The track hosted modified stock car racing vehicles alongside the other NASCAR series. Wednesday nights were the original night for racing but the schedule eventually added Friday night racing. Ten Grand National races were raced there including the popular Beltsville 300 series of races.

Strict noise restrictions were given out in its final year of operation and the county (Prince George's County) starting monitoring the events. The track was eventually shut down, demolished, and replaced with a local community college.
