HistoryEdit

In 2009, the track essentially closed with only a single racing event taking place on the track. The PASS South Super Late Model Series held one of their points races at the track on September 26, 2009. A USARacing Pro Cup event had been scheduled for August 15, 2009, but it was canceled by the series and replaced by a second race at Langley Speedway.

On Friday, October 7, 2011, Southern National Raceway Park was put up for auction, and was bought by Michael Diaz of Northern Virginia for $650,000. Plans for the track are currently pending.

March 3, 2012 will be open for business and running their first race, a NASCAR Whelen late model series.

The track re-opened in 2013 as Southern National Motorsports Park with a regular racing schedule.

In December 2015, the track was added to the racing simulation site iRacing.com.
