The Dixie Speedway in Birch Run MI has under gone a massive transformation. It is now a very high-banked 4/10 mile oval and on Thursday July 3 the fastest speeds ever recorded will happen. This long time track has gone through these changes do to the dedication of track owners Mike and Krista Kern.
