Local race series include: 4-cylinders, a “Strictly Stock” class, “Pure Stock” class, “Street Stock” class, “Sportsman” class, “Open-Wheel Modifieds,” and Drift Racing. Touring series which frequent the facility include the “Pro-Challenge Series” as well as the Florida United Promoters Series (including Sportsman, Pro-Truck, and Legends divisions) and the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association (DAARA).
Originally constructed in the mid-1970s in an attempt to bring a different, northern feel to Southern motorsports (as opposed to the dirt tracks which typify the region), the track changed hands a number of times before being purchased by Chris and Ann Young in 2011. Attempting to bring a “family feel” into the local racing scene, the Youngs have emphasized a reduction of overhead costs and ticket prices in an effort to encourage local families to “return to the speedway” for their Saturday night entertainment. Featured in numerous local publications as well as in The New York Times the Bronson Speedway has developed a reputation for a unique and innovative approach to the racing industry including an emphasis on the integration of social media within traditional track promotions efforts.
Currently the Youngs are in the process of diversifying the use of the track, working to provide local drivers and drifters with a track to call home as well as to reopen a mudbog which fell into disuse during the frequent ownership changes of the past. In the fall of 2013, Bronson Speedway became one of the first short-tracks to enter into partnership with Humpy Wheeler‘s Speedway Benefits  group, a marketing and advertising association of more than 1,000 international short-track owners and venues seeking to gain greater negotiating authority via collective bargaining with potential suppliers and sponsors.
During the season, the Bronson Speedway typically runs events on every other weekend with special events advertised well in advance.
