    Bubba TurnerAfter purchasing Roxboro Motorsports earlier this year the new owner’s Jr Ward and Danny Grizzard have made lots of improvements. One of the first things that they did was hire Southeast Grinding and Grooving to make major improvements to the racing surface. All the bumps and imperfect problems are now gone. The racing surface is now very smooth. Along with the grinding the restrooms have been redone. There is also all new timing equipment in place. These are just some of the upgrades and the new owners are planning several more upgrades.

    General admission is $15.00 with children 12 and under free. For more information please visit
