Tour the racetracks on the APEX Motorsport circuit

The racetracks selected for APEX Motorsport events will challenge your driving skills and provide the ultimate on-track experience.


Gateway Motorsport Park

700 Raceway Blvd., Madison, IL 62060

 

Gateway Motorsport Park, located just east of downtown St. Louis is the largest outdoor entertainment facility in the region encompassing a 1/4 mile NHRA-sanctioned drag strip, a 1.25 mile NASCAR oval track, a 1.6 mile road course, and a newly built world class karting facility.

 

Gateway Motorsports Park has a rich and storied history with a future that is built on the foundation of introducing St. Louis area race fans to new and exciting forms of sports entertainment.

 

Wayne Meinert first developed the original St. Louis Raceway Park in 1967 as a simple, 1/8 –mile drag strip. Four years later, following the acquisition of additional land, he expanded the racing surface to a quarter mile and renamed the facility St. Louis International Raceway.


Gingerman Raceway

61414 County Road 388, South Haven, MI 49090

 

The GingerMan Raceway was established in 1995 by racing enthusiast Daniel Schnitta. Dan knew what was important to him as a driver when visiting a race track. His vision is to share that experience with visitors and their families.

 

The GingerMan is located in the appealing lakeshore town of South Haven, Michigan. Rather than spending your trip to the track in isolation visitors are just six miles away from the beach, boutiques, events and dining that are common to any beachside community.

 

Their facilities rest on more than 300 acres of land that includes sprawling areas of a shaded wood, plenty of paddock space and a pond fully stocked with fish. They believe that visitors to GingerMan should feel the comfort of a state park.

 

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of GingerMan is Their dedication to the safety of the driver. The course layout was designed to minimize the chance of damaging yourself or your vehicle. GingerMan is considered the safest track in the region and among the safest of tracks in the nation. This makes them perfectly suited for both the novice driver who is learning the ropes and the advanced driver who is pushing the threshold.

 


Blackhawk Farms Raceway

15538 Prairie Road, South Beloit, Illinois 61080

 

Blackhawk Farms is a 1.95-mile private circuit racetrack located just outside South Beloit, Illinois, on a 219-acre farm on the border between Wisconsin and Illinois.  Blackhawk Farms was established in1967, about a decade after nearby Road America.

Blackhawk Farms was designed by Jerry Dunbar and built in 1967 by Tito and Marcia Nappi. The Nappi’s owned and operated the track until its sale in 1986 to Mike and Raymond Irwin. The track was maintained and operated by the Irwins until its sale in August 2007 to Paul Musschoot, a local businessman and longtime SCCA racer and technical inspector. In 2008, many improvements were made to the track site including a brand new tech building and Kohler sponsored bathroom facility. Additional improvements included reducing the property’s water table with added drainage and an onsite Frisby Performance tire dealer.

The track currently hosts events for the Midwestern Council, SCCA, VSCDA, and SVRA.
