Former Peach State Speedway to be ‘flipped’
With a ‘to-do list’ seemingly longer than the half-mile racing surface at Gresham Motorsports Park, Dan Elliott and the speedway’s new management team have their work cut out for them in refurbishing the former Peach State Speedway.
“We’ve done extremely well to accomplish the things we have in the time we’ve done it in,” stated Elliott, the General Manager of the Jefferson racetrack. “We’ve got most of the demolition we can do done and we’re waiting for the permits to get finalized. It’s kind of like a rain delay in racing. You’re waiting for the race to start and you can’t wait to get in and get it done.

The 40-year old facility, formerly named Peach State Speedway, is undergoing renovations that will give the track a new look for race fans when it reopens this fall. Photos by Brandon Reed
