About Us

Lanier Raceplex is a 0.375-mile paved oval racetrack located in Braselton, Georgia, directly across from Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.

The track was built by championship racer Bud Lunsford. It opened in 1982 as a dirt track and was paved in 1987. Formerly known as Lanier National Speedway, the track hosted weekly local oval racing and several race series such as the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series with Super Late Models, Super Trucks, Junkyard Dogs, Outlaw Late Models, Mini Stocks, INEX Legends Cars, and INEX Bandolero Cars. Lunsford sold the track in 1995. It was closed around 2011.

In 2014, the Lanier National Speedway property was purchased by road-racing champion Jim Downing and renamed Lanier Raceplex. The infield walls, buildings, and facilities were removed and the whole track received a complete paving of the entire infield and oval. The track has since reopened featuring Arrive & Drive karting utilizing barriers to create a variety of road course track configurations. Public karting on the weekend year-around is the main focus of the track with corporate and private karting events held daily. However, Lanier Raceplex also serves as an event venue for drift competitions, drift clinics, car shows, swap meets, concerts, art festivals, and other motorsports spectator events.

Thank you for visiting Lanier Raceplex! We hope to see you on the track or spectating at one of our events soon! Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Best karting around Atlanta by far. You get banking on a few turns and speed that is not constricted by exclusively tight corners. Must try!

It was fun! You guys did a great job getting the track ready for us to run. Word is spreading at the office about what a great time we had!
