As one of fewer than 60 NASCAR-sanctioned short tracks in the United States, Holland Motorsports Complex peels through its 53rd season while fueling summer months with the hum of horsepower. Drivers from across the Northeast descend upon the well-traveled hippodrome to compete in points standings, letting fans clock future NASCAR speeders before they move onto the national stage or decide to have the lead permanently removed from their feet for health reasons. Weekly events, such as the Whelen All-American Series, rev the engines of onlookers throughout the season, and at season’s end, a national champion will be crowned from a field of 10 regional champs.
Constructed in 1960, Holland Motorsports Complex has grown over the years and is now capable of packing up to 7,000 visitors into its grandstands. The 3/8-mile oval buzzes with contention, and off the track, the Midway buzzes with conversation, as fans gather to sip drinks, munch snacks, and discuss the pros and cons of making drivers pay tolls before entering pits.
Holland NASCAR Motorsports Complex
There are more than 2,000 short tracks in the United States. Among them, fewer than 60 are NASCAR-sanctioned. Holland NASCAR Motorsports Complex is one of the few with such distinction. The raceway has guzzled the fumes of that rarified air since 1960, when it was built as a 1/3-mile facility surrounded by just 1,200 seats. In 1964, the course expanded to 3/8 mile, and four years later, asphalt replaced the outdated shag carpeting as the track's surface. Today, Holland packs up to 7,000 spectators into its grandstands. It completes the race-day experience with various amenities, including The Midway, where fans can fuel up on snacks and drinks, and The Village, where fans party under large tents and around picnic tables.
