Dominion Raceway is a 4/10 mile (0.64 km) track which currently operates in Thornburg, Virginia.

The track was formerly located in Manassas, Virginia and was known as Old Dominion Speedway. The track closed in 2012 after frequent noise complaints from neighbors, which prompted owner Steve Britt to search for a new location.

Track closureEdit

In July 2006, it was announced that the track had been sold and would be torn down because some new houses were to be built there. Some Manassas residents believe that the Fairgrounds are next. Rumors have been circulating that there will be no 2007 season; that 2006 will be the last. Those rumors have not been confirmed. -- The track has remained open for 2007, 2008, 2009, and has 2010's schedule posted on its website. The real estate downturn helped to save the track from the developer's axe.
