Merritt Speedway is still going strong as one of the best dirt tracks in the state. This upcoming summer (2017) is going to be a huge racing season at Merritt. They have booked a big group of shows, including a couple of Sprint Car shows.

I have always enjoyed Merritt Speedway since the first time there as a spectator to working on the Don Biddle Late Model team out of Prudenville and now as a spectator again. I live in Flushing Michigan and endure the trip up and back just to enjoy the racing and great people at the track. I hope I can continue to enjoy this experience with my family and friends for several more years.

A 36-year tradition in northern Michigan, Merritt Speedway is the state’s finest clay-oval motor sports facility. The 2003 racing season is over, but you can still read the recap of this summers racing every week here! The 1/4 mile banked clay oval is located on M-55, between Houghton Lake and Lake City. Every Saturday night, over 140 drivers arrive at Merritt Speedway looking for a checkered flag victory. Merritt Speedway provides racing action in four classes including Late Models, Michigan Modifieds, Pro Trucks, and Street Stocks.
