2018 Enduro Rules

Enduro racing is a fun, simple and affordable way for first time drivers to enter auto racing and providing amateur enthusiasts an economic means to enjoy the sport.  For many years this popular racing event has challenged man and machine against the fast track oval and high banks of Wiscasset Speedway making for exciting entertainment.

We respectfully request regular weekly division drivers refrain from entering these events.  Instead create your Enduro car and have lots of fun supporting a family or crew member (who doesn’t have the opportunity to race) as your Enduro driver.  As they support you on a regular basis – this is a great way to say Thanks – and who knows you might discover the next Wiscasset Speedway champion!
