Improvements to the HCS Racing Surface
In 2021, during track prep for the Inaugural Spring Showdown Demolition Derby, we started taking wall sections to build the derby arena. The track looked so nice without the wall and a lot less dangerous that we decided not to replace it. And so began removal of the wall.

During the 2022 Hamilton County Fair we decided to move the front-stretch wall for the figure-8 and UTV/ATV races. Once again, given the tremendous job by Mark and Andy, we decided it looked very nice and made the spectator viewing even better, that we made the decision to not put the wall back. It definitely made the racing better as drivers did not get pinched into the wall.

We have heard that we have done a great job at getting the track banking very even and nice. But during this past season the top in turns 1-2 seemed to be dominant. Accompanied with the wall in those turns, the dirt always seemed to make a big cushion, making it the fastest way around the track.

This change will definitely change the racing, and some drivers may fear going up to the high side of the track.

The job is not completely done, yet. We will have wall sections coming off the wall by the signs, heading to the west to keep cars from the river. We feel this will bring two- and three-wide racing back to the Hamilton County Speedway.

In addition to the top of the track, we will have a ten-foot flat area run-off for cars that go off the top of the track. No more jumping the wall. Once again removing the wall makes it look so much nicer in that area.

Opening in July 1910, the Karl Chevrolet Hamilton County Speedway is the oldest speedway in the state of Iowa. In 1938, work began on the current location at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds. The semi-banked half-mile dirt track was completed in the spring of 1939, and the first races were held on the track in September of that year.

The Karl Chevrolet Hamilton County Speedway is located off US 20 at exit 140, then 1.2 miles north, then 0.5 mile east on Bank St., then 0.4 mile south on Bluff St. to the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Webster City, Iowa. The physical address is 1200 Bluff St, Webster City, IA 50595.
