Directions to Track



Highland Speedway’s Insurance Carrier requires that anyone under the age of 18 entering the pit area have a completed Minor Release Form on file. Waiver must be filled out in 2024. 

One parent signature is not enough to get the minor in the pits.

Both parents and/or guardians must sign for the minor to enter the pits.

 Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents and friends are not allowed  to sign a minor release form.
All minor drivers MUST have both parent signatures on their minor release form 
before the minor driver will be allowed on the track.

These forms require signature by BOTH PARENTS OR GUARDIANS of the minor. Once the completed form is submitted at the Speedway Office/Pit Shack, the minor
simply signs in each week.

Visit the Pit Shack on Saturday to obtain your Minor Release Form! If you take the form with you to be signed, the signatures of the parents or guardians MUST be notarized.

If you prefer to have a Minor Release Form mailed to you, or for additional information, please feel free to contact the Speedway Office at (618) 654-6656.
