Dixie Speedway is a 3/8 mile clay oval in Woodstock, Georgia. Located 30 miles north of downtown Atlanta, the track features over 5,000 permanent seats on a 150 acre property.

Opened in 1968, the venue has been owned by Mickey and Martha Swims since 1976.[1]

Touring series that visit the speedway include American Flat Track and the Late Model Dirt Series by Lucas Oil.[2] The track also holds a season-opening doubleheader, the Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals, in cooperation with nearby Rome Speedway.[3]
