Race City: 21 Years of Racing History

It has been a pleasure to be part of 21 years of Racing history in Calgary. race City will be missed!

Race City, Calgary, Alberta.     We regret to inform that at 1:00pm Tuesday Sept 9th, 2008, all racing operations by Calgary International Speedway  Inc., the operating company for Race City, are suspended until further notice. All scheduled racing events for the remainder of the 2008 season  have been canceled.

We would like to thank all our Volunteers, Staff, Fans, Sanctioning Bodies, Sponsors and Racers who have supported us through the last three years  of operation. CIS set out to save racing in Calgary after the announced closure of Race City in 2005. Unfortunately, the rainy weather and lack of  major sponsorship support and low spectator counts to pay for the racing events that have been held at Race City over the last few years has left  us with no choice but to cancel all racing and shut down operations.

All rental operations under Speedway Track Rentals Inc. are still in effect.

Race City Inc. will resume with business operations for the remainder of 2008 and beyond. Art MacKenzie of Race City Inc. is in the process of  deciding what racing events and rentals will be held at the facility for the 2009 season. Please see www.racecity.com or call 403-272-7223, for  further information.
