Caffeine and Octane's Lanier Raceway[1] (formerly Lanier Raceplex and Lanier National Speedway) is a 0.375-mile paved oval racetrack located just outside Braselton, Georgia. The track opened in 1982 as a dirt track, and was paved in the mid-1980s. It is currently owned and operated by High Octane, LLC, an auto events & multimedia business conglomerate. The track was under the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series banner with super late models, SuperTrucks, Junkyard Dogs, outlaw late models, mini stocks, INEX RaceCeiver/zMax legends cars and INEX bandolero cars. The track ended weekly racing at the end of the 2011 season, but remained open for larger events. In 2022, High Octane resumed weekly car events at the raceway for the first time since 2011.

The Pro All Star Series hosted a national super late model event at Lanier on November 15–16, 2019. This served as the PASS National Championship final.

[2] On 1 January 2022 it was reported that the track had been sold to Caffeine and Octane.[3] C&O's Lanier Raceway is located across from the NASCAR owned Road Atlanta motor racing circuit.

History

In 2014, Lanier National Speedway was purchased by Jim Downing and renamed "Lanier Raceplex". The new venue was to host concerts and serve as a race track [4] August 12 photos emerged showing the infield walls, buildings, and facilities being razed in preparation for a complete "black lake" paving job of the entire infield and oval. Track amenities also received major renovations. The track reopened January 2016 and features "arrive and drive" karting, as well as hosting oval track (legends series), and drift events.

In 2021, the Lanier Raceplex functioned as an arrive and drive go-kart track and is hosted a four-race legends car series in July that was broadcast on NBC Sports Gold Trackpass. A ten race series was also held for arrive and drive go karts that year.

In 2022, the now-formerly Lanier Raceplex was sold to High Octane Events, a multimedia motorsports event business headquartered in Atlanta, GA who also own the largest monthly car show in the world,[5] Caffeine and Octane. C&O announced it intends to create a more actively used event space for drifting, racing, burnouts, car meets and other auto events with all makes and models of cars. Caffeine and Octane has resumed weekly events at the Lanier Raceway, including Friday Night Drift with Federico Sceriffo, a professional drifter in the Formula D league, for the first time since 2011.
