About Speedway Motors
Speedway Motors is America’s Oldest Speed Shop® and has been a trusted source for specialty rodding and racing products and friendly expert advice for 60 years.
Founded in 1952 by “Speedy” Bill Smith – a racer and street rodder himself – Speedway Motors has grown from a one-man operation to become the world’s largest manufacturer, distributor and retailer of street rod and racing products. Our industry-leading fast delivery is the result of same-day shipping from our state-of-the-art, centrally located 500,000 sq. ft. headquarters. Speedway Motors' size offers customers unmatched product selection and low pricing, while our excellent technical support and customer service have made us a recognized leader in the rodding and racing industries.
Speedway Motors has always been a family owned company. In fact, "Speedy" Bill's wife, Joyce, loaned him the $300 needed to start the company in 1952. The couple's four sons - Carson, Craig, Clay and Jason - have been integral to Speedway's day-to-day operations. Under their leadership, Speedway Motors will continue to serve customers with the same winning tradition established by Bill and Joyce for decades to come.
