Evans Mills Raceway Park
Established in 2018. Racing every Saturday night, May-September
Located on U.S. Route 11 just outside of Evans Mills, New York, this 3/8-mile asphalt racing facility was originally built in 1967 by the Zeigler Brothers of Boonville, New York.
Recognizing that the auto racing roots of Northern New York run deep and wide and through many generations, Lee and Peggy Gill made the decision to purchase the former Evans Mills Speedway in December of 2018. Rebranded as the Evans Mills Raceway Park, the raceway launched into its inaugural season under new ownership in 2019.
The Gills are geared for success with their business acumen and their deep connection to racing for over 35 years. By combining their racing experience and the relationships they have created through their transportation and auto parts businesses, the Gills are bringing a unique quality to this racing facility not seen previously.
The Evans Mills Raceway Parks racing season begins in early May and extends through late September with races running every Saturday night. The Raceway tower complex hosts 54 hospitality suites and the grandstand offers a seating capacity of over 3,000
