RADFORD, Va. – In a strategic agreement, Motor Mile Speedway and Dragway has partnered with the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience on a multi-year track lease.

The new deal is aimed at enhancing existing race programs and expanding entertainment offerings at the Radford, Va., motorsports venue.

Under the agreement, which includes the multi-year lease, RWRE will assume control of venue operations, with Motor Mile Speedway & Dragway becoming the home track of the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience and its companion companies, including the acclaimed Pure Speed Drag Racing Experience.

“Motor Mile Speedway & Dragway is one of the finest grassroots motorsports facilities in the nation. We’re excited to confirm a full schedule of racing and could not have picked a better home track for The Rusty Wallace Racing Experience and Pure Speed Drag Racing Experience,” said NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace. “The opportunity to call this amazing short track home for our more advanced programs has us primed for 2021 today. I can’t wait to get up there in the spring.”

“This is an exciting time for the future of Motor Mile Speedway & Dragway,” said David Hagan, the owner of Motor Mile Speedway and Dragway. “The vision offered by RWRE ensures that the venue will continue to build on its rich past and remain a leading motorsports destination for years to come.”

RWRE is the largest racing school in the country, offering NASCAR-style driving experiences at over 80 tracks in the United States and Canada. Founded in 2005, the North Carolina based company boasts a diverse collection of driving schools.

“We want to thank David Hagan and the staff of Motor Mile Speedway and Dragway for welcoming us with open arms. From the traditional events already in place to the entertainment opportunities only RWRE can provide, we believe there is tremendous potential for growth here and we are ready for action this spring,” said Mark Ebert, President and CEO of RWRE. “We can’t wait to combine the amazing facility at Motor Mile with a full slate of racing on the oval and dragstrip plus the interactive opportunities for the fans to get behind the wheel of a NASCAR style Late Model, rear engine dragster or into one of our racing go-karts.

“Motor Mile will truly be a one of a kind motorsports facility.”
