Peach State Speedway Listed For Sale by Matt Kentfield
53-Acre Complex Listed For Sale In Local Newspaper
In 2006, Paul Kegel purchased the half-mile Peach State Speedway in Jefferson, Georgia and had multiple plans to ensure the current strength and future growth of the half-mile track and surrounding facility. At the time, the track, also the home track of the Georgia Asphalt Series Pro Late Model tour, was planned for an expansion of the racing surface, a new d-shaped configuration and more fan-friendly surroundings.
Now, however, it seems that Kegel's plan for the facility will need to be carried out by another owner, if at all. The Athens Banner-Herald (GA) newspaper Tuesday morning printed a classified ad listing the half-mile Peach State Speedway and the entire property it sits on as for sale.
The track has been in existence since 1967. Over the years, what is now Peach State Speedway had been called both Jefco Speedway and Georgia International Speedway.
Peach State Speedway also hosts the United Sprint Car Series, Vintage Racing Association and a number of other special events including car shows and swap meets. The season ends in November with the running of the prestigious World Crown 300.
