Milton Speedway

 

Formerly known as Catamount Stadium, then the Milton Speedway, the track was once the only legal dragstrip in the state of Vermont. The speedway held its first race in 1963 and as the sport gained popularity, people from all over Canada and New England would gather to watch the “backyard engineered” cars race around the dirt. At its peak, the Milton Speedway hosted many famous racers and engineers, both local and regional. The modified dragsters soon became too fast for the speedway and the track closed in 1971. The Milton Speedway was recognized with a plaque as a state historical site in 2019.
