Track History
New Mexico features breathtaking landscapes at every turn and Vado Speedway Park (pronounced Vah-Doe) is no exception. Designed in part by 2004 Series Champion Scott Bloomquist, the multi-million-dollar facility sits near the base of the 9,000-foot Organ Mountains, delivering the most spectacular view of any dirt track in the country. Paved fan parking, concrete midways, concrete pit pads, stadium quality suites, modern restrooms and concessions, Musco lighting, aluminum seating with wide aisleways and level camping just a short walk to the pits and grandstands only begin to paint the picture. Reaction to the 3/8-mile clay oval — located off Interstate 10 between Las Cruces, N.M. and El Paso, Texas — has been every bit as positive as the staff was hoping for.
