Speedway Motors-Made in Lincoln, Nebraska

Did you know we design, build and manufacture thousands of our parts right here in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA?

When hot rodding began, if you wanted a part, you had to build it yourself. That’s the spirit and work ethic "Speedy" Bill Smith embodied when he started Speedway Motors in 1952.

Since then, we’ve expanded from a few guys in a garage to several facilities including an Engine Shop, Machine Shop, Engineering Team and a whole Research & Development wing, all staffed with gearheads passionate about creating new parts and building their own cars. We work hard to create interesting parts that hot rodders enjoy, clever & useful parts to make all builders’ lives easier, and high-tech performance parts so homebuilders can compete with the pros, then drive home.

It All Starts in Engineering

Our engineers in Lincoln, NE dream up the parts of the future, the ones builders will be using for years to come. They’ve invented everything from that little gadget that makes your engine swap easier to complete chassis and suspension systems. They also build the parts that employees from all over the company invent as useful additions to the Speedway Motors catalog.

When it comes time to build the parts we dream up, the Machine Shop takes over.

The Machine Shop Builds It

Our Lincoln, NE facility features a state-of-the-art machine shop with all the high-tech CNC equipment to build anything anyone imagines. Suspension systems, spindles, birdcages...they build everything right here in Lincoln, NE. Raw materials go in one door and finished parts get loaded onto trucks, ready to be shipped to our customers and put to the test on the street or the racetrack.

Research and Development Puts It to the Test

In addition to prototyping, R&D tests our parts before they hit the shelf. They’ve built a fleet of street and race test cars to flex those parts the engineers and machine shop build. R&D makes sure the parts we manufacture can stand up to all the real-world chaos while delivering drivers and builders the performance necessary to win.
