Norway Speedway, located in Norway, Michigan, is a one-third mile asphalt oval track that is slightly banked.[3] Norway Speedway began as a dirt track in 1942 and was paved in 1978.[4] The track held American Speed Association sanction before the sanctioning body closed.[4] The track holds stock car races on Friday nights from mid-May through Labor Day Weekend which is the weekend of the Dickinson County Fair. The fair has games, carnival rides, a demolition derby, and a livestock building filled with animals. Events include the Auto-Value Challenge Series, Race to a Cure Cancer, the Stateline Challenge and the Labor Day 100 championship race held during the Dickinson County Fair. The ARCA Midwest Tour,[5] Mid-American Stock Car Series,[6] and the TUNDRA Super Late Models[7] have raced at the track.

The speedway has five divisions:

  • Late Models
  • Sportsman
  • Super Stocks
  • Stock 4 cylinders
  • Wisconsin Sport Trucks (bi-weekly)

The speedway is located at the Dickinson County fairgrounds along U.S. Route 8.[8]
