The McKean County Fair Raceway is located at the County Fairgrounds.

Recently discovered information indicates this might be the oldest active auto racing facility in the world, with the first race held in 1900.

The .355 mile dirt oval was opened in 1983. In this picture, you can see the remains of the old half mile oval that was last used for auto racing in the 1950s.

Beautiful new aluminum grandstands make watching a race at this track a pleasure. This picture was from a 2017 visit.

This is the old wooden covered grandstand that was in place during my first visit in 1986.
