Built in 1961 the original track was 1/5 mile in size with a large ½ mile horse track on the outside. Called the Alta Speed Bowl this race track continued until the mid to late 60’s under the direction of Buena Vista County Fair Board. Buena Vista Raceway then took shape to its’ current 3/8 mile high banked shape.
Since exploding onto the racing scene in 1979, the IMCA Modifieds have become the calling card of IMCA, thrilling legions of new race fans every year. These high-flying, open-wheel stock cars push the limits of power and excitement on short tracks from coast to coast. Racing in front of millions of spectators each year, IMCA Modifieds have gained a reputation for fierce competitiveness that is as unique as the car itself.

IMCA Sport Compact
A barebones class, truly entry level, the IMCA Sport Compacts are not race cars, they are cars that race.They can be purchased off the street or at a salvage yard. Then you gut them, put in the safety equipment and go racing. This division is for younger drivers, not those that want to get out of late models or modifieds. It’s perfect for kids in high school, as there is a minimum age of 14. No one in this division can be licensed to compete in any other IMCA division.
