About Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park:
Tucked away in the beautiful countryside of Northeastern Connecticut, Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP) is the home of a historic raceway, modern roadrace circuit, and a classic 18-hole golf course. Owned and operated by the Hoenig family for four generations, the property became a racetrack in 1939, thanks in part to the devastation left behind by the 1938 hurricane known as the “Long Island Express.”
The historic 5/8-mile high banked oval hosts a number of annual NASCAR stock car and open wheel racing events, including the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR Whelen All American Series. The new 1.7 mile road course is the rebirth of the first purpose-built closed-circuit road racing track in the United States.
Just 50 minutes from downtown Boston, 2.5 hours from New York City, and 40 minutes from Hartford and Providence. thompsonspeedway.com
