Brief History: Macon Speedway was built in 1946 by Wayne Webb on the site of a brick factory on Macon’s West side. It has been in continuous operation since its inception. The facilities have undergone many changes over the years, but the track’s size has remained the same since it was built. The track has been stated as both 1/4 (.25) Mile and 1/5 (.20) Mile at different times. It has been touted as “The World’s fastest 1/5th mile dirt track” for many years. It was also formerly known as “The Other Brickyard.” “Other” being a reference to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s nickname, and “Brickyard” due to buried bricks rising up to the tracks surface from time to time. Many “famous” drivers on dirt have been to Macon at one time or another.
