Info

The Stardust International Raceway was an auto racing track in present-day Spring Valley, Nevada, in the Las Vegas Valley. It featured a flat, 3-mile (4.8 km), 13-turn road course, and a quarter-mile drag strip. It was built in 1965 by the Stardust Hotel and Casino to attract high rollers to the hotel. In 1966 it began hosting the season finale of the Can-Am championship. In 1968 the USAC Championship Car series held a race at Stardust. The hotel was sold in 1969, and the new owners largely abandoned the track. Larry Horten, the track's manager, leased the land and ran drag racing events until 1970. Real estate developers Pardee Homes bought the land and built the Spring Valley community on it. Afterwards, a replacement track, the Las Vegas Speedrome, opened in 1972 across from Nellis Air Force Base, and later became today's Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
