway, a dirt track that hosts racing events every Saturday night during race season. The track has a diverse entertainment lineup, with everything from stock car racing to children’s dirt bikes.

Its nickname is “The Toughest Dirt Track in the South.” It's not uncommon for spectators to leave with a little bit of the track on them. Cars often toss mud into the bleachers. Most spectators bring in their own lawnchairs and sit in the bleachers.  A trailer behind the bleachers serves up concessions. The Sumter Speedway has been in operation for more than 50 years.
