Aquasco Speedway

Aquasco Speedway

Aquasco Speedway, no longer in operation, was the first quarter-mile dragstrip on the United States East Coast. It was built in the mid-1950s and was home to the President's Cup Nationals, which are now held at Maryland International Raceway. Richard Petty, Shirley Muldowney, Don Prudhomme, Bunny Burkett are among some of the great drag racers who raced on the now defunct speedway.

To date, the land still exists. Aquasco Speedway sits in Aquasco, Maryland, untouched and unvandalized. The track was shut down in the 1970s.

In the late '80s, the American Motocross Association leased the land and build a small track there. No formal sanctioned events were held there.
