Mobile International Speedway is a 1/2 mile paved oval North American Auto racing track along U.S. Highway 90 in the Mobile County, Alabama community of Irvington. It was built by Walter "Skip" Wetjen,[1][2][3] and opened in 1965.


During the golden age of stock car racing, the track held races with the likes of Gene Tapia, Wayne Niedecken, Sr., Phil Wendt,[4][5][6] and other NASCAR drivers.[7] Longtime stock car driver Red Farmer won his 500th feature race at the track.[8]

From 1966 to 1968 the track hosted open-wheel racing and held the annual World 300 race for Supermodified racing, which attracted competitors that included notable drivers such as Bobby Allison,[9][10] Dale Hammac[11] and Armond Holley.[12]

In the 1980s, the track hosted races sanctioned by All Pro Stock, ASA, NASCAR Grand American, NASCAR All-American Challenge Series, and NASCAR All Pro Stock Car. They included drivers Donnie Allison, Rusty Wallace, Dave Mader III, Ronnie Sanders,[13] Mike Cope,[14] Freddy Fryar,[15] Junior Niedecken,[16] Jody Ridley[17] and others.[18][19][20]

More recently, the track has been home to a number of rising NASCAR and ARCA drivers including Rick Crawford, Kevin Swindell (a development driver for Ray Evernham),[21] Bubba Pollard (of Roush Racing: Driver X), Cale Gale and Grant Enfinger. Kevin Swindell holds the all-time track record.[22]

The ARCA Mobile 200 was held at the track from 2012 to 2015, all of them won by local drivers: 1 win for Cale Gale and 3 for Enfinger. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East held the Mobile 150 there in 2016. Also, the NASCAR Southeast Series hosted 9 races at Mobile International Speedway, between 1991 and 2001.

The CARS Hooters Pro Cup Series also had ran three races at the facility, between 1998 and 1999.
