Willow Springs International Raceway is the oldest purpose-built road course in North America. Known as 'The Fastest Road in the West,' it is a track where a production car on street tires can post an average lap speed of 100 mph through its nine high-speed turns, with cornering speeds ranging from about 70 mph to over 170 mph, with straightaway speeds of 200 mph possible with very fast race cars.

There are five other tracks that are part of the Willow Springs facility, but the main road course has existed in its current configuration since 1953.
