Berlin Raceway

Berlin Raceway

In 1950 Chester Mysliwiec and family started a racing tradition. Berlin Raceway, as he named it, has seen it all through the years. From its humble dirt track beginnings, Berlin Raceway, now a 7/16 mile paved oval with 13-degree banking in the turns and 9 degree banking on the straightaways, has grown into one of the premier short tracks in America. Berlin Raceway has one of the strongest fan bases for grass roots racing in the nation. Berlin has packed in thousands of race fans a year for over 50 years. Not only have race fans of all ages enjoyed the track, but drivers like Tim Steele, Jack Sprague and Bob Senneker have honed their driving skills on what Johnny Benson Jr. claims as "one of the most difficult tracks in the country." In 2001, the West Michigan Whitecaps purchased the track and invested funds in the infrastructure, building new restrooms, a new sound system, new private party areas, new catch fence and other amenities to make Berlin Raceway not only the premier facility in the Midwest, but also the most fan-friendly. The racing hasn't suffered either. With partners like NASCAR driver Johnny Benson, Berlin Raceway has kept the racing extremely competitive and exciting. Celebrity drivers such as NASCAR stars Tony Stewart, Michael Waltrip, Bobby Labonte, Kenny Schrader, Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman have joined Benson in racing at Berlin recently.
