Wisconsin Auto Racing
Wisconsin has a long history of auto racing. The first self-propelled highway vehicle in the United States was the Spark, a steam-powered buggy built in Racine in 1871 by John Carhart, honored at the 1908 Paris International Automobile Exposition as the "Father of Automobiles.". The first vehicle race was held in Wisconsin in 1878 and ran from Green Bay to Madison through Janesville. The winner won $5,000 from the Wisconsin legislature. This directory will list all types of auto racing tracks, oval, drag, dirt and road course. We also have links to both "What to Do in Wisconsin" directories that are by Wisconsin County and by Wisconsin Community. Enjoy and have fun in Wisconsin!
