Galesburg Speedway has been offering Southwest Michigan with some of the finest and most action packed racing for over fifty-five years. As the sport of auto racing continues to grow, Galesburg Speedway is still bringing the most exciting racing that has ever been seen.
Galesburg Speedway has always been the family track and it still remains that way. The Beebe Family built the speedway in 1947 as a dirt track. The Speedway went through many improvements over the years which has helped it evolve into an asphault oval.
In 1998, when the Warning Family took over ownership from The Bloomfield Family, improvements continue to be made including several new special events and a strong emphasis on family and fun. The track owner Ralph Warning has been around racing his whole life and has always dreamed of owning a race track. Ralph grew up in the Otsego area as he helped the VanSparentackís, Martinís, Harringtonís, Williamís and Blanchardís on their racers and raced himself in 1976. He worked for Tri-Sac as a Race Director when they were a sanction in the Midwest in the mid 1970ís. Ralph has been in business for himself for 25 years. He has 4 children, oldest daughter Jeana Warning, twin daughters Lisa & Lori Warning and son Ryan Warning. All four children were raised around racing and the daughters have followed racing very closely as their brother Ryan raced for 5 years at Kalamazoo Speedway and 1 year at M-40 Motor sports Arena. We at Galesburg Speedway welcome everyone to our race track. See your faces at the races!!!
