The Lee County Fair Board along with the Lee County Speedway Race Board is working to build a new building in the pits for the 2017 race season. This 24′ x 40′ building will contain a new kitchen and bathrooms including showers. We have had one rather large sponsor step up and make an offer of $5000 if we can raise matching funds. If anyone would like to see their name on a donor plaque that will forever be on this building, see Marcie in the pit shack this weekend. She would love to take your money! Let’s work together to get rid of those port-a-pottys once and for all! As always, Thank you for supporting the Lee County Speedway!
