As of this year, 2013, there are new owners of Owendale. and the name of the track has been changed to Silver Bullet Speedway (which it was named once before). The new owners have been doing some great promotions and have invested time and money into the track. If you get the chance, go out and support the track. it is a fun 'throwback' kinda track.

1/4 mile dirt and the racing is fast. They race every Saturday night.

Saturday, Oct 6th is the last event of the 2012 season at Owendale Speedway. they are having a NEED FOR SPEED event. It has some bigger payouts and multiple classes. if you want to get one of your last fixes for local MI short track racing. make it out to Owendale and support a good local track & business!!! Call Matt Duggan 989-396-1562 for more info.

Thanks to WaterWinterWonderland for this site so we can share past memories and future memories as well!!!.

Hello, I used to race here in 1967, 68,69,70. I drove for Cliff Waterman, Uncle willie from town was related. Car number was 012 a 39 chevy coupe, and later my own car I-75 a 56 Ford. If any body has any photos I would pay gladly for them, Also Uncle Willie from town had a daughter Terrible I can't remember her name, but sure would like to get in touch.

Sat - 7/28/12 I went to Owendale Speedway. Wow. this track has not changed since back in the day. only difference is the years of the cars. And this is total dirt track racing as there was dirt flying in every corner.

Feirce competition and these are not 'junkers' out there. Some money is being spent for sure. Car count was a bit down, but Tri City had a rain out the night before (Fri) and was open on this same Sat, so some drivers went there (from what I was told) also the Bad Axe Fair was in full swing. regardless, I recommend going and checking Owendale out.

Only $8 to get in and food prices were fair. The fans there love their drivers. nice to hear applause for each winner as they had there picture taken. This track is one of the surviving tracks around.

If you believe in MI short track racing, then head out to Owendale one Saturday, They really could use the support. Hats off to the owners, promoters and staff of Owendale for keeping it alive. Also a tip of the hat to the fans and racers that still contribute!!! Good job Owendale Speedway. I'll be back for sure!!!.

hello all racers and fans at owendalespeedway. mary and ray need to start doing things like it was ran back in the 1980s lots of cars from all classes some big names use to run here. need to make flyers and mail them to a few differrent dirttracks and have a invatational race for streetstocks and the limitedlatemodels. also an end of the year event would be a great thing look at mid michigan out in B. F.

E. and they get way to many cars at the cornharvest event people love to race at different types of events. no reason why you cant put out some cheap flyers out at other tracks you can make them on a computer for about 2cents each i am sure the drivers that go to differnt tracks can take a few dozen and pass them out and post them up. maybe have it go over the P.

A. system. i love owendale speedway alot it can be a primier track if the effort was inputed.

7/8/2007 - Race Fan
it was grate night for racing, i thought it was going to be dry and dusty like always , but the track was wet all night long making for good side by side racing. some of the best racing i seen all year at owendale. keep up the good work track crew !!! like always i go to see the limiteds excllent show. murawski did a hell of a job started 2 in the dash won that. then murawski started 8th in the heat, and man he came up thorough the pack and won that.

then for the feature i know he had the car to beat. but a few laps in dale ( cake ) name ? lost a wheel the car spon and murawski had no place to go. the track crew got the cars a part murawski had bad right side damage to the car. he went in the pits got a trie put on and made it back out.

he got 6th. ray petit won the feature. murawski i hope you win the championship. tell your crew to keep the hard work and it should pay off in the end.

unless the 5 car comes in to play.

Owendale Speedway will be open for Test & Tune MAY 5th and first race night will be MAY 12th, 2007 according to the website.
1/18/2007 - Randy
http://www. owendalespeedway. org/ is the Owendale site. If you go to Google search, then type in Owendale Speedway, then click on the first link, that takes you to there website. It states 2007 racing begins in May.

There phone is 'not hooked up' at this time. NOT disconnected, but 'not hooked up', so I take it as Owendale is going to be racing this year.

unless someone has a direct connection and can elaborate more.

1/16/2007 - j. yax
Are they even going to be open this year. their website is gone. ???????.
1/11/2007 - Steve Russell
Is Owendale even going to be open this year. I'm not sure who said it but owendale and mid michigan are the only tracks that run limited lates, crystal runs pro stocks, rules are alot different. Billy do you plan on running the full schedule at mt. pleasant, i talked to joe he is going to run crystal full time.

10/24/2006 - Race Fan
i hope they get it together this year. i want to see murawski win some races in that late model they got. its good to see him step it up unlike some. the rules, it would be nice if they got them on time for you drivers. now that only crystal , owendale are about the only ones running limited late models they should pay more then crystal and see if they get the mt plesant car to come?? put up good money to win & start and owendale should get some cars.

i would think.
10/10/2006 - Emily
Anyone know if Owendale is keeping the sportsman class and if they are changing thier street stock rules like a lot of the other tracks?.
9/16/2006 - Scott Buehrly
No problem Billy now we need to get some of the new car on here.
9/12/2006 - Bill Murawski Jr.

9/11/2006 - Scott Buehrly

5/2/2006 - Sean Fitzgerald
I received this after contacting Owendale online. Hearsay is dangerous. Yes, the track up and running. Test and tune is May 6 and Opening night is May 13. Hope to see you there.

4/28/2006 - Randy Adam
If you go to google, type in Owendale Speedway, then click on the first find, it will take you to the Owendale Speedway website. It states test and tune May 6th and first night of racing May 13th. 2006 rules are posted on that site as well. There is a phone # on there as well.

4/28/2006 - Randy Adam
989-678-4447 is the Owendale Speedway hotline, says test and tune on May 6th opening night May 13th.
4/18/2006 - Scott Buehrly
Race fan your right on with the respecting the drivers idea. You talk mainly about the limited class but the street stockers are the ones who keep the track alive and the are the ones that get the least respect. To start the feature in the street stock class you get $15. 00 any and every other track Ive been to the least Ive got was $25. 00 which was your pit pass back now I know nobady is in the racing for the money but, You need to do better than $15 start money the only thing keeping all those street stock at owendale is lack of another track! The street stockers on most nights have a much cleaner show than the lates yet they are the ones that get time shortenedand the limiteds can run for an hour.

They have half as many cars in thier classes feature race and most nights it takes twice as long as the street stock feature. As for #09 coming back to owendale as much as I love to watch billy race he deserves better as does most of those drivers at owendale but they race there because it is the closest track around We will all go back year after year but every year owendale loses more and more of their drivers to better tracks they need to cater more to the people that keep them in business but if you ask mary she makes no money!.
4/17/2006 - Race Fan
the owendale speedway will be open. i talk to ray pettit. if they dont start paying more to the drivers it sounds like, they are not going to have alot of cars in the limmited class? fans say they dont like all yellow flags all night!! big down fall. they only get about 45 to 50 cars and it takes them sometimes 5 hours to run a 2 1/2 hour show tops. they need to really start taking better care of the drivers putting on the show.

i do like going to see the limiteds run. i heard that the former 09 car is comeing back with a new # and new look. i am looking forward to seeing the new look. or will he go back to mt,p speedway? thanks race fan.



4/17/2006 - BILL CAPS
I WENT ON THAT SITE AND COULDNT EVEN FIND ANYTHING ABOUT THEM. I TALKED TO A GUY THAT WORKED THERE AND HE SAID THEY WERE HISTORY. ALL DONE.
4/7/2006 - Randy Adam
According to the website, they ARE racing in 2006. go to www. owendalespeedway. org and you can see 2006 rules have been posted. Says opening night is 5-6-06.

11/17/2005 - Race Fan
I miss some of the drivers that left the speedway this year. Goretski 00, Murawski 09, Gembarski 21, Simmions 2, Tripkoski 9, Palmaroy 24, Hurly 58. The 5 team is killing the speedway. I would like to see some of the old drivers back, to put on a good show.

10/27/2005 - Dave Mellendorf
Does anyone have any of the old videos from Owendale? Or photos/programs from 1985-1994. Im interested mostly in the open wheel class, late models, and demo derby cars that were at Owendale. Owendale is having their awards banquet in November so as far as I know they are a go for 2006 but I haved not talked to the owner at all. If I hear anything Ill pass it along.

8/22/2005 - Scott Buehrly
Going to the track is one of the best times you can have in the thumb on the weekend. unfortunatly prices are a little high if you wanna take your whole family and you go home pretty dirty most nights.

but overall car count is pretty good. concession prices are reasonable.

and they give you a pretty good show for your dollar.
10/19/2004 - Randy Adam
Ive got to say, this place hasnt changed a bit in 20 years. Even the front strech stands are the same old bleachers. And bring your dust mask if youre going to go to the Saturday night races.

it is real dirt racing. but they car turn out is great.

Ill be back there again next year as well.
