Monadnock Speedway is a paved 1/4 mile oval track in Winchester, New Hampshire. Located south of Keene, the track is nestled between NH 10 and the Ashuelot River.

The track hosts various races for regional touring series, including the Valenti Modified Racing Series, the Granite State Pro Stock Tour, the Northeastern Midget Association and NEMA Lites, and ISMA Supermodifieds.[1]

History[edit]

The venue was owned by Larry Cirillo and Fred Pafumi from 1984 to 2018. Cirillo made the decision to purchase the track after taking the win in a season-ending 100-lap modified race in September of the previous year.[2]

In late 2018, Cirillo and Pafumi reached an agreement to sell the track to Nashua-based businessman Norman Wrenn Jr. after ironing out applications for various permits and licenses.[2] Improvements to the property, including replacement of all bleachers, was announced alongside the sale. Longtime employee Michelle Cloutier was kept on as operations manager, and former racer Jeff Zuidema was brought on as a special advisor. Zuidema was previously employed as director of competition for Thompson Speedway, before stepping down in 2014.[3]
