Cochran Motor Speedway


Cochran Motor Speedway owner Chris Martin has made the decision to place the speedway property and business up for sale. On the opening day of a holiday weekend racing event paying a large purse to competitors from across the southeastern region, Martin announced his intentions of selling the track.

"It has been a blessing and a curse owning this track," Martin explained. "There have been some great moments and then there have been some times where I wondered why I opened the gates. It is not a business for the faint of heart."

Martin hopes that someone with a passion for dirt track racing will come along and infuse some new spirit into the operation.

"The track needs someone who can dedicate more time to operating, promoting, maintaining and developing the business," Martin added. "The right person could really make this place go."

The speedway encompasses nearly sixty acres including the 3/8ths mile dirt track that hosts this weekend's Memorial Day Shoot-Out and the recently opened 1/5th mile go kart track. There are four concession stands that will come complete and ready to operate with fryer, refrigerators, freezers, grills, warmers and stainless steel tables. All of the equipment used to prepare the tracks and operate a race night are also included (listed below).

John Deere 4440 Tractor 120HP
710 champion motor grader
420 d cat backhoe
3000 gallon kw water truck
5350 John deere tractor
3 light towers
2016 Honda four-wheeler
1 ezgo golf cart
All tractor and Track implements

There has not been any decision on how this announcement will affect the remainder of this season's schedule of events.

"We may have to see how this weekend goes," said Martin with a chuckle.

Martin will not be accepting phone calls or e-mails in regards to the sale of the business and property. He is asking that interested parties communicate through the track's PR person. Those interested are asked to e-mail for more information.
