Texas World Speedway was built in 1969 and was one of only eight Super Speedways of two miles or greater in the United States, the others being Indianapolis, Ontario, Daytona, Pocono, Talladega, California, and Michigan. TWS is located on approximately 600 acres (2.4 km²) on Texas State Highway 6 in College Station, Texas. There is a 2 mile oval, and several road course configurations. The last major race occurred at the track in 1981.
During the 1980s the track fell into a state of disrepair, and both NASCAR and the Indycar series chose to drop it from the schedule. It continued to operate in a limited role for amateur racing. In 1993, the track reopened after a repaving and moderate refurbishment. It hosted a race for the ARCA series but due to the lack of modern facilities and ammenities, it has since served as a circuit for amateur and club racing, along with private testing.
