Freedom Hall is located on the grounds of the Kentucky Exposition Center, which opened in 1956. There have been three different tracks in Freedom Hall, concrete oval, dirt figure-8, and dirt oval.

Even more impressive is the fact that there have been seven tracks located on the grounds. Besides the three in Freedom Hall, there were three outdoor tracks and an indoor track in another building. An eighth track will be debuting in 2017.

The arena seats 18,865 and has had crowds of over 20,000. The Kentucky Colonials ABA professional basketball team played home games here, winning the championship in 1974-75.

Just 12 days before Four Cylinder Stock Cars raced on the dirt, the President of the United States gave a speech in the hall.

Smoke and fumes are a concern at most indoor races.
