Calhoun County Speedway reopened in 2004 and several improvements have been made to the venue, including blacktop staging in spectator areas as well as new lighting around the track and in the pits. The bleachers in the pits were replaced to provide better track visibility. The kitchen received better equipment to offer a wider range of concessions. The transponder system was replaced and new fencing was set throughout the grounds.

"This is a premier track," said track owner Jim Leisure. "It's one of the best-kept secrets in short-track racing."

The newly renovated facility is looking forward to the 2nd year with the ASALMS, one of the nation's premier short-track series, for a special night of racing. The highly anticipated event will include a 100-lap ASA LMS feature; 'The Snap-on Tools 100,' the ASA LMS 25-lap GM Performance Shoot-out, Legend cars, and plenty of family-fun and entertainment. Fans will also have the unique opportunity to meet their favorite up-and-coming ASA LMS drivers in the on-track autograph session.

A few points of interest for fans will be Livernois Motorsports will be set up in the fan area to Dyno cars for fans for performance stats and just for fun. Snap-on Tools will have a midway display set up.
