    Taylorsville Speedway

    Does anyone have any info on the old Taylorsville Speedway or Southern Thunder Speedway? We are figurin on moving to the area and it looks to be a nice facility.

    Taylorsville or Southern Thunder has not raced since around 2002. The track is still there but probably is in shambles by now. It was a great little "Bull Ring" when it was running. The last promoter to run the track is now a track official at Friendship Speedway in Elkin, Nc... I think he is a member on this board and goes by STSNitro.....

    yes i did run the place from 2000-2004 then had to step down and the place is in shambels now,but it was a awsome little track ,the track record when i left was a everett dunlap in a steel head late model on d 55 spec tires with a time of 13.12 and the track was just a tick bigger the 1/4 mile with 26% of banking talk about exciting with 12 to 15 latemodels on it never a dull moment

    It was a blast, I won a lot of races at that place, right against the outside, and Jerry did a great job running the place. Shame it will probably never be raced on again. looks like Friendship will be your track if you're moving down, not a bad drive from Taylorsville.

    Antioch is the closest at 32 miles. Friendship is 59 miles. East Lincoln is 62 miles. So is Cleveland County Speedway. Carloina in Gastonia is 69 miles. Harris is 82 miles. Cherokee is 85 miles. 311 is 90 miles. Rolling Thunder is 92 miles. And finally Wythe is 132 miles.
    All distances measured from the center of Taylorsville to the track using Google earth routing. I know there are shortcuts to all the tracks, so don't go off the deepend. Frankly If it were me I would have fun going to all the tracks. Heck I have been to all of them execpt Harris, Antioch and Rolling Thunder this year. 311 has lights to die for. but the best racing I have seen this year top to bottom has been at East Lincoln.
