“The World’s Fastest Dirt Track” is on the market
Volunteer Speedway is a high-banked dirt track in Bulls Gap, Tennessee. The track is a bullring 4/10-mile oval.
Built in 1973 and opened in 1974, the track is known as, “The World’s Fastest Dirt Track.” The banking sits at a steep 32 degrees.
In Summer 2019, Landon Stallard purchased the facility from Joe and Phyllis Loven. Stallard had been visiting the track as a spectator since the age of 10.
He put a fresh coat of paint on the walls and grandstands then welcomed race fans back to the famed race track.
2021 Traveling Series: The track is set to host the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series, Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series and the Xtreme DIRTcar Series in 2021.
The track hasn’t yet appeared on the real estate listings. However, pictures were posted by Tennessee/Florida real estate agent Okheir Kheir via social media.
Track owner Landon Stallard comments
“After months of hard thinking and lots of prayers I’ve made the decision to put the Gap up for sale,” Landon Stallard stated.
“It’s definitely a hard choice seeing I’ve put my heart and soul into the place to make it the best it could be for the fans and the teams. I know this decision won’t be well accepted.”
“I’ve gave it my all, but there’s not enough hours in the day for me to spend what time is needed for my construction business which I have to make my first priority for me and my kids future.”
“I want to thank all the fans, sponsors, race teams, my great staff,community and last but not least God for the opportunity. We will continue to operate until sold.”
Stallard added, “Please stay tuned to the tracks page for announcements. I’m confident someone will end up with it that can carry on what we have going well into the future. I’ve already received hundreds of messages and I’ll try to respond.”
