The Southern Oregon Racing Hall Of Fame

Southern Oregon Racing History

Within the Medford area, had multiple tracks going back nearly 100 years to the fairgrounds track.  Ashland Speedway operated from 1949-1960.  In the 1950ís, there was the track near the airport and the famed Posse Grounds track.  There was also the White City track that operated  in the 1960ís.  The Posse Grounds operated until 1989, and Southern Oregon Speedway opened in 1996 to continue the great tradition of dirt track racing in the area.

We are proud to begin a new, and long overdue tradition of celebrating all of the people who have made the sport as special as it is.  Our Hall Of Fame is here to honor those who have paved the way for us to enjoy the sport that we love.  This year, we induct our first class of seven.  Within this group, we have people who have excelled in racing, building and maintaining cars, building engines and promoting.
